News: Continental announce recall of certain motorcycle tyres
Voluntary a tyre exchange programme announced
German tyre manufacturer, Continental, has announced a global recall campaign for certain motorcycle tyres that the company says could be susceptible to air loss and possible separation. The recall affects tyres that were used for both OEM and replacement use between 2007 and 2014 in sizes 120/70 ZR 17 and 120/70 R17 including any tyres with DOT serial numbers between 1907 and 2614.
The tyre models affected include ContiSportAttack, ContiSportAttack 2, ContiAttack SM, ContiRaceAttack Comp. Soft, ContiRaceAttack Comp. Medium, ContiRaceAttack Comp. Endurance and ContiRoadAttack 2 GT W.
To date no accidents or injuries have been attributed to the affected tyres, and this recall is a precautionary measure. A Continental spokesperson has said that all affected tyres will be eligible for replacement regardless of condition. If you have tyres affected you should contact your local Continental distributor to arrange to have them exchanged.
