What are the defects?

The tyres may have thin innerliner gauge that could develop into a tyre failure.

What are the hazards?

If the innerliner of the tyre degrades this increases the risk of tyre failure, which could lead to rapid loss of inflation pressure and loss of motorcycle control increasing the risk of an accident.

What should consumers do?

Consumers should contact the dealer from which they purchased their tyres to arrange an inspection and a replacement of affected tyres, free of charge.
Driving at high speeds should be avoided until the tyres have been inspected and replaced if they fall within the DOT Tyre Identification Numbers.

Consumers can contact Pro Accessories Australia on 07 3277 0675 or e-mail Cooper Tire & Rubber Company Europe Ltd at tyrerecall@coopertire.com
