    Michelin Pilot Power 2CT RECALL

    Michelin Announces Motorcycle Tire Recall

    To date, no accidents or injuries reported

    GREENVILLE, S.C., June 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Michelin has notified the
    National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Transport Canada
    that it is recalling Michelin(R) Pilot(R) Power 2CT and Pilot(R) Power
    120/70 ZR 17 (58W) front motorcycle tires with the "Made in France"
    markings in the United States and Canada. This recall involves these
    specific tires only and has no impact on any other Michelin tires. Related
    actions are under way in other countries.
    An examination of these tires showed a possible defect in the tread due
    to a manufacturing irregularity. No cases of pressure loss have been
    reported and no accidents have occurred.
    Because rider safety is the primary concern, Michelin has decided as a
    precaution to replace the 120/70 ZR 17 (58W) Michelin Pilot Power 2CT and
    Michelin Pilot Power front tires, which can be identified by the following
    markings on the sidewall:
    -- a "Made in France" label
    -- DOT 6UCW 980T or DOT 6UCW 979T
    Any consumer in the United States or Canada who believes they are
    affected by the recall should not wait to receive notification but should
    call Michelin Consumer Relations at 1 866 324 2835.
    The company will be replacing all potentially affected tires in a
    comprehensive commitment to retrieve from the market any tire that does not
    meet Michelin quality standards. Replacement tires are available at no cost
    (including mounting and balancing) to consumers through participating
    Michelin(R) motorcycle tire servicing retailers.

    Of course, my new Pilot is on the recall list! The best part about it was my dealer called ME to check my tire. If you're in Tulsa be sure to stop by The Kinetic Playground and say hello to Donny and Becky. They are good people!
