Bridgestone Firestone has announced that it has launched a voluntary recall campaign to replace approximately 4,202 specialty motorcycle tires. There have been no structural or performance safety issues with these tires; however the company has determined that the tires may be missing various sidewall marking (labeling) requirements. Specifically, certain bias Bridgestone brand motorcycle and scooter tires that were manufactured in Japan, fail to conform to the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 119. The Tire Identification Number (TIN) is marked on the sidewall; however, the DOT symbol is missing. In addition, the maximum load rating, corresponding inflation pressure markings, the tube type markings, and the stamping indicating the ply cord material and the number of plies are missing from the sidewall. These tires were sold in the replacement market through motorcycle shops and were not original equipment tires. The voluntary recall will continue until November 30, and your customers who have been identified as potential purchasers of the affected tires will be issued a letter stating that the owner should check all tires fitting the above description to confirm they are the affected tires. Tires included in the recall include the Accolade 4.00-18; Accolade 3.50-19; Accolade 3.50-18; Battlax 90/90-10; Battlax 3.50-10; RS10 2.50-17; and the SP Universal 3.50-8.
