Editorial

2016 marks Michelin’s big comeback to MotoGP™ racing and features new products in several segments. Racing is an integral part of Michelin’s identity, and also serves as an extreme proving ground that allows the company to test future solutions with its partners, on racetracks and trails all over the world. With 360 MotoGP™ victories in 2016, Michelin is once more opening the doors of its R&D to the best pilots in the world. The decision to get involved in racing again is motivated by Michelin’s desire to keep making technological advances that are available to as many people as possible. The Power range was created to allow Michelin to share its passion for racing with its customers. From the Michelin Power SuperSport Evo range, approved for road use; to the Michelin Power Slick Evo, designed purely for the track; riders will find the right tyre to suit their needs.

Competition to serve innovation

From track to street, the synergy of expertise Dorna Sports, promoter and organizer of the MotoGP™ World Championship, which is sanctioned by the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM), has announced that Michelin will be the sole supplier of tyres to teams participating in the series from 2016.

MOTORSPORT HAS ALWAYS BEEN AN INTEGRAL PART OF MICHELIN’S DNA AND PHILOSOPHY. It’s the ideal laboratory for testing and validating new technologies under the most extreme conditions. The synergy between racing and hypersport is particularly relevant today. With 360 MotoGP™ wins from 1976 to 2008, 26 world titles, 15 World Endurance titles, 13 wins at the 24 Hours of Le Mans Moto, and 13 Bol d’Or victories, Michelin boasts an unrivalled racing record as well as cutting-edge expertise in the field of motorcycle tyres. Close collaboration between the R&D and motorsport teams gives them in-depth understanding of motorcycle performance thanks to the combination of testing under extreme conditions, the pooling of their experience and technical vocabulary, and regular meetings.

The 2015 season has been full of success� Italian Speed Championship Winner of six of the ten last races of the season, Michelin won the title for the first time since 2009 with Ivan Goï (Ducati). In 2015 Michelin showed fighting spirit and ensured a great show was put on for the title fight.

MOTOGP™ WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP FEATURES THE DISCIPLINE’S MOST TECHNOLOGICALLY SOPHISTICATED BIKES, THE POWER OUTPUT OF WHICH EXCEEDS 250HP. The level of performance they deliver both mechanically and dynamically is very high. The series also stars the world’s best riders and their efficiency is notably due to the confidence they have in their machines, particularly their tyres. The discipline consequently serves as an exceptional proving ground for the technological innovations of tomorrow.

FIM SuperMoto World Championship Michelin wins the SuperMoto world title once again in 2015 with T.Chareyre/TM (who also won with Michelin in 2014).

Having announced its official return to MotoGP™ racing in 2016, Michelin is gearing up for a new challenge in this premier motorcycle-racing event in which bikes deliver up to 250 hp. A continuously evolving showcase of advanced technology, MotoGP™ is set to adopt the 17-inch wheel size, which is the market standard for sports and road motorcycles. This will provide Michelin with the opportunity to develop new technologies that will be applied to mass-produced tyres in the near future.

Trial World Championship Already crowned ‘Indoor Trial World Champion’ for 2015 for the 9th year running, Toni Bou and Michelin eagerly await the results of the ‘Outdoor Trial World Championship’ for 2015.

THE ROLLOUT OF THESE SIX NEW HYPERSPORT AND TRACK TYRES BEARS TESTIMONY TO MICHELIN’S PASSION FOR SPORTS, AND COMMITMENT TO ENSURING THAT ALL BIKERS REAP THE BENEFITS.

INNOVATION IS MICHELIN’S DRIVING FORCE

INNOVATION IS MICHELIN’S DRIVING FORCE. ONE OF THE FRENCH TYRE MANUFACTURER’S OBJECTIVES IS TO GET NEW TECHNOLOGIES TO THE MARKET EVEN FASTER IN ORDER TO MEET CUSTOMERS’ NEEDS EVEN MORE QUICKLY.� WHENEVER A TECHNOLOGY EMPLOYED IN MOTORSPORT IS CONSIDERED USEFUL FOR ALL MOTORCYCLISTS, IT IS PUT THROUGH ITS PACES IN MOTORSPORT FOR A PERIOD OF ONE OR TWO YEARS BEFORE ENTERING THE DEVELOPMENT PHASE.

Thanks to the MICHELIN Total Performance strategy, which constantly and simultaneously pushes the envelope in all the areas that influence tyre performance, Michelin will provide riders with increasingly higher levels of grip in both dry and wet conditions.

