Post TIRE ALERT ! !!! Dunlop D408f tires

Saw it in another forum, not sure if it has been posted here.

Check your tires for cracks in the sidewall... if you have them, take it to the dealer to get them replaced under warranty.

Admin, I hope it is ok to post link. If not just remove it.

Whoa! That's just a little scary.

I must admit I check my tires regularly but mostly the tread for nails, screws etc. I will be inspecting the sidewalls much more carefully from now on.

I just traded the 09 RK for a 2012 Road Glide Ultra last week, have 600 miles on the bike. The D408F front tire is already starting to crack like this on the sidewall, left side. Will see what the dealer has to say about it tomorrow.
