Motoz

As I suggested in my PM Gadget I think the Motoz desert tractionator is a better choice on the rear; predictable feel right up until the canvas is exposed. 5500Km on a DRZ including some high speed tar roads. In fact unless i had noticed it was worn visually, I could not tell by the seat of my pants feel.

I am not that confident with the grip on the E09 rear once it is worn.

I am confident with the Michelin Starcross HP4 front . excellent wear and grip.

I gave my E09 front away to my brother -in-law, of whom I am not fond !!!!!!

With your crossing trip, will it be fast or at a gentleman's pace?

No idea about the pace... with 16 days for the crossing, I guess it will be reasonably comfortable.

I had a CO2 rear & threw it off after about 500km... great on rocks/stone, nothing else, including dry tar. (probably a good match to the E09 front ).... the guy I gave it to loved it, and wore it down to nothing after a few years.

I'm looking at getting my hands on a few sets of tyres (likely candidates) & heading out for some test riding in late January. At the moment I have the Pirelli MX Extra X on the front & find it pretty good all round & behaves a lot like the Mitas C21... but, as with many, not sure about the longevity.



Know of anyone that wants an E09 front? probably done about 1000km.

Anyone running a T644 front on a tiger 800xc? I got an e07 rear that seems good so far, 1200ks, but the Karoo on the front is getting a bit shagged after 7500ks.

Had an unfortunate 'incident' - after riding from home to work, a journey orf about 35klms, a tthe 20klms mark the bead of the front E07 seemingly 'collapsed' entering a slight bend at about 80klms / hr - resulting in tank slap and the inevitable Ninja roll - bruises, ribs and collarbone and a lesson in ATGATT ... The Beemer's crash bars did the job with only a windscreen and the usual bits broken

Tyre deflated in a moment - no other visible damage to tyre itself that could be seen at the scene so to speak and pressures were ok - No indication of leakage, had negotiated plenty of corners prior to the incident with no tell tail lethargy in steering or moments ..

ANYONE ELSE HAD THIS HAPPEN? - Will take some pictures when I can get the beast back to the garage ane post up.

Will be contacting the importer early new year to see what they intend to do.

Mitas has identified a potential product safety issue associated with the tubeless seal of two sizes of E-07 tyres. Under certain conditions the tyre bead may leak air which could, in extreme circumstances, result in a rapid deflation of the tyre. Mitas has issued a voluntary recall of these tyres.

The issue affects all tubeless (TL) 19” E-07 tyres produced in 2011 and 2012, in the following sizes:

100/90-19 E07 Dual Sport TL 57T
110/80-19 E07 Dual Sport TL 59T

Please note that ALL stock of these sizes sold in Australia is affected. No other tyres are affected.


Now I know why I went arse up last August.

There's some discussions going back to page 52........

so the Q when are they going to have a shipment of new tyres that wont do this and
more important how do you tell which ones on the recall look like
are there any markings on the tyres to distinguish these in the future so you dont get caught out with a faulty one

As mentioned 2 posts ago, the information started coming in on page 52........ Reading forward, to page 53, you would have found this:

The Czech tyre producer Mitas is voluntarily recalling 1,752 tubeless E-07 motorcycle tyres from the market. These tyres were sold to customers mostly in Europe. The tyre sizes subject to recall are:

110/80-19 M/C 59T E-07 TL MI
100/90-19 M/C 57T E-07 TL MI
110/80-19 M/C 59T E-07 DAKAR TL MI

Under extreme conditions the affected tyres can suddenly lose air pressure. Customers can determine whether their tyre is subject to recall by checking the brand name “MITAS”, tyre name “E-07,” inscription “tubeless” and DOT codes ranging from 0111 through to 4812, on the tyre sidewall. No other Mitas tyres are affected.

All customers are advised to contact the point of purchase to discuss options for replacement.

Bike is back from the scene. More damage than first thought. Probable write off if truth be known given price of BMW parts.

The importer has called me a couple of times and the Tyre serial numbers sent on. Tyre is coming off rim and being sent to Melbourne for further analysis.

There does appear to be a defined area where the wall has collapsed but this maybe result of the riding while deflated.

Just put a new 21 EO7 on the front of my R80 G/S - seems much improved from earlier versions..

Hope you are OK Mark. You need to buy a new tiger anyway...
