Note it says in tread area, not the sidewall, and from impact, not from being stored in a cold garage. If the tires had any chance of failing apart in below freezing tempsthey wouldn't be sold for liability issues or you'd have to sign waivers out the kazoo.
Did you read any of the related links posted by others regarding this cracking issue? The disclaimers are usually pretty vague and broad. What you posted also mentions "or deformation". You seem to have just ignored that part in your further note, but it is a vague kind of addition that lawyers love.

Deformation means?? To me it means it deformed because you whacked into something. This started talking about tires having massive destruction from being exposed to cold temps, at -50 perhaps.

The following sources disagree....

http://www.goodyear.com/en-US/tires/category/summer
http://www.popularmechanics.com/cars...summer-9647443
http://www.continental-tires.com/www.../summer-tires/

Most Major tire companies offer these(summer) compounds

And someone has asked for a motorcycle specific source...Please read the last paragraph on this page.

http://www.bridgestone.com/products/...ote/index.html
I read that last paragraph, and it's got me more concerned than ever. Now, it's only "low ambient temperatures" where the tires may fail. 50*F is a low ambient temperature for me.

That paragraph does not help your position, oldschool.

Exactly. Lawyers love that vague crap that can be interpreted any number of ways. The way the caution wording is, a tire could be deformed by anything, including, but not limited to, stacking it against something, leaning it against something, running it into something, leaving it on a bike with any weight still on it, etc. Tires typically flex and deform as they just roll along the road. They don't necessarily have to get whacked into anything. Their a$$ is covered.

Just bought Warp 9 Short Levers for the DR. Does anyone know where there any tips or instructions on how to put these rascals on or are they pretty much a exact replacement. Help

Thanks

Hi and welcome. Thanks for filling in your profile location.

Yeah, that's a little big. I'm not sure how Imgur works but on Smugmug I just drag the corner of the window smaller. As I drag, the pic gets smaller (in steps, not gradually); then I right click and copy. That url will be the smaller pic.

If you hit 'enter' after the end of a sentence, the pic will be under the text:

instead of next to it like this.

That IS a pretty freaking cool pic. I'd love to see a frozen lake right about now, and take the DR for a spin in the spring snow with some knobs on it.

Spacecoast has had pretty much NO winter this year. I don't think we've even had one frost. I guess it's good for the FL citrus industry though. I'll just have to save up some vacation time to travel north next winter to play in some snow. The surfing this spring has had some pretty darn good days though, and the fishing has been good. We even have a few days when the water is blue and clear, like in the Bahamas.
