In stock


 

This MFE 99 Explorer is a tube-type DOT-approved rear tire with a load and speed rating of 65T.

Note: MEFO recommends at least 30.5 PSI in this tire for best performance and wear on motorcycles with an engine displacement of 650cc or less, and at least 35 PSI on motorcycles with an engine displacement of greater than 650cc.

The MEFO Explorer is the long distance professional dual-sport tire. Customers have reported to us that a set of Explorers can routinely take about 7,000-9,000 miles of use under the harsh adventure-touring conditions of Alaska. With secure, stable handling on dirt or wet pavement and high mileage performance, the Explorer has excellent all around versatility. Recommended for 50% street and 50% dirt riding. A great tire that will go anywhere and get you home again! DOT-approved.

Read what our customers have to say about these tires:

Had my recent order (MEFO front and rear tires) installed yesterday.

The first to ride my bike was the tech for the test ride as I also had the annual and 6k service completed. Conditions were about 42F, dark, and rainy. He said the tires stuck in corners, maybe a little road noise but nothing bad. He was impressed.

My ride home was at night, in rain, and the temp lowered to 38F by the time I got home from the 135 mile trip. My impression is this is perhaps the best Motorrad tire I have ever encountered. Even being new, I detected no slickness which was astounding considering the rain and temperature.

There is nothing I can say bad about the tires.

I bought my mefos last fall and just changed them 11200 miles on my 08 KLR loaded down with 40 liter caribou cases and a 60 qt dry bag from Ohio to Belize and back over Christmas and almost every day since rain shine or snow these tires are awesome (Posted on 8/25/14)

I run them at 20psi/32psi off/on and I love them and if I can get even 6500 miles I'll buy them again.
I live in Vancouver BC so they have seen everything. (Posted on 7/28/14)

This is my second Mefo Explorer rear tire. I got 5,985 miles on the previous one (front tire still has good tread at this mileage). Ridden on a KLR 70% road, 30% off road with loaded panniers and trunk for most of the mileage. Photo of old vs. new for comparison. (Posted on 7/17/14)