MICHELIN Adaptive Casing Technology

Adaptive Casing Technology ensures varying tyre rigidity at different angles of lean. The tyre switches gradually from a flexible crown for straight-line precision to increasingly rigid shoulders depending on lean angle for optimised cornering stability.

Successfully accomplishes two conflicting ideals: wear resistance in the centre of the tread, and grip on the shoulders. SOFT

MICHELIN Dual Angle Technology

A revolutionary new architecture for motorcycle tyres, which provides the necessary strength & stability for heavier bikes with luggage and a pillion AND comfort for long journeys. 2AT exceptionally combines elements of both radial and bias construction, providing the best compromise: Bias for its ability to withstand extra weight and Radial for the pleasure of riding.

NST : Near Slick Technology

With less than 5% sea to land ratio (the ratio of grooves as a percentage of the tread surface area) it is close to a race slick. The amount of rubber in contact with the ground is important for grip, allowing lean angles of up to 60°. Dry Grip

ADT : Amplified Density Technology

A highly dense, more rigid tyre casing, which helps deliver excellent feedback and handling. Aramid tread plies on the rear tyre resist centrifugal growth, reduce weight and provide excellent stability. + X SIPE TECHNOLOGY +

The latest X-Sipe Technology

Patented sipes and integrated water reservoirs allow MICHELIN X-Sipe Technology+ (XST+) to deliver exceptional grip on wet road. MICHELIN XST + includes transverse sipes to improve wet braking and chamfers added to the sipe edges to help prevent abnormal wear in extreme conditions. The transverse sipes allow the front tyre to break the surface film of water and ensure outstanding braking performance on wet roads. Longevity + Wet Grip

SRT : Silica Rain Technology

Silica Rain Technology improves grip in cooler temperatures and on wet roads, without compromising tread life. Wet and Cold Grip

XST : X Sipe Technology PST : Progressive Sipe Technology

The MICHELIN XST featured on Michelin motorcycle tyres delivers enhanced grip on wet roads thanks to the technology’s patented sipes and reservoirs which increase the tyre’s water clearance capacity. In the case of scooter tyres, a gradual increase in the number of full depth sipes as the vehicle leans into a corner allows the tyre to break through the surface film of water. Wet grip

pole-winner on the race track and on the street! Grip on dry and wet roads Thanks to MICHELIN 2CT technology at the front and MICHELIN 2CT+ at the rear, it offers outstanding grip on both dry (3) and wet roads.

On-track performance The adaptable ‘low pressure’ casing of MICHELIN Power SuperSport Evo tyres ensures a bigger contact patch for added grip and higher performance on race tracks.

ADAPTABLE LOW PRESSURE CASING The contact patch is up to 52% bigger* at lower pressures for use on race tracks.

MICHELIN ACT The rigidity of the casing differs as a function of the angle of lean.The more flexible crown ensures straight-line stability while the casing becomes increasingly rigid towards the shoulders for optimum handling when cornering.

+ Is the MICHELIN Power SuperSport Evo a road tyre or a mixed use (road/track) tyre? Is it a racing / track days tyre?

+ Can the MICHELIN Power SuperSport Evo tyre be fitted on all types of motorcycles, regardless of load index and speed rating?

Developed for riders with a sporty driving style, it is just as effective on the road as for occasional track use. Tyre pressure can be reduced when riding on the track to increase the size of the contact patch and thus improve grip. The balance between grip and longevity makes this an excellent tyre for occasional racing.

The entyre MICHELIN Power SuperSport Evo range has been approved for use at speeds of up to 190 mph. As a result, these tyres can be fitted to any motorcycle whose original tyres are of the same size as those available in the range. For more information contact the 2 Wheel Technical department on 0845 366 1589.disponibles.

+ Can two different tyre models be mounted on the same bike?

For optimum performance, Michelin recommends using tyres from the same range. It is nonetheless possible to fit a MICHELIN Pilot Power 3 tyre at the front and a MICHELIN Power SuperSport Evo tyre at the rear. What’s important is to always have the tyre that performs better on wet surfaces on the front. It is similarly possible to fit a MICHELIN Power SuperSport tyre at the front and a MICHELIN Power Cup tyre at the rear wheel for increased grip. For more information contact the 2 Wheel Technical department on 0845 366 1589.MICHELIN Power Cup Evo (AR).

