Non-plus Mitas e07 are not available in 130/80 only plus you will have to go to 140 if you want it.
I'm running Sava mc60 front/E07 Dakar rear on my other bike in 110/80 140/80 and want to go to common size.. at least for rear.. will keep front as 100/90 is better off pavement and IIRC front rim is 2.0" not 2.5".
Since the mc60 are no longer available I am thinking Anakee Wild/E07 Dakar f/r with tubeless kit.. will see
"Non-plus Mitas e07 are not available in 130/80 only plus you will have to go to 140 if you want it." - it's listed on the Mitas website - I should know later today what the dealer says. The part numbers are 24133 for the standard 130/80-17 E-07 and 24135 for the E-07+. I don't see a Dakar version listed in that size. Specs say (I haven't measured it myself) that the Xcountry front rim is 2.5" wide. The 140/80 is too wide for the 3.0" rear wheel (again, specs say IDK that personally). I'm going to stick to the OEM sizes if at all possible until I get to know the bike in it's standard form.
I have the E07 100/90 in the front and E07+ 130 in the rear. Good combination, works great.
There is no yellow on mine
It has removable rear foot peg holders
It's a real hoot to ride!
So then that would be the 1st generation - or in the USA, 2007 or 2008 model year.
Any suggestions on inexpensive (generic?) bigger windscreen?
Take a look at Givi A660
So does it really fit, have you tried?
If you're considering a windshield that small a good option might be Puig 0869.
I have one on my Xco now.
It's fantastic off road and I even prefer wind protection on road to the much larger Givi A660.
Very cheap and very easy to install.
Bike already has OEM windscreen I am looking at something bigger for winter.. like Givi 147A
That's cca 6cm taller than the A660 I was using.
I think that's a very good choice.
The A660 was directing the wind to the top of my helmet, creating a lot of buffeting and noise at speed.
The extra 6cm would take care of that.
The A660 comes with a kit for steel handlebars, that's too small for our aluminium bars so I had to get a set of adapters. It's probably the same for 147A.
147A is for R1200R and should mount to stock bracket
I ended up getting the complete OEM kit.
How stiff is the sidewall on the rear? And how do they work on wet pavement vs on (easy) trails?
I have accumulated most of the parts for a maintenance marathon.
Still waiting for spark plugs and the oil filter compartment o-ring.
» Oil and filter change (10-40 Mobil 1 motorcycle oil). Switching to a Touratech flush drain plug.
» Cooling System Flush
» Replace Air filter
» PM: Clean Throttle body and idle air actuator, install crankcase breather filter
» Tires/tubes/rim strips. Check wheel bearings and spacers. Check/replace? Cush rubbers.
» Brake pads front and rear
» Brake fluid flush (Non-ABS)
» Chain Maintenance, maybe swing arm bearing clean and repack?
» Front fork service (oil change, seals seem to be fine)
I have an XChallenge Skid plate and touratech luggage rack to install. I substituted my Krauser top box mounting plate for the touratech piece. Bolted right up with only a minor enlargement of two mounting slots. Not sure if the Aprillia hanguards will fit.
Don't know about the sidewall, I guess it's stiff? Works nice on wet pavement. At on point I was on a concrete section of the autobahn in the pouring rain, a rear wheel drive Mercedes had spun out but I didn't feel anything wrong with my bike. I have had some traction issues with slick asphalt in Mediterranean countries.
Depends on which one (Dakar or not) you get but they both stiff moFu to the point that I will never install one with tubes again.
They work fine on pavement as long as you don't run high (36psi+) pressure. People were running 32psi on S10 so for XCO I wouldn't go more than 28 rear/22 front.
The r1200r kit? XCO kit with short screen? could you elaborate thnx
i think there's only one kind for the XCo. it's that one.
you'll see it in my recent EU RR.
