WARNING: TIRE PRESSURE

Tire Pressure: It is critical that tire pressure is checked prior to EVERY ride. Under-inflated tires provide less protection against road hazards (pot holes, curbs, debris, wheelies etc.) which can lead to damage and/or catastrophic failure of the wheel that could lead to a crash, serious injury, or even death. Refer to the tire manufacturer for appropriate tire pressure. Neither Blackstone Tek (PTY) Ltd nor Brock’s Performance will be responsible for wheel damage associated with improperly inflated tires.

 

WARNING: STATIC LOAD RATING

Static Load Rating: BST has derived their load specification from experience in the field of motorcycle physics. The load rating printed on the wheel sticker will reflect the maximum static load/weight (listed in Kilograms – example shown below) that is permitted on any specific wheel so as not to exceed the critical loads during the dynamic situation of riding the motorcycle. It is imperative that you are aware of the load rating and do not exceed it. For more information regarding the calculation of total static weight visit: https://blog.brocksperformance.com/bst-wheel-load-rating-information/.

WARNING: LOW-PROFILE TIRES

Low-Profile Tires: The use of low-profile/short sidewall tires with BST wheels is not recommended. Low-profile tires increase the likelihood of damage to the rim due to the road hazards. Low-profile tires have a decreased sidewall (aspect ratio) which affects the tire’s ability to absorb bumps, ruts, objects, potholes, wheelies etc. Neither Blackstone Tek (PTY) Ltd nor Brock’s Performance will be responsible for damages associated with the use of low-profile tires. Low-profile tires are generally defined by an aspect ratio of 60 or less.

 

WARNING: DO NOT ALTER WHEELS

BST strictly forbids the use of its carbon fiber wheels for fitment applications other than stated for in the owner’s manual. For a complete list of fitment application by bike call Brock’s Performance at 937-912-0054. Failure to comply with this warning could result in premature or catastrophic wheel failure and may result in SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH.

 

WARNING: MISUSE/MISAPPLICATION

Application/Misuse: All BST carbon fiber wheels are designed for a specific purpose and are labeled with load ratings on each wheel. Consult with an authorized agent for specific fitment and application. Utilizing BST wheels in any form outside of their intended use constitutes misuse of the product and can cause SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH. BST wheels are designed and manufactured for street use and carry DOT approval. Use in extreme sports including, but not limited to, modified motorcycles in excess of 450 hp, jet or rocket powered applications, stunt riding, drag racing, land speed racing or any other extreme use, are not recommended and are done so at the owner’s/rider’s own risk.

 

WARNING: TIRE MOUNTING IS DANGEROUS

Tire Mounting Instructions: Only skilled personnel using proper tools and procedures should perform tire mounting. Failure to follow safe mounting procedures could cause faulty positioning of the tire and cause the assembly to burst with explosive force sufficient to cause SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH. Clean rim and lubricate beads with an approved rubber lubricant such as Ru-Glyde. When using a tire machine, always follow manufacturer’s safety instructions. Always use a clip on chuck, an in-line valve with a pressure gauge or adjustable regulator, and remote inflation/deflation device. Have enough air hose to stay out of the trajectory and wear eye protection. For tire mounting instruction video visit: https://blog.brocksperformance.com/instructions/.

 

WARNING: BALANCING BST WHEELS

It is very important to balance motorcycle wheels. Wheel wobbles are related to wheel balance in some cases. A properly balanced wheel makes the small shakes go away, and the rider will feel more secure at speed. An unbalanced wheel may lead to uneven tire wear and/or a crash. BST recommends having your wheels dynamically balanced by a local dealer or tire professional for accurate results. Some of our customers have used Dyna Beads, however the long term effects of the ceramic beads against carbon fiber have not been thoroughly tested and may void the factory warranty.
