    Looks great. I may have to try this out after my MotoZ ADV Tractionator wears out on the rear. Thanks for posting.

    Motoz Tires

    I've pushed my E-805 really hard on the street and never even squirmed. I'm not a fan of how the tread pattern wears however - the shallower sipes in the blocks go away at some point and just leaves block "paddles" after that. I'm riding on the MotoZ Adventure Tractionators now and love them. They also have a 50/50 tire that looks a bit like the Heidenau - they have way more off-road traction and are estimated to last around 8000 miles versus the overly hard Heidenau which some claim 10,000+ miles.

    Motoz Tires

    The Motoz Tractionator Adventure is the tubeless tire of choice for my KTM 1190 Adv. R. I get well over 3000 miles whereas all the others (TKC 80, Shinko 805, various Mitas) are useless by around 2200-2500 miles. Handsome devil too. I just tried to re-order and was told that the 150-70 is being re-tooled and will not be available until April/May. I was also told that others have used the 140-80 on my bike so I ordered one. Haven't spooned it on yet so I can't confirm the fitment yet.

    Motoz Tires

    Good to know. I usually let my tires leak down to about that before I bother to re-pressurize :-) I did have problems with two different Motoz front tires. One wouldn't seat on the bead because the tire bead was so much narrower than the wheel bead. The replacement tire had a leak along the bead in one spot - rotated the tire and the leak followed the tire. Eventually I installed an inner tube in the first tire and overinflated it to widen the bead. Left the tube in for days outside to get heat cycled by the sun. It worked and I got it to seat. Tried to attach photos of front and rear tires but I can't figure how to attach photos .... ahrgh, this should be easy.

    I just run the stock recommended pressure the for 1190. 42 psi in the rear and 35 psi in the front. I typically don't bother to air down for off road.

    Yep, I got 3500 miles on my first rear Tractionator - there was at least 500 miles more left on it but I had to replace it early because I was going on a five-week trip and needed fresh meat. The front Tractionator is falling a bit short. I got 9000 miles from my original TKC 80 but the Tractionator is gettting pretty scalloped at the 7000 mile mark. I'll replace it when I need my next rear in about 500 miles. I have a KTM 1190 Adventure R and I typically only get 2000-2500 miles from TKC 80, two different Mitas tires, and the Shinko 805.

    What can I say? The E10 wasn't any better and that is a 40/60 configuration versus the E09 20/80. I was disappointed. Maybe I'm a little heavy on the throttle.

    Yes, itching to try the new tubeless Motoz Adventure tires on my 1190 R when they become available - they look great. So far I've only been able to eak out around 2000 miles on my rear tire from TKC 80, Mitas E09, and E10's. Current tire is Shinko 805 and I have about 2500 miles with more to go. I just ordered another for the next rear since I don't know of anything else to try. My front TKC 80 is still intact with 7500 miles.
