Hi Brockie. I'm not asserting anything. Most people have given the E-07 tyres a really good wrap. The E-07+ tyres on the V-Stroms are an unknown because as to date the front tyre size for the V-Stroms doesn't exist.

The E-07+ tyres may well turn out to be better, but we are going to have to wait and see. They certainly have the appearance of tractor tyres.

I don't think I will ever go back to K60's.....

Now Twisted throttle says (2) rear Dakars in stock...If I bought those I would be good for the next 40K....lol! Then what if they put them on closeout prices like they did the Sava's? ut:

Dammit, the rumor might be true. I emailed RawHyde since they stock a ton of E07's. The last order was filled with the "+" spec tire and they didn't get any of the original Dakar E07's.

Then Twisted throttle shipped me (1) out of (2) saying that second one is on back-order.......agrh!

For those who run E-07s, what pressures do you run them at? All I can find on the Mitas site is max pressure (2.9bar / 42 psi).

I’ve been running mine according to the Suzuki label on the swing arm. 33 psi front. 36 psi rear 1up, 41 psi rear 2up or loaded. I haven’t had any problems, but am wondering if anyone has any better ideas. ( @Brockie ; @Big B )

Well, if the older version of the E07 isn't going to be made any more (and from my searches on the web, that seems to be the case), hopefully the Motoz Tractionator GPS will start becoming more readily available. If the new E07 Plus can only be relied on for 2500 miles, I'd rather go back to the Shinko 705. Much cheaper. Though knowing how wildly the mileage on a tire can vary between one person to the next, I'm going to have to reserve judgement til I try one myself. There are guys on ADV Rider who saying they got anywhere from 9000 miles to 10,850 miles on a rear, so there's obviously a wide range of possibilities with the E07+.

On my recent trip, I was two up and loaded, and I ran both the front and rear at 42. The tires have about 5700 miles on them now, maybe a little more, and still look good. They handled just fine at that pressure on gravel, dirt, and pavment (including wet pavement).

The same. Higher 36/41 are better for extended high speed trips, but these days I prefer the lesser used/more winding roads.

I used to run mine at the higher pressures, but have dropped down to the 33/38 loaded. Wear is almost the same, but I like the way the tire handles better with the slightly lower pressure.

Most are getting 10,000 or more(Dakar version), but after 8ish the off road capability is diminished. Once the tire gets that flat profile from the pavement and looks like it's almost done it will last another 5K. Now, this was on the original E07 which unfortunately Mitas has discontinued. The new 'Plus' has not been out long enough for a multi rider mileage comparison from the hive. Here is a thread on the original:
https://advrider.com/index.php?threa...urvey.1268527/

Cyclopathic ran his rear Dakar for over 25,000 miles....on lower pressures:
https://advrider.com/index.php?threa...urvey.1268527/

I'm not a marketing dude, but is seems to me Cyclo's mileage would have made a great ad campaign. But instead they discontinue what many of us feel is the perfect long range and off road 50/50 rear adventure tire.....IDIOTS

I am putting on an E07+ Dakar on the rear and an E07 Dakar on the front today. The E07+ front is still not avail in our size as far as I know, at least it wasn't at fortnine when I bought mine a couple weeks ago.

I hope the E07+ Dakar lasts but we will see. A bit more than half a season left for me and I've put on about 3,000 miles on this year, mostly two up and at least half two up and loaded with camping gear, so hopefully I don't burn through this tire before the end of the season. Hell I put that 3k onto a set of pretty much finished anakee 2s, if the e07+ only goes 2500 that will be extremely disappointing. Part of why I chose them was the mileage people were getting on the E07 Dakar. I should have checked this aspect of the E07+ but I guess I'll just be a guinea pig.
