The NHTSA states that Continental has announced a voluntary recall program involving approximately 1,700 180/60R16 M/C 74H ContiMotion motorcycle tires primarily used on Honda Gold Wings. Customers say that under certain 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. These conditions have been observed under conditions of overloading and/or under-inflation. There have been no reports of accidents resulting from this condition.
The affected tires were sold as replacements, primarily in the United States with a small quantity being sold in other markets in 2011 and 2012. The tires are identified by the DOT serial numbers H60LJJE5110 through H60LJJE3811. 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. For more information: continentaltire.custhelp.com .
