Bridgestone Recall-Motorcycle Tires on Triumph

Triumph Rocket III Touring
April 03, 2009
Category: North America
Bridgestone Americas Tire Operation is recalling 957 Bridgestone Exedra G850 G motorcycle tires, size 180/70R16 77H, sold as OE on 2008 and 2009 Triumph Rocket III Touring motorcycles.
The very high torque Rocket III motorcycle can cause torque-induced degradation in a body ply, which may result in the tire’s inner liner cracking, leading to a slow leak in the rear tire only. Affected tires can begin to vibrate at moderate speeds, producing the risk of a crash.
BATO and Triumph are working to notify owners, and will replace defective tires – and the matching front tires – free of charge
