Go with Mitas C-21 Stone King Yellow Stripe for the front. You won't be disappointed.

As a 50/50? A bit aggressive no?

+3 for the E-07 over the K60 for the rear. Never run the fronts of either.
I'd recommend the E-10 as a front option too. I ran one with the E-07 rr and it was good. Back to the TKC up front now though and it's a better....except for the soft casing in the dirt.

Check out the Shinko 705. Probably a 75/25 tire, very reasonable price. Handles great on street, dirt and gravel roads and last a long time. You'll get a set of Shinko's for less than one rear K 60.

That's my do-it-all combo as well, E-07 rear + TKC80 front.

www..durelleracing.com. Has a full line of Mitas Dualsport tires coming . Why go to Canada when you can buy them in the states.

Yeah, WHEN is the big question. Any more updates on the ETA? The website has no info I can find.

I went to MX1 Canada and they only have the 2 ply in stock not the Dakars and oh by the way they want to charge $50.00 to ship to North Carolina. There has to be a better way. I also went to the durellerracing site and they don't say anything about carrying the mitas brand. Anybody North of the Border want to pick me up a rear E0-7 and send down for a reasonable price?

Call Durelle. They will let you know. He is going to get another website going for the Mitas tires.

I will post in the Vendors section as soon as possible. We are waiting on a backorder to finish the container load.

Dave, what pressures do you run for the E-07 / TKC80 combo for both on and off road (if you even change them) ?

Hey moto74,

On the street I run em typically at 36/36 (for longer life) and on the dirt I usually run them a little lower, 30ish. I won't go lower than that in the front because of the soft casing on the tkc and we tend to ride a lot of fast stuff with lots of rocks and I always seem to hit some rocks hard. My front wheel resembles a stop sign

That being said we had a ride yesterday that had a lot of slick areas and muddy bits (and a tiny bit of shallow snow) and I was at about 32/32 and really impressed with how they worked! Only one moment.
I must have close to 10,000 kms on the back and probably 7,000km on the front so they aren't new either.

Colin from MX1 Canada was riding with us too on his 990 and he had the new Mitas C23 up front and he was happy with it. It's more of a 80 dirt/20 street deep tread tire that was just starting to settle in on the hwy.

Dave

Thanks for that Dave. I've been running both TKC's for a while and am trying the E-07 for an all-rounder rear. Have usually just run them at 30/30. I reversed my front at 5K, it's got 10K on it now and maybe a few thou left.
