KTM 990 Riders - Mitas EO7 pressure question

Hi all. So I have a mitas Eo7 rear and a conti tkc 80 front.
What pressures do you guys run? And what would you recommend for both off road and pavement use?

I'm not fat, I'm pregnant with icecreams baby.

you are going to get 4,000,000 opinions....

You will have to work it out for yourself...having said that...

TKC 80 is a SOFT sidewall tire for the 21" wheel....very easy to pinch flat and no fun when she blows on the freeway....Set it near 30psi and work from there...if you go lower than 28ish and hit anything....bye bye tube....

Back tire is not as touchy....set it to 32 for everything and leave it...

a few pounds more or less on a 500lb+, 100hp+ bike means nada.....

We run on average higher pressure than what has been posted here. On pavement anything between 2.8bar to 3.0 bar. I run E09's but the guys with the bigger bikes over here run similar pressures.
I run 2.8 back and 2.6 front ,but running Mitas XT644 up front. I only deflate if the going gets rough or really soft,otherwise good gravel I run the same pressures.

i keep mine at 33 psi. Not a problem, never had a flat.
This is my third set.
You could lower them to get more traction, but be carefull.
I wouldnt go lower than 28, but thats just me.
Need some parts? shoot me up an mail and i'll quote it to you.
