Michelin North America, Inc. (Michelin) is recalling certain Pilot Power 3 replacement sport motorcycle tires, size 180/55ZR17 (73W), manufactured between April 17, 2016 and May 7, 2016. These tires are missing the required maximum load and corresponding inflation pressure information on the sidewall. As such, these tires fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 119, “New Pneumatic Tires-Other Than Passenger Cars.”
Without the required maximum load and corresponding inflation pressure information on the sidewall, improper use of the tire may result, increasing the risk of tire failure and a crash.
