So pretty much set for a E09 Dakar TL for the rear, now regarding the front.

Anybody tried a E09 in the front?
http://www.mx1canada.com/mitas-e-09-...57t-front.html

or maybe anyone with a E10 up front?

I am looking for the most aggressive off-road tires I can fit on a spare set of wheels for my Aprilia caponord - same tire size as the big GS so I took the liberty to post here

I have the E-09 "Dakar" on the front of my GS (90/90 21") and it is a lot softer than the rear. I think it will be dead when the rear is dead as opposed to going twice as long as the rear as fronts normally do. Now this could be because I am using a narrower tire than a standard GS so running a 19" will change that I am sure... so as they say your mileage will vary.

I am running the E09 back on my HP2 and a TKC front. Good combination. Not sure the E09 will give that much better milage than a TKC, just cheaper here. I have also run the new E10 which was soft (alot like the Karoo2) and also tried Heideneaus. Mitas E09's are my choice for rear at the moment.

Interesting tires. I may have to pop over next summer when I'm up that way again on the bike and pick up a couple tires.

Yes they do. I got a set for my f800gs a couple weeks back. They ship via Canada post and switch to USPS at the border.

I'm very happy with the tires, and with the vendor service.

Thanks!


Now why people aren't using the E09 up front and stick with the TKC?

I've been using E-09 both in front and rear. Rear is OK, but front is too soft and it wears very quickly... I did some 3000 kms and the front was dead

Anybody know the difference between the E09 TT and the E09 TL besides $10?

TT = Tube Type
TL = TubeLess.

I ran the E09's on the F8 before I sold it! Really love the rear but on the front they are dangerous. Squirrelly on the hwy above 120kph to the point it's scary and I wouldn't recommend it, period! Go with something else up there. On the rear they are noisy, IMHO but nothing you can't handle and they get louder as you wear them down. I put over 8000kms on a set and the rear was only half warn down so you'll get well over 12000kms out of a set and I was hard on them. Never found them bad in the wet but I didn't push it when it was wet. They are a knobby so treat them as such. I tried them on my GSA and had the same feeling of squirrelliness on the front of that bike too so it's the same overall result up front. They do hold up well offroad so I can't see going with the TKC over this one for double the cost. No brainer!
I liked them and have 3 sets hanging in my garage ready for replacement when the time comes...

you´re right
A lotta guys looking for a "one-does-it-all" - tyre...

How old is your stock ?

The whole E-Series has been revised completely in the end of 2010.They ( all ) have a higher proportion of SiO2 ...

I emailed a Mitas rep here in the states and they sent me to www.mitasmx.com for a US site that sells the E series tires. If you are running them on a GS that is tubless get the TL version as stated above by Christian.
