    2023

    Week 51 – Dunlop – Motorcycle tyre Sportmax Roadsmart III. Production dates: 13.11.2023-26.11.2023 & 21.08.2023-10.09.2023. A manufacturing defect could lead to a tread separation. This could lead to the loss of control over the motorcycle, increasing the risk of an accident

    Note: this only affects French Dunlops made by Goodyear for Europe. Should not affect those made by Sumitomo for the rest of the world.

    I tried the 3s a few years ago on my XR - not a fan.

    Might have been down to the stiff sidewalls and not playing around with lower pressures, but when I returned from a European trip- i took them off early.

    Had a set of Roadsmart lV's on mine...rear was good, front was rubbish, cupped badly after just 3k km.. had no confidence pushing it into a corner.

    Now have Cntinental Road Attack 3's on....totally transofrmed the bike...very confidence inspiring.
