Tyre warning

Note: When new tires are fitted, they should not be subjected to sudden acceleration, hard cornering, maximum power or braking for at least 100 miles/160 kilometres. Failure to do so may result in loss of control and serious injury. The 100 mile run-in is required to adjust to the feel of new tires versus the worn tires.


Danger: Only specially trained persons should mount tires. Improper

mounting can cause tire explosion and serious injury.
