Just put a set of E07's on my G/S, and a set of E08's which I had sitting under the bench on the XT 600.

The 07's suit me, the G/S and the tracks I ride better than anything else I've tried so far, although I don't intentionally do much mud or sand. Much better than the Scorpion A/T's I had last . Running the at 28/30 for now , but I might try a little less.

I inherited a set of deathwings on the XT, so as you can imagine the 08's are a huge improvement on them.
I am running them at 22 PS F&R, as per the book, and they are excellent on both gravel tracks and bitumen at that. Much better than I expected.

At least I thought they were good , but coming down through the Bugle Ranges this morning I was flagged down by a , err, lady, in a farm ute - she pointed at the 08 and shouted - "your back tire is bald, you have been sliding all over the place every corner!"- the dozy bitch thought it was a knobby with the knobs worn off!
I said that I new it was bald, and was booked in at Strath to have a new tire fitted, and she drove of shaking her head at the stupidity of people who drive in bald tires!

3 bar is 45psi. Seems a bit high to me, add in our summer road temps, don't you think?

Mitas is likely quoting absolute pressure where 3.0 Bar would equal the 200kpa (30psi) relative or above the ambient atmospheric pressure reading you would be more used to.

I've never heard of manufacturers quoting "absolute pressures" ~ hard to picture where such a concept could come in useful [even near the top of Mt Everest].

Perhaps it's 3.0 bars (near enough to 45 psi) for a 40.C day and a 300 Kg rear loading.

I haven't heard of it either,just looking for an explaination.
Mitas is usually pretty acurate with his advice.

30psi is generally a tad high for me but I'm not an EO7 fan

Done 6000 KM on the E07's on the G/S .

Front is around 1/2 worn, still has a nice round profile, no scalloping or uneven wear.

Rear is around 1/3 worn , but the profile has flattened out a bit.

Picked up a nail in the rear, twice, and with Michelin HD tubes I was able to put a bit air in and ride 15/20 km to the repair shop.

Looks like the E07's are going to last at least twice as long as the Distanzas and Scorpions I have been using.

I have 28 f & 30 rear, for 80% bitumen 20% dirt roads - great on the black top and acceptable on the dirt.

But my bike weighs about 330 kg with a full tank and me aboard, and I dont push things on the dirt.

I would start there , then try reducing the pressures a couple of lbs at a time until you find something that suits you.

By the way its the EO-9 Dakar 140-80-18

What did you run it on?

All up Ill be around the 340kg+ mark bike, rider, lots of fuel and a bit of gear Oh and its going to be getting a hard time

Anyone else run one on a 640Adv.With the tyre sitting there unfitted its just over 160mm wide.
I know it will pull in a bit once fitted up but do they fit up alright on the 2.5 rim.

MT21,the new Desert, EO-9 Dakar all 140-80-18's





Cheers Matt

That would have to be the hardest tyre I have ever fitted to my 640 adventure,
did a Kimberly trip on mine got about 8,000 km out of it at about 32 psi,
my opinion its to big for the bike I had to cut some off the edge of the knobs to clear the chain guard, bloody tuff tyre but I think its over kill for a 640.
Cheers Phil

The last one I used was the 130 and it seemed to small.

Do you happen to have a pic of the tyre fitted Phil

Cheers Matt
