Recall Metzeler Tourance

Postby pingvin » Tue Sep 28, 2010 10:30 am

METZELER is recalling its tyre Metzeler Tourance 150/70 R17 M/C 69V manufactured in weeks 09 and 10 of 2010. As part of METZELER's ongoing quality checks we have identified an issue with one batch of tyres produced in weeks 9 and 10 of 2010 and in line with METZELER's commitment to consumer safety have decided to commence a voluntary safety recall to remove all such affected tyres from the market. The affected tyres could suffer tread block tearing which on some occasions could lead to the separation of some blocks, causing a sudden unexpected vibration of the motorcycle. In any case there is no risk of air loss from the tyre. As a precautionary measure, METZELER has decided to replace the affected tyres which are only as follows: Tyre size: 150/70 R17M/C 69V Tourance (Rear), identifiable by the following markings on the sidewall:

DOT EB OY B279 0910 or DOT EB OY B279 1010 ...
2010 KTM 990 SMR
2009 KTM 690 Enduro
2017 KTM 450 EXC-F
1981 Husqvarna 420 AE
1965 Husqvarna 250

Thanks - I do appreciate the information.

I think that there are very few members who this might apply to, though :D
