Screwed buy the date code
Our new to us 02 1800 needed a new rear tire when we bought it. Lucky us, the P O threw in a new excedra with the bike . Only it turns out when I went to get it changed the mechanic
came out and says he can't get it mounted because the rubber is so hard. We checked the date code and lo and behold it come's up week 30 of 2010. This was a one of a pair of tires the PO said were purchased 4/16. The tire we took off was dated week 4 2014. If you order tires from Motorcycle Superstore as he says he did be sure to look at the dates when they are delivered . I just had to buy another new tire . I sure hope one of you buys our old wing soon because this one is causing me to BLEED MONEY!
