That had me scrambling.  I just installed new Conti ClassicAttacks on the Ducati. Iím happy they arenít on the list. Iím guessing Continental wouldnít send a tech to my house to deal with that @#$&* rear wheel installation, not to mention jamming my fat little fingers into the tires while installing tubes.

The Conti Scoot (scooter tires) are what I've been running on the AeroLario.. and they are being recalled, too. What I was supposed to do is take them to one of two "dealers" near me. Well..over an hour one way.. but all was ok until I said Moto Guzzi. Neither would work on a Guzzi wheel. (!!) It's just a freekin wheel.. :rolleyes: :rolleyes:
Conti service rep said to buy some competitor's tires and install them myself. Send them copies of my original receipt and the receipt for the new ones, and they would send UPS to pick up the recalled tires. Did that. Once they have the recalled tires in hand, they will reimburse me the original price.

I think once they bulked at Moto Guzzi I would have said sorry I meant these were off a Honda.

I called yesterday.  Told to go to a local dealer,  any dealer that sells tires and installation, leave bike, have them remove and re-install a comparable set of tires. Have the Dealer return tires, bill for exchange and shipping.

What is "comparable tires".  I have about 1,000 miles the Conti Go's.  I like them.  The do what I need in a set of tires and the type of riding I primarily do.   

I am think about just ignoring the recall and ride.  Keeping an eye on possible failures.  It would be interesting to see the actual number of reported failures versus the number of tires manufactured.
