First tyres on the bike were TKC80's. Rear lasted 8,000kmThanks for the info guys. I like the idea of TKC80 front and Mitas E07+ rear. Think I look into that combination some more.
Replaced the rear with a Mitas E-10 Dakar. Lasted 6,500km; was advertised to wear longer than TKC. Probably more rock riding and heavier throttle hand
Re-shoed with Mitas E-10 Dakar front with E07+ rear. Amazed at the good handling on and off-road in dry-dusty and wet weather, though E-07+ will slide sideways on wet grass and mud. E-10 front has a rounder profile then the TKC and rolls into corners better. It's also a much stiffer tyre so better rim protection at fast speed on rocky FSR's.
Swapped out the E07+ at 6,000km (it was ½ worn) with an E-10 to take a Chris Birch course - wanted knobby rear. That E-10 is toast at 4.000km - the rocks in Squamish and Harrison Last / Kookipi are brutal on tyres - and I'm riding a lost faster.
I've just ordered a new set of TKC80s - front and rear - want to see how traction compares with the Mitas.
