Proposed Collection; Comment Request for Form 990-N, 79094-79095 [2016-27097]

Download as PDF 79094 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 218 / Thursday, November 10, 2016 / Notices (Mark on tires rated only for single load): Max load __kg (__lb) at __kPa (__psi) cold . . . asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES V. Summary of MNA’s Petition MNA described the subject noncompliance and stated its belief that the noncompliance is inconsequential as it relates to motor vehicle safety. In support of its petition, MNA submitted the following reasoning: (a) Installation—The subject tires provide sidewall markings that include the correct industry standard tire size identified as ‘‘180/55ZR17 M/C,’’ the service description identified as ‘‘(73W)’’ using an ISO load index and speed symbol, and the load range identified as Load Range ‘‘B.’’ This properly and precisely identifies the tire for correct installation. (b) Inflation Pressure—The correct application pressures for the front and rear positions are identified on the motorcycle vehicle placard as required by 49 CFR part 567 and in the owner’s manual, and these sources are referred to specifically in information published by NHTSA, motorcycle manufacturers, and tire manufacturers. The inflation pressures furnished by the motorcycle manufacturer via these two sources are the pressures that provide the load capacity and optimum ride and handling characteristics specific to the application. The sidewall marking is not cited as a source for the recommended operating inflation pressure. a. For example, NHTSA’s online ‘‘Motorcycle Safety Tips’’ specifically refers to the owner’s manual and vehicle placard: ‘‘Look in your motorcycle owner’s manual to find the right PSI (pounds per square inch) of air pressure for your tires. Some bike manufacturers also list this information on the bike itself. Common locations include the swing arm, front fork tubes, inside the trunk, and under the seat.’’ b. Additionally, the Motorcycle Industry Council Tire Guide explains, ‘‘Check the air pressure when the tires are cold. . .and adjust it according to your motorcycle owner’s manual or the tire information label on the chain guard, frame, or swingarm.’’ c. Similarly, Michelin’s Professional Motorcycle Tire Guide 2016 states: ‘‘Use the inflation pressure recommended by the motorcycle manufacturer . . . The proper inflation pressures for your motorcycle tires are shown in your motorcycle owner’s manual.’’ d. The applicable pressure is also a function of the maximum speed capability of the motorcycle, another reason that the proper source for tire inflation pressure is the motorcycle VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:46 Nov 09, 2016 Jkt 241001 vehicle placard or owner’s manual rather than the tire sidewall. e. Michelin’s Professional Motorcycle Tire Guide 2016 and the Motorcycle Industry Tire Guide both advise not to exceed the pressure marked on the sidewall when setting a usage pressure. However, the recommended pressure on the motorcycle vehicle placard and the motorcycle owner’s manual conforming to 49 CFR 571.120 will never exceed the sidewall pressure for a properly fitted tire as described above in section ‘‘A’’ (Installation). The tire size, load index, speed symbol, and load range all provide for proper installation. Additionally, the sidewall pressure is not a ‘‘maximum’’ pressure. It is the pressure corresponding to the maximum load. For example, Michelin’s Professional Motorcycle Tire Guide 2016 advises that the pressure regulator be set at 60 psi for mounting motorcycle tires, and the Michelin motorcycle Web site FAQ section explains that up to 60 psi of pressure can be used to seat beads when mounting motorcycle tires and then adjusted to the recommended pressure found on the vehicle placard or owner’s manual. The sidewall pressure corresponding to the maximum load on the subject tire is 290 kPa or 42 psi. (c) Max Load Information—The maximum load value corresponding to the ISO load index on the tire is published in Michelin’s Professional Motorcycle Tire Guide 2016 available online, the Motorcycle Industry Council Tire Guide available online, as well as a number of retail sites. The ISO load index of ‘‘73’’ and the designation Load Range ‘‘B’’ that are present on the tire provide load description information, and along with the tire size they provide a clear cross reference to the cited publications that offer the load value in pounds if needed. Again, the tire size and load range provided are sufficient to assure the tire is appropriate for the motorcycle and corresponding pressure requirements as a function of speed capability are provided on the vehicle placard as well as the owner’s manual. (d) Other Markings—All other markings conform to the applicable regulations. (e) Performance—The subject tire meets all performance requirements of FMVSS No. 119. MNA concluded by expressing the belief that the subject noncompliance is inconsequential as it relates to motor vehicle safety, and that its petition to be exempted from providing notification of the noncompliance, as required by 49 U.S.C. 30118, and a remedy for the noncompliance, as required by 49 U.S.C. 30120, should be granted. PO 00000 Frm 00128 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 NHTSA notes that the statutory provisions (49 U.S.C. 30118(d) and 30120(h)) that permit manufacturers to file petitions for a determination of inconsequentiality allow NHTSA to exempt manufacturers only from the duties found in sections 30118 and 30120, respectively, to notify owners, purchasers, and dealers of a defect or noncompliance and to remedy the defect or noncompliance. Therefore, any decision on this petition only applies to the subject tires that MNA no longer controlled at the time it determined that the noncompliance existed. However, any decision on this petition does not relieve tire distributors and dealers of the prohibitions on the sale, offer for sale, or introduction or delivery for introduction into interstate commerce of the noncompliant tires under their control after MNA notified them that the subject noncompliance existed.
