- Safety recall program on ContiMotion MC tires on Honda Gold Wing 1800 rear wheel

- Overloading and/or under-inflation may lead to loss of tire pressure

- Program involves 1,700 MC tires worldwide sold in 2011 and 2012 primarily in U.S.

FORT MILL, SC--Jan. 21, 2013: Continental today announced a voluntary recall program involving approximately 1,700 motorcycle tires 180/60R16 M/C 74H ContiMotion. Market feedback indicates that under certain service conditions these tires may experience uneven wear, groove cracking and in some cases belt lift, which can lead to a loss of inflation pressure and a potential loss of control that could lead to an accident. These service conditions have been observed with Honda Gold Wing 1800 motorcycles rear tire fitment, particularly under conditions of overloading and/or under-inflation. Continental has not received any reports about accidents resulting from this condition.

The affected tires were sold in the replacement market in 2011 and 2012, primarily in the United States. Small quantities were also sold in other markets.

The tires are identified by the DOT serial numbers H60LJJE5110 through H60LJJE3811.

Continental started to notify the respective national safety authorities, such as the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) on January 18, 2013.

Continental is in communication with its motorcycle tire distributors and dealers to identify consumers who purchased affected tires. Identified tire owners will be promptly notified and informed about the details of the voluntary recall program.