* Up to 52% larger contact patch at the rear. For example, with a bike whose cold pressure is adjusted from 2.9 Bar to 1.5 Bar for the rear, exclusively for track use. Michelin recommends cold pressure of 2.1 Bar at the front and 1.7 bar at the rear (or 1.5 bar if used with tyre warmers) for the MICHELIN Power SuperSport Evo on the track.

MORE DETAILS MICHELIN XST+ TECHNOLOGY

Track & road

Feel more secure, whatever the road conditions*.

Michelin is the only manufacturer of XST siping technology which has been further enhanced by the introduction of new XST+.

CHAMFERED EDGES

Chamfers added to the sipe edges help prevent abnormal wear in extreme conditions and under heavy braking.

ARIABLE SEA-TO-LAND RATIO

The variable sea-to-land ratio ensures optimum grip whatever the angle of lean. It also increases the tyre’s water clearance capacity.

BRAKING ON WET ROADS

The braking distance of the MICHELIN Pilot Road 4 tyre is shorter than that of all rival tyres in its segment. The braking distance of the new MICHELIN Pilot Road 4 tyre is 17% shorter in the wet than that of its best-performing rival and 24% shorter on slippery surfaces such as painted road markings. The result is a safer, more reassuring ride.

* Except on snow and ice and other extreme conditions. ** Braking distance tests on wet surfaces and on very slippery wet surfaces carried out in July 2013 by Dekra. Tests compared the new MICHELIN Pilot Road 4 tyre with the DUNLOP Sportmax Roadsmart II, the METZELER Roadtec Z8 Interact M/O, the PIRELLI Angel GT Gran Tourismo and the BRIDGESTONE Battlax Sport Touring T30F. Sizes: 120/70 R 17 M/C 58W (front) and 180/55 ZR17 M/C 73W (rear). *** In-house tests carried out in 2013

+ Why isn’t MICHELIN XST+ used for the rear tyre?

+ Is the MICHELIN Pilot Road 4 tyre an M+S tyre?

The front tyre is exposed to specialised wear because it has to absorb a high amount of energy under braking. The chamfered edges which differentiate MICHELIN XST from MICHELIN XST+ are designed to help prevent abnormal sipe wear. The influence of braking does not affect the rear tyre in the same manner. For more information contact the 2 Wheel Technical department on 0845 366 1589.

The MICHELIN Pilot Road 4 was not developed for use on snow or ice. It can be used in cold temperatures as low as -5°C in dry conditions. For more information contact the2 Wheel Technical department on 0845 366 1589.

+ The Michelin tyre guide recommends the standard MICHELIN Pilot Road 4 tyre for my motorbike. However, is the MICHELIN Pilot Road 4 tyre suitable for weekend trips complete with luggage, a passenger, and accessories?

Even when carrying heavy loads, the standard version should be fitted because it was developed for optimum performance on your motorcycle.For more information contact the 2 Wheel Technical department on 0845 366 1589.

These two ranges were designed for two different zzs: The MICHELIN Pilot Road 4 Trail tyre is designed entyrely for road use, whereas the MICHELIN Anakee III tyre is designed for 10% off-road usage. The MICHELIN Pilot Road 4 tyre delivers extra grip and enhanced handling on wet roads. The MICHELIN Anakee III combines greater riding enjoyment with the necessary stability for off-road use.

UTILITY OF THE BEVELLED GROOVE EDGES

A proportion of the pattern’s groove edges are bevelled, forming ‘scoops’ which facilitate the clearance of mud and grit that can be encountered on non-sealed roads. As the tyre wears, the amount of rubber in contact with the ground increases, providing added grip, thanks to the angled surface of these ‘scoops’.

In the course of the tyre’s working life, the way these 3D serrations wear enables the amount of rubber in contact with the ground to remain beneficial to grip in dry weather, while the additional edges contribute to grip on wet roads.

* Except on snow and ice and other extreme conditions.

in brief

+ CAN THE MICHELIN ANAKEE WILD TYRE BE MIXED WITH THE MICHELIN ANAKEE III TYRE?

› Stability and comfort on the road thanks to Radial technology available for the first time on a knobby tyre › Excellent longevity › On/off traction, handling, and precise steering thanks to an innovative tread pattern › Resistance to damage and high temperatures thanks to optimized tread depth and a new compound�

No, these two 2 ranges can’t be mixed since they were developed for very different riding conditions.

IS THERE A SPECIFIC TYRE PRESSURE FOR OFF-ROAD USE?

No, Michelin recommends using regular tyre pressure. Furthermore, BMWdoesn’t have any on the R1200 GS models for example.

AN INVALUABLE ASSET FOR A SUCCESSFUL ADVENTURE RAID With its combined compounds and innovative tread inspired by the winner of the Dakar Rally, the MICHELIN Desert Race, the MICHELIN Anakee Wild lasts longer so you can finish your adventure raid with the same set of tyres. SUPERIOR TRACTION ON SOFT TERRAIN The alignment of the scoop-shaped, staggered tread blocks offer stability and traction on soft terrain and in all conditions.

in brief

› For daily trips, reliable even on wet roads. › Lasts 35% longer than the MICHELIN Pilot Sporty* › Excellent handling and everyday driving pleasure › A design inspired by our sport motorcycles

Front and rear tyres have virtually opposite demands placed on them, in that the front tyre has to withstand heavy braking forces, and the rear tyre has to withstand hard acceleration forces. Tread pattern designs must take these forces into account in order to perform well and wear evenly. Careful design of our tyres has enabled us to design a tread pattern that is adapted to these differing demands by simply reversing the direction of rotation. For more information contact the 2 Wheel Technical department on 0845 366 1589.

Optimal safety on wet road surfaces

The puncture resistant tyre

michelin pst Technology MICHELIN’s Progressive Sipe Technology (PST) helps prevent sliding on wet roads and slippery surfaces.

in brief

A LARGE COVERAGE An extensive range that covers the majority of the market’s 125cc and bigger engined scooters, including big-wheeled models.

› Outstanding long tyre life › Grip even in wet conditions Resistant to puncturing Thanks to the combination of MICHELIN Overlap Technology, three reinforcing plies and a layer of rubber beneath the tread, the MICHELIN City Pro tyre is extremely robust in order to significantly reduce the risk of puncture. During an extreme test involving 48 motorbikes totally 248,000 miles in the toughest road conditions, only four punctures were reported*. The improved sealing thanks to the layer of rubber on the inside of the tyre limits rubbing of the inner tube. This in turn minimises the risk of pressure loss.

Grip on wet roads Thanks to its central circumferential groove, tread pattern and variable sea-to-land ratio depending on the motorcycle’s angle of lean (from 30% at the centre to 35% along the shoulders), the MICHELIN CITY Pro tyre’s water clearance capacity has been maximised. The result is enhanced grip on dry, wet and slippery roads alike.

+ CAN MICHELIN CITY GRIP WINTER TYRES BE USED IN SUMMER?

Yes. Michelin developed the MICHELIN City Grip Winter tyre for people who travel all-year round and who do not want to change their tyres as a result of the season. The brief for the tyre called for outstanding grip on wet roads and slush, as well as in cold weather and in dry conditions. For more information contact the 2 Wheel Technical department on 0845 366 1589.

Thermo-active rubber One of the key characteristics of thermo-active rubber is that it does not become hard at temperatures below freezing point, down to -10°C. It consequently continues to ensure grip in wintry conditions (on cold and wet roads) when a tyre made with ‘normal’ rubber would lose its grip potential.

XST+ SIPES TECHNOLOGY Brakes 4m shorter than the MICHELIN POWER PURE SC on wet roads, and even better on slippery surfaces thanks to XST+ technology.

A tread pattern designed for wintry conditions • The sipes break through the surface water gripping in wet conditions in winter and summer alike. • The grooves clear water towards the shoulders. The pattern’s land-to-sea ratio varies depending on use: fewer grooves along the shoulders for extra grip on dry roads, plus significant grooving of the crown for grip in wet conditions and on snow

2CT TECHNOLOGY Thanks to Michelin’s 2CT technology, the tyre lasts 10% longer than the MICHELIN Power Pure SC Radial so you keep your tyres longer and reduce total cost of ownership. NEW SILICA-BASED COMPOUND Boasting a new all-silica compound, it offers excellent grip even in cold, wet and difficult conditions and on all types of road surfaces, including white lines and pedestrian crossings.

M+S marking M+S tyres (Mud and Snow) are specially designed to enhance performance on mud, snow and slush. The marking indicates that the tyre is deemed as a ‘snow’ tyre according to European rulings.

For soft and extremely slippery ground

THE tyre choice� for all types of terrain

The choice of Enduro World Champions Pierre-Alexandre Renet Ideal for wintry conditions and early season races, its open tread pattern and tall tread blocks efficiently clear out mud and deliver outstanding cornering grip.

Extremely versatile for use on all terrains: soft, sandy, mixed or hard ground. Excellent sturdiness and wear resistance, plus improved* grip on hard-packed ground thanks to its taller reinforced tread blocks. Enhanced ride comfort due to improved* shock absorption (over roots, stones, etc.) and better stability under braking, allowing harder braking. The choice of Enduro World Champions Pierre-Alexandre Renet (2014 E2 champion) and Matthew Phillips (2013 EJ champion).

The table below defines the Speed Index commonly applicable to our tyres. The Speed Index defines the maximum speed at which any tyre, displaying this index, is approved. This level of definition is unambiguous when it comes to bounded speed index, it is definitive for example (J = 100, S = 180, H = 210, …….). This is not the case for the (W) speed index which is not bounded. In this case, it is the tyre manufacturer’s responsibility to ensure a maximum speed for the tyre which corresponds at least to the maximum speed of the motorcycle on which the tyre can be mounted.

It is important to know for each (W) rated tyre its actual approved maximum speed, and consequently whether to recommend it or not on motorcycles.

Structure radial / bias The carcass of a Bias tyre consists of 2 or more diagonally orientated carcass plies. The overlap angle of these plies can be changed to give differing properties to the finished tyre. The structure is uniform and the tyre crown area has similar properties to the sidewalls, because of this the sidewalls tend to be very stiff.

radial structure In a radial structure the carcass ply is placed radially.

NEW DENOMINATION

A 130/70-19 Cross Competition MICHELIN S12XC therefore corresponds to a 110/90-19 MICHELIN StarCross 5 size.

The width of Motocross tyres is measured at the level of the base of the tread blocks , while for Enduro tyres, it is measured by the overall dimension, at the widest point which is the top of the tread blocks.

technical data

In a radial structure the carcass ply is placed radially, running from bead area to bead area at an angle of 90 degrees. The crown area can be reinforced with bracing plies. The structure is therefore not uniform, and the crown area and sidewall area can then be given different properties, allowing the sidewalls to be more flexible.

different performances In contact with the ground, thanks to more flexible sidewalls, a radial tyre crown grips the road. Its footprint is not as long as that of a bias tyre but wider, offering more grip at a sharper angle when taking bends. Pressure in the radial tyre contact area is more evenly distributed which ultimately means more uniform wear. Thanks once again to its flexible sidewalls, a radial tyre offers greater ride comfort at high speed by cushioning irregularities in the road surface. A bias tyre, however, is better able to withstand a heavy load as its sidewalls are more rigid. At high speed, the profile of a bias tyre becomes deformed, to the extent that it affects behavior. A radial tyre, however, remains stable thanks to its crown belt with a continuous integrated cable around the circumference. As we have seen, the bias structure is suitable for vehicles traveling at a moderate speed with small or mediumsized engines. The radial structure becomes a necessity for more powerful vehicles with extremely rigid chassis and ones used for sport. It enables speeds in excess of 150 mph to be reached.

The Anti Static Strip

RUBBER BREAKDOWN IN THE COLD

A unique feature necessary on a tread

THE FUNDAMENTALS All rubber compounds used in tyres have performance windows that fall within a range of temperatures.

• A vehicle is charged with static electricity and must be able to discharge this electricity into the ground. Since the tyre is the only point of contact between the vehicle and the ground, there is a regulation in this respect governing the minimum level of conductivity of tyres. • When carbon black is used as a reinforcement filler,tyres normally have an acceptable level of conductivity. • When other reinforcement fillers are used, such as silica, the level of conductivity may decrease. It then becomes necessary to apply design features to restore conductivity to an acceptable level. • hence the “zebrure” on the tread: this is a fine slice of rubber, the conductivity of which is such that it will enable the vehicle to discharge its static electricity into the ground.

• There is a low temperature threshold from which the rubber loses elasticity and becomes brittle. This can be as low as -55 degrees C for some rubber compounds. This is called the breaking point . • There is also a high temperature threshold from which the rubber becomes pasty/ viscous. This is generally above 200 degrees C. It is called the reversion point. For the vast majority of tyres of all types, these thermal limits are not an impediment to the normal use of our tyres.

SUPERSPoRT AND CoMPETITIoN TyreS In competition and hypersport tyres, the very high temperatures encountered (related to the very high levels of grip) require a specific blend of tyre compounds to withstand them. One consequence of this is that these soft compound tyres have a break point around 0 degrees C. Handling these tyres at this temperature or lower may result in the tread or other area of rubber on the tyre literally breaking.Care must therefore be taken to store the tyres in appropriate conditions which avoid these temperatures.

The three main THREATS TO the the tyre are physical, environmental and human.

If this occurs, the tyres should not be handled at all.

• They are usually related to the inflation pressure, damage, the level of wear of the tread, weather conditions, maintenance, load conditions and speed, ... etc.. • With so many parameters involved, it is impossible to • accurately predict the lifespan of a tyre • Physical • Age • Poor conditions of storage. • Wear and damage (punctures, cuts, impacts, cracking/ crazing of the tread/sidewall rubber, lumps and bulges, etc). • Environmental hazards • Extreme temperature. • Moisture • Ozone • Solvents, Hydrocarbons • Fuel • Chemicals • Human • Does not perform routine tyre checks for wear or damage. • Does not maintain proper tyre pressure (under inflation or over inflation) • Re-inflates a tyre that has run flat or seriously under-inflated. • Does not change a tyre before it reaches the legal wear limit. • Neglecting a change in behaviour of the bike, loss of pressure, vibration, noise,....

THREATS TO the tyre

Does not inspect a tyre after a severe impact Has an aggressive riding style Uses tyres of different sizes or types Does not replace the valve when replacing a tubeless tyre Repairs a tyre themselves rather than go to a tyre specialist Temporary repairs that become a permanent solution Mount a tyre on a wheel that is damaged or distorted Does not store tyres correctly

Recommandations

Never handle te tyre at a temperature below 5°c in order to prevent damage to the tyre. Recommandations

Before fitting and unfitting, the tyre should have been stored for at least 24h at a temperature greater than 10°c

Recommandations

Never handle the tyre at a temperature below -10°c in order to prevent damage to the tyre.

Tyre AGE AND PERFORMANCE Each motorcycle is tested and designed to perform to a standard set by the manaufacturer. This is why it is important to follow the recommendations of the manufacturer.

•  The tyre sizes front and rear recommended by the bike manufacturer. •  The speed and load capabilities of the tyres, which should be equal to or greater than the minimum recommendation of the manufacturer. •  The tyre construction (radial or bias) front and rear, which should only be mixed under the direction of the manufacturer, and if mixed must have the radial tyre fitted to the rear. •  It is not recommended to fit different brands of tyre on the same machine, and definately not if they are of different types such as a sports tyre with a touring tyre. •  Each manufacturer tests and validates the tyre dimension and type suitable for the front and rear of their machine, and these are different for each manufacturer.

Excessive ageing of a tyre may affect its performance and even its service suitability. A correlation should not be made between the age of a tyre and its ageing. The ageing of a tyre depends solely on the conditions in which it has been stored and the way it has been used. For example, a new tyre, parked or stored next to a transformer can incur irreversible damage to the sidewalls (cracking) within a few days: this will affect its performance and its ability to maintain pressure.

CHECKING Tyre FoR WEAR IF THE LEGAL oR TECHNICAL WEAR LIMIT HAS BEEN REACHED AT oNE PoINT oN THE TREAD, THE Tyre MUST BE REPLACED

DAMP: Store tyres in a cool, dry room with natural ventilation to avoid condensation. If outside, cover them with an opaque, waterproof tarpaulin. LIGHT: Protect tyres from UV rays (sunlight and artificial light). TEMPERATURE: It must be below 35°C. Avoid direct contact with pipes and radiators. ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT, SOLVE NTS, HYDROCARBONS, FLAMMABLE SUBSTANCES, CHEMICALS: Never store tyresin a room where this equipment or these products are present. STOCK ROTATION: First in, first out storage of tyres should be organised. SHORT-TERM STORAGE (<4 weeks): Stack tyres on pallets, preferably lying flat. Stacks should not exceed 1.20m (4 feet) in height. After 4 weeks, the stacks should be reformed with tyres piled up in reverse order. When fitted onto wheels, tyres should be inflated when stored and kept in a vertical position or in only one layer on shelves. LONG-TERM STORAGE: Store tyres vertically on shelves at least 10cm (4 inches) from the floor. To prevent deformation, rotate slightly once a month.

Damp, temperature, light and certain chemicals or electrical equipment are known factors affecting ageing: it is there for essential that products are stored correctly.

The legal limit is the one laid down by the law of the country. The technological limit is the one evidenced by the wear indicator (0.8 mm on MICHELIN tyres). The legal limit, if there is one, takes precedence over the technological limit. Since it is normally stricter than the technological limit (e.g.: germany = 1.6 mm, france/uK/ sa = 1.0 mm). technical data

Storage advice

DURATIoN oF USE useful Tyres are made of materials and components many of which are based on rubber.Rubber properties are essential to its correct functioning. These properties change over time and depend on many factors which the tyre is subjected throughout its life: climate, storage conditions, conditions of use load, speed, pressure, ...).

TIPS FOR YOUR MOTORCYCLE CUSTOMERS Factors which influence ageing are so varied that it is impossible to accurately predict the life of a tyre. it is therefore recommended to: Have your motorcycle/ scooter tyres inspected frequently by a qualified professional in addition to your own regular checks.F914 After 5 years of use, have tyres inspected annually After 10 years of use, replace tyres with new ones as a precautionary measure, even if their condition appears satisfactory and even if they have not reached the legal wear limit. This precaution should also be applied to inner tubes and to rubber-based accessories (e.g. rim tape), with the exception of accessories where another age recommendation is specifi ed by the manufacturer (e.g. Bib Mousse).

Levering

• Bib Mousses should not be stored regularly at temperatures over 30 degrees C, and temperatures above 40 degrees C should be avoided all together. • MICHELIN Bib Mousses are designed for off road competition use fitted to Michelin tyres. The fitting of Bib Mousse in other tyre brands is not recommended. • Not designed for use on the public highway (NHS). The maximum speed for a tyre with a Bib Mousse fitted is 80 mph. • The date of first use of the Bib Mousse should be no later than 18 months from manufacture. • The Bib Mousse should be used within 6 months of first fitting.

Removing the tyre

Operating mode : Dismounting a Bibmousse

For tubeless tyre :

For a tube type tyre :

• • • • •

• The rim must be clean and in good condition • For safety reasons, it is recommended to use a new inner tube • Observe the rolling direction indicated by an arrow on one side • Lubricate the beads on both sides • Perform the mounting using suitable levers and finishing at the valve location. • Slowly inflate to 3.5 bar (51 psi) while ensuring the proper centreing of the tyre on the wheel. • Completely deflate the tyre in order to eliminate air pockets or correct a possible wrong position of the tube. • Inflate to the recommended pressure and fit the valve cap.

The rim must be clean and in good condition. Make sure it is appropriate to tubeless tyres. Valve replacement is recommended. Lubricate all the inner part. Observe the rolling direction indicated by an arrow on one side • Perform bead to rim mounting using suitable levers and finishing at the location of the valve. Inflate without the valve core, and without interruption, until the the beads are well seated on the rim. • Continue inflation up to 3.5 bar (51 psi) for a proper bead seating. • Replace the valve core, inflate to the recommended pressure and fit the valve cap.

Removal

Unscrew the valve and allow the tyre to deflate completely

Break the seal between the tyre beads and the rim and lubricate the rim and beads.

Remove the tyre using two tyre levers.

• Place the wheel on the fitting un. • Unseat the first bead and lubricate abundantly. • Put 3 levers in position, 10 cm apart.Remove the bead by inclining the 3 levers one after the other. Keep only one lever, straighten it then turn the tyre on the wheel to completely remove the bead.

• Finish removing the tyre by hooking the 2nd bead with a lever. • Extract the Bib Mousse insert from the tyre.

Operating mode : Mounting a BibMousse • The rim must be in good condition. Check the spokes to prevent abnormal friction between the Bib Mousse and wheel. • Position a rim well strip inside the wheel or, failing this, a piece of adhesive tape covering the spoke nuts. • Place the wheel on the fitting unit. • Place the Bib Mousse inside the tyre (Avoid getting the gel on the tyre beads => Risk of rotation on the rim). • If necessary apply vertical pressure on the tyre to prise the beads apart. • Position the Bib Mousse inside the tyre. • Lubricate the first tyre bead and the part of the Bib Mousse • that will be in contact with the rim (a Michelin liquid lubricant should be used). • Make sure there is no valve on the rim. • Put the first bead onto the rim. Start by positioning it in the • rim well then use a fitting lever if necessary. Insert the Bib Mousse as far as it will go into the rim well. • Lubricate the 2nd tyre bead. • First put the bead onto the rim using a fitting lever.

Immobilize this lever and then use a 2nd lever around 30 cm from the first to continue inserting the bead. Immobilize this 2nd lever then use a 3rd one to continue positioning of the bead, Etc… until the bead is fully in position. • To wedge the beads of the tyre correctly against the rim fl anges, it is recommended to infl ate it to approximately 3.5 bars using a rubber TL valve. The valve is fixed on the inflation connector and simply positioned over the valve.

Warm Up

Useful tips

•  Check tyre pressure every 2 weeks and when cold (a tyre that has not run for at least 2 hours or has run for less than 3 km at a reduced speed). •  Adhere to the pressure recommended by constructors. •  A tyre should never be deflated when hot. •  After checking the tyre pressures do not forget to replace the valve cap which in addition to the valve body, ensures an airtight seal. •  Inflation with nitrogen does not mean that frequent pressure checks are not to be made.

To give the best performance and optimal grip tyres need to be at the correct operating Warming up time refers to the time needed for the tyre to reach an internal temperature of 50°C to more than 100°C.

In all cases, adhere to the pressure recommended by constructors or manufacturers.

Tyre PRESSURE If a tyre is inflated when hot, the pressure must be adjusted in line with manufacturer recommendations. To be correct, you should be aware that the pressure may be around 0.3 bars higher than the recommended level when cold. Example: •  Pressure read when a tyre is hot = 2.6 bars •  Recommended pressure when cold = 2.5 bars •  The pressure required = 2.8 bars •  Add 0.2 bars Inflation with nitrogen does not mean that frequent pressure checks are not to be made. After checking the tyre pressures do not forget to replace the valve cap which in addition to the valve body, ensures an airtight seal. valve cap (A valve cap is essential to ensure a correct airtight seal. In fact, at high speed, the valve body can be pushed in by simple centrifugal force. This leads to a loss of pressure.)

These recommendations apply to tyres for use on the road On a track and for racing in general there are special recommendations for this type of use. (More info on page 16-17)

Useful tips for your motorcycle customers

Advise your customers to start all journeys at a moderate speed in order to give their tyres sufficient time to reach their optimum working temperature and therefore deliver better grip.

control Riding on under inflated tyres can cause premature wear, irreversible damage to the tyre and possibly sudden loss of air which can have catastrophic consequences.

Useful tips

When making visual checks pay particular attention to the tread area and the sidewalls. Look for unusual, excessive or uneven tread wear, foreign objects, bulges or deformation, signs of penetration, cracking of the rubber or any deteriation or damage.

technical data

If a check is made after use, it will be made on a hot tyre. Since pressure increases with the temperature, a tyre should never be deflated when hot.

Technical data

Verification and diagnosis of tyres to be repaired Before making a repair, the tyre systematically undergoes a careful inspection by the professional. In fact, a tyre that has been running flat or insufficiently inflated may have suffered irreversible damage and only an exhaustive verification of the inside of the tyre can diagnose whether or not the tyre can be reused. It is therefore essential to remove the tyre to properly ascertain its actual condition and the type of repair to be made.

HANDLING DIFFICULTIES

Handling difficulties

Load distribution has a significant impact on occurrence of vehicle handling difficulty The presence of added or modified accessories: Topbox, bags, streamlining, windshield, handles, seat, non-original wheels, etc.

HANDLING DIFFICULTIES are It is not always easy to determine the causes and origins of various handling problems. Handling problems may come from tyres (type of tyre, incorrect pressure) and/or a change to the vehicle (accessory, load, etc.). Tyres are not always the only cause.

The general condition of the motorcycle: •  Uniformity of spoked wheels, damaged wheels. •  Bearing wear. •  Fork: Alignment, seals, oil, etc... •  Steering column. •  Swingarm. •  Shock absorber. •  Damaged frame, engine mounting points….

WEAVING

It is a wavering movement, of variable extent occurring on straight lines or bends, starting at an average speed of around 140 kph (90 mph).

HANDLEBAR VIBRATION

It is a sharp sideways movement at the front (fork moves back and forth), it is intermittent and very fast, occurring particularly whilst accelerating. It is triggered by an external source such as a bump or join in the tar.

A SHIMMY

It is a sideways, continuous oscillation of the fork at low speed (<100 kph / 60 mph) whilst slowing down.

VIBRATION

It appears at the level of the fork / wheel assembly at speeds of around 90 to 130 kph (55 to 80 mph).
