It was a 130 E07 on my G/S.

There is a post on this thread by Mitas which gives their recommendations for Knobs / E09s run on the bitumen / at high speed and from memory it was 10/15 lbs higher than what most people seem to suggest - around the 40 lb mark.

On dirt just suit yourself, but as far as tire life is concerned higher pressure is usually better.

Mitas E09 tyre failing

Hi all,

So I had an E09 Dakar fitted to the rear of my 690 enduro prior to Christmas anticipating the dry rocky conditions in the Victorian high country. I've had one once before on my DR650 which I would have probably got about 6000km out of riding mostly Flinders Ranges type terrain.
We've had a fairly short day of 135km in steepish hills around Omeo today but I suspect something is not right with this tyre. I generally run about 20psi in the rear. It seems to be chipping really badly and its happening on the drive side all the way to the root of the tread. I certainly havn't been doing anything different with my riding style. Last tyre I had on was a MT21 which did more than 4500km. I would expect the Mitas to get at least that, but at this rate I've got buckleys of that. Anyone else got any experience with this?
My brothers 690 has a D908 on it, same pressure etc and is nothing like this.

Mitas EO7 Tire Recall Dec 2012

Mitas is recalling 1,752 tubeless E-07 motorcycle tyres


Prague, 21 December 2012 – 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 loose 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.

The recalled tyres were made in the Czech Republic.

The recall follows a quarantine of stocks at tyre dealers. All customers are advised to contact the point of purchase to discuss options for replacement. The improved E-07 tyres will be made available at sales points in February 2013.

Mitas has notified the Czech Trade Inspection Authority which is expected to submit the notice to the EU-wide RAPEX system. Non-EU authorities will be informed in due course.

The DOT marking is a combination of numbers and letters, and it identifies the tyre production plant and date of production. The manufacturing date is a four number code following the plant code. The date code signifies the week and year of production. For example, the DOT code “6J 0512” is shown on a tyre which was manufactured in Mitas’ Zlin factory (code 6J) in the 5th week of 2012. The DOT code is always shown on the sidewall for easy identification. The recalled DOT range of 0111 through to 4812 contains tyres made from January 2011 (0111) to November 2012 (4812).

The list of countries affected by the recall: Australia, Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, Czech Republic, Estonia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, New Zealand, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, UK, Ukraine, USA and Venezuela.


MITAS a.s is one of Europe’s leading producers of agricultural tyres. Mitas manufactures and sells tyres under three brand names: the company’s own Mitas and Cultor, and Continental under licence. In addition, MITAS a.s. produces and distributes a wide range of Mitas-branded industrial and motorcycle tyres. MITAS a.s. is a member of ČGS HOLDING a.s. and operates three production plants in the Czech Republic, one in Serbia and one in the USA, and maintains a global sales and distribution network.

Tyre pressure is to high , and that looks like wear and tear to me ,14-15psi let the tyre flex not skim on the rocks
Let it down about 2 psi at a time (about 2-3 seconds) would not go below 13 psi in rocky cond,

20psi for road
13-16 off road

I'd be inclined to agree with that (as an armchair expert), the E09 Dakar has an extremely hard case which would cause the tire to skip over rocks if pressure was too high.

As DRF suggests, get onto Mitas in Germany, through the Vendors section and pose the question to them.

Compound fault

I recall that a batch of E09 s had a faulty compund with thsi chipping issue at low Km. Ask the Mitas guy.

I have a E09 front tyre that I plan to give to someone I don't like. My rear E09 has 4000 km and might last another 1500 Km (on a DRZ400.)

Dakar

The recommended pressure for the E-09 Dakar is actually 40psi.

It's definately worth going to the Mitas thread in the Vendors section.

E09 premeture wear

Hi Mitas,

I had an E09 Dakar fitted to the rear of my 690 enduro prior to Christmas anticipating the dry rocky conditions in the Victorian high country. I've had one once before on my DR650 which I would have probably got about 6000km out of riding mostly Flinders Ranges type terrain.

It seems to be chipping badly and its happening on the drive side all the way to the root of the tread. I certainly havn't been doing anything different with my riding style. Last tyre I had on was a MT21 which did more than 4500km. I would expect the E09 to get at least that, but at this rate I've got buckleys of that. My brothers 690 has a D908 on it, same pressure etc and is nothing like this.
Can you shed any light on this please?

Thanks guys, I'll try about 15psi cold tomorrow and see how things progress. I've re-posted this in the Mitas thread to see what they have to say.

40psi offroad? You can't be serious?? 40psi may be the max pressure for fully loaded maybe.

By the way 40psi is the max pressure not recommended at 40psi this would have no traction but good for power sliding thou, man your eye balls will rattling around in your head ,
on road not a problem ,

?

I'm not disagreeing that 15psi would be good to run on. It will be interesting to see what Mr Mitas has to say about it all. Regardless of the pressures, that wear doesn't look right.

I must admit that it's been a while since I read the 40psi bit on the tyre..... Having re-read it, it's a "maximum load of 355kg @ 40psi"

I'd be looking at 18psi in the rear without rim locks.

Update.......

Here is a bit of an update after a couple more days ride. I am now running with 15psi cold.
Completed 440km now. The first post after 135km was fairly tame riding really.
Yesterdays 200km was alot more aggressive riding with lots of rocky sections.
Just as a comparison, the 3rd photo is my brothers D908 with 3000km on it, same bike, same tyre pressure. Similar rider etc. Think I know which one I would go for next. Maybe a different result in flat desert riding but when there is lots of hills and rock involved I wont be getting onother one. I would love to know how the MT21 would have handled it. I cant see it being any worse than the mitas. Oh and did I mention it doesn't do well in the mud
