Front TKC lasts about 8K. Sometimes cupping gets bad and I change it out earlier.

For me rears can last 4K.

Hey Bayner,

I'm running a TKC up front again but I switch tires a bit so I've lost track of what it has but I think 13,000kms is doable, but 15k may be pushing it depending on the surface/use. I think it lasted more than 16k on the old KLR way back when. Much lighter, no power and wimpy brakes though.
Keep the pressure up and easy on the brakes on the pavement . I've also flipped it around to even out the cupping. I'm not dead...yet...

Dave

Yah, that seemed to be in line with my experiences as well. I'm just going to go with an E07 front. I think that will hopefully go the distance, albeit with a bit less bite.

I just recived Pirelly MT-21 (after reading this threat) I decided this will do just fine for going offroad and daily pavement commute in Chicago suburbs. Also I will try to get my hands on E-09 DAKAR.

Mitas E-07 Dual Sport Front Tire DOT
90/90-21 TT

Mitas E-07 Dual Sport Rear Tire DOT
150/70-17 TL -

I have a brand new,in the box, set of Mitas tires for a BMW F800GS.
These tires are very hard to get here in the US.
I purchased them just before I sold my bike, the buyer was maxed out on the purchase and decided not to purchase the tires. His loss is your gain.
Selling for below my cost $250 plus shipping, or come pick them up.
Pictures to follow.

FYI just fitted the Metzler Karoo T rear and Pirelli Scorpion Rally front.
Very good so far on the dirt, especially the front, and good on road seem to hold well tho a little noisy, not too many K's on them yet.

I had the Karoo 2T's and loved them BUT I only got 2200kms out of the rear and 3500 from the front.......too expensive for that kind of mileage....

I am loving the Mitas E-07's!!!

I will never buy a Heideneau again!
