Mick P: Tyre Recall (Dienstag 26. Juni 2007, 00:05)

Hi All

Dont know if this info is of any use to anyone but Michelin have issued a tyre recall on the following tyres for more info see link below

Michelin Pilot Power 2CT and
Michelin Pilot Power 120/70 ZR 17 (58W) front motorcycle tyres.

Hi Mick,

thanks for the info. We have the same recall here in Germany.

But as this tyre (Pilot Power) normally is for racetrack use only, it probably doesn´t concern Bulldog riders..Although I remember someone who had it on his dog at least for a short time (who was it??)
As this tyre needs a lot of pre-heating to work properly, is very slippery in the wet and wears out a lot faster than expected, he got rid of it very soon..

Thanks anyway

Hi Mick + Axel :wave:
Waylander tried the PP on his Bulldog, but he had no fun for a long time, 'cause the PP rubbered down in few thousands km's.
So now he is driving the PR again and I think it's quite allright.
On faster bikes the PP is a very good pneu, but if there is a bike with lower hp but more Nm's the PP is loosing! :twisted: :twisted:

Axel, the PP is heating very quickly for maybe 10 Km's, and so he don't need pre-heating on german dry streets!
Dajana had a PP on the golden ZR-7. The PP is on dry roads like chewing-gum on the boots! But on rainy streets he looses against the PR, of course same in winter! :twisted:

I hope we will see us again soon! :roll:

Best regards :wave:
