    "WHAT COULD HAPPEN: Since the rim is not marked with the rim size and the DOT designation, a tire of the incorrect size may be installed on this rim, affecting the handling of the scoter and increasing the risk of a crash."

    Hmmmm. Seems like a high risk of installing the wrong sized tire.
    There's nothing like looking when you're trying to find something.

    Bear in mind the last recall on the 2017 R1200GS involved the saddlebags blocking the rear-side reflectors and you get an idea of how ludicrous these recalls seem to be, lately.

    Since I order tires based on specs in the owners manual and have them installed by the dealer I was not aware that my 2013 GT rims were marked. Learn something new every day...

    Yeah, next time I do my tires I'm going to have to look myself.

    It'd be more effective it you'd look at the rims instead.
