I too have been searching to find a CT causing an accident, and the incident that Monk mentioned is the only one I've ever heard about. That account is pretty much exactly what I heard and read about.My 2 cents worth regarding a CT causing an accident. Like most of you guys, before I would give it a try, I had to do some research. Looking for a real world accident that was the result of using a CT. Back then I did find an example of a Honda Dealership that was spreading the word. They had changed a CT off an 1800 Goldwing. It was coming apart because it was not designed to be run on a motorcycle, so it was exceedingly dangerous ... blah, blah, blah.
Digging into this story I found it was a guy that rode into Arkansas from Texas. He was two up and with a group. On the trip he kept making remarks to his companions about how his bike was not handling right. At a gas stop it was suggested that he should check his air pressure in his rear tire because it looked a little low. Well not wanting to hold up the group, he kept going. Somewhere in Central Arkansas the rear tire started coming apart and had to be replaced. (I think I got this story mostly correct)
This could come across as a failure of a CT, but actually it was the failure of the rider to keep an eye on his tires. As it turned out, he had ridden the bike from Texas to Arkansas without air in it. This story alone convinced me I needed to make the change. It also convinced me to always have a good TPMS working that will give me my actual tire pressure while riding. :thumbup:
