    July 21, 2017 NHTSA Recall ID No.: 17V467000

    Wow, sounds like BMW is getting really sloppy on their compliance recently. First the reflector issue and now this.

    Or they really pissed off some nameless faceless Washington bureaucrat.

    With 50 years in this sport, I can't remember ever looking at an inscription on a WHEEL to tell me what size tire to install.

    Well, in the new age of tires, wheels and related....at least on the automotive side of things-
    Have a try at (a large supplier's store such as Firestone or Goodyear) purchasing tires that were not specified at the time of manufacture of the vehicle. Chances are that even on a direct brand replacement the facility will computer check as what the tire options were for that year....and they will not allow anything different.
    Perhaps this has become how the motorcycle industry has evolved

    Potentially 37 units affected, must have been able to track down the cause to know only 37 could have the issue with markings
