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 ...
Just ordered a rear set for the XRR but the other tires (3 rears) are almost 2 years old now...

So what end result will the new revision give over the old design? Better in what way?

Hmmmm..That Good?

Look I only ride my '07 GSA off road...have been a devoted TKC fan...tire has really saved my butt off road..

BUT if the Mitas Reinforced E09 Dakar can match the size of the rear TKC and the performance off road while getting better mileage; then put me down for several!

You know the old saying.."If it is too good to be true, it probably isn't"...hope this tire lives up to the hype.

I would n´t go so far to call it a hype. . .
It´s just the attention he deserves .... as an alternative.

140/80

Guys , the 140/80 will be just fine on your 4" rims, gearing will just be a tad taller. This tire is just so much better off road and last a lot longer than the TKC ............... BUT............... there is always a trade off,,,, it does NOT hang on nearly as well on the tar, ESPECIALLY if its wet. Yep its always a compromise

Well you have me there,,, when did the compound change?,,,,,,, but those TKCs do have a nice big round knobs on them that is more suited to the tare transports. Having said that its a long time since I bought a set of TKCs as there price has climbed dramatically here in Australia. I just run a Anakee/Tourance on the 4" and keep the EO9 on the 2 1/2 for the really enjoyable stuff

I have done 3000km so far (and there is still plenty left on it)on a rear that I bought this spring. On a 94 GS. Way better off-road than the TKC but it's true that since it's not as round as the Conti, it will not ride as good on tar. For example, i used to touch my foot on the asphalt while cornering on with the TKC but I've not been able to replicate this with the Mitas. Not that big a deal to me anyway.

Also, for those interested, I'm running the tube version tubless and I don't have much problem at all with maintaining the air pressure. I do put some air in once in a while, but I can't really tell if it's due to temperature changes or leakage. About 5lbs every 2-3 weeks. Not bad IMO.

Awsome tire. I would not ride anything else at the moment.

One question to Mitas: I'd really like to have these available at the shop (in Québec) where I buy my motorcycle stuff. It would save me some waiting knowing that they would stock a few. Is there any way I can direct the shop owner to a Canadian distributor?
