This just poped up on Brocks Face Book page;

My rear wheel is one on the affected list, as I would guess so is most everyone elses. But since my bike makes less than 450 HP, not too worried. The part about the tire and wheel exploding during bead mounting and the requirement to have it inside a cage during this process (who really does that? lol) kinda caught my attention.

So basically how I read all this is that every 6" rear wheel BST has ever sold, (except those sold in the last few weeks and made in 2012) are now for "recreational use" only. :butt

Thats BST own words, recreational use, lol. :fact

My guess is 600 lb PST (Pro Street Turbo) busa's making 500-650 hp seem to be the main people having problems.

Well my Dymags may look heavier, but at least I'm not having these issues :corn

I hope they are offering a refund to anyone that purchased for anything but recreational use...This should hit hard on BSTs bottom line and will leave an opening for dymag if they state theirs is ok
