Motorcycle Tire Inspection Tips Via Dunlop

The government issues about 36 tire recalls every year, and manufacturers issue even more. However, it is difficult to reach all tire owners, and defective tires may remain in circulation for many years. For this reason, it's vitally important to pay attention to the quality, performance and maintenance of your tires. For your safety and the safety of the riding public it's also important to report suspicious tire failures.

To report a tire failure or to file a complaint with the government, go to . If you've been injured as the result of a defect, be sure to seek the services of a qualified attorney.

Motorcycle tire defects usually arise during the manufacturing process, which makes the manufacturer liable for accidents arising from tire failure. But motorcycle design defects can also come into play if the tire design does not correspond to the motorcycle design. For example, the weight limits for some tires are grossly inadequate for some large cruiser models, which are designed to carry two riders and their cargo for large distances. For more on riders and weight, see (link to this article on the site under defect issues)

Poor labeling and faulty installation can also lead to accidents, which fall under product liability laws.

Tire Performance

Suspect a tire defect if any of the following occurs:

  • Tire malfunctions, especially on fairly new tires
  • Strange wobbles or noises immediately prior to the crash
  • Motorcycle malfunction "for no reason"
  • A crash with no apparent cause (good weather, no driver impairment, no excessive speed, etc)
  • Accident involving heavily loaded motorcycle

Tire Safety Tips

Most riders realize their bike's sole connection to the unforgiving asphalt is a thin, pliable hoop of rubber encircling the wheel. For this reason it's crucial to pay attention to tire maintenance. Here are good tips, courtesy of Cruiser Magazine:

1. Air It Out: Check tire pressure every chance you get. There's probably no simpler procedure that's more important and more ignored by bikers of every stripe. The air, not the carcass, supports the bike, and underinflation is a tire's number one enemy. (Make sure the tires are cool when you take the reading.) For a better tractrion in wet conditions, increase pressures by about 10 percent. Unsure of what the pressure is supposed to be? Look for a sticker somewhre on the bike. It is also probably on the VIN (serial number) plate hear the steering head with the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) and gross axle weight ratings (GAWR) information.

  • Avatar SFAcoustic What is the best way to break in brand new motorcycle tires?
    Mar 06, 2007 by SFAcoustic | Posted in Motorcycles

    On my 89 Ninja 750, the new rear tire has scared me more than a few times. VERY slippery at first (which I hear is normal) but now I have about 80 miles on it and I still will slip on a decent right turn, for example. On Friday, I was out in 60 degree weather and I turned right, the wheel slipped and my right foot kicked the ground HARD in response and somehow I did not go down. There must be a better, safer way than this to break in the edges of tires? I am not even taking a knee or anything crazy! The tire is OEM fit, Maxxis rear tire. The fit is exactly OEM, if that helps. 150/70 18 inch rear.

    • Cheng Shin uses a very waxy mold release agent. This stuff will give you trouble in the cold, as you noticed. It does not come off in 1/4 mile as stated above. It will come off in warm weather, but not in the cold. Your best bet: warm water, dish soap and a scotch brite pad. Scuff all the way out past the edge of the tread, up into the sidewall. Do the front tire too. This is the reason I don t mount new ones until May. I like thier tires, they last and have good grip at a low price. Got a set on the Honda right now. When the Dunlop wears out this summer, the HD gets a new set of Made in Taiwan …

  • Avatar blindingblue How often must you replace motorcycle tires?
    Apr 30, 2007 by blindingblue | Posted in Motorcycles

    I m looking at getting a 2001 ZX-6R or similar (R1, R6 etc). I d drive mainly locally some highway, but never racing or spinning the tires etc. How often must the tires be replaced? How much does it usually cost? Also, how often must oil be changed and whats the price on that? Thanks!

    • Tire life is all going to depend on how you ride the bike and what PSI you keep it at. The higher the PSI the more miles you will get, but the less grip you will have. Generally a good sticky sportbike tire will last 3-5k miles. I run about 25psi in the rear for stability during slow wheelies so I only get 2-3k miles with no burnouts. I have a spare rim I put garbage tires on for burnouts. Costs a little over $200 for a new pair. $Free-$10 for throwaways. Change oil every 3 months, or 1500 miles whichever comes first. cost depends on what kinda oil you use. I use Castrol GTX and it costs me about …
