Bridgestone America’s tire operation has recalled 1,018 Bridgestone Exedra G850 G Motorcycle tires, size 180/70R16 77H, sold as original equipment for model year 2008 and 2009 Triumph Rocket III touring motorcycles. The motorcycle to which these tires are applied develops very high torque and can cause torque-induced degradation in a body ply which may result in interlinear cracking that may lead to a slow leak in the rear tire. The condition is said not to affect the front tire. The affected tires may begin to vibrate at moderate speeds.
Continued use of a tire with this condition could lead to a vehicle crash. Bridgestone is working with Triumph to notify owners and the defective tires will be replaced free of charge. In addition, the front tire will be replaced free of charge due to the matching requirements of the motorcycle. This safety recall began on April 21, 2009. Owners may contact Bridgestone toll-free at 1-800-465-1904.
