BST Warranty

Limited Warranty & Liability Disclaimer: 2 year on workmanship. Warranty not valid if hubs, components or bearings have been removed or tampered with.

BST wheels are hand crafted in an ISO certified facility. BST’s wheels are extensively tested and there is no doubt as to their structural integrity. We take pride in producing wheels that are as aesthetically perfect as possible. Occasionally a wheel may exhibit slight irregularities, e.g.: slight weave distortion, light or dark marks from resin flow & natural porosity resulting in small ‘fish eyes’.

BST does unconditionally warrant that its parts be free from any structural defects when new. BST does not make any warranties expressed or implied including without limitation, warrant to fitness, or merchantability of any of our products for particular use or purpose including extreme stress applications to which the products may be subjected to. BST disclaims any and all liability for consequential or incidental damages.

These irregularities are acceptable by the motor industry and BST and do not affect the structural integrity or performance in any way whatsoever. Should your wheel exhibit such irregularities, please consider it the signature of uniqueness – a product crafted by hand for your enjoyment.

Each wheel has a unique Part Number and Serial Number which are used for full traceability. Please quote these numbers on any enquiries to BST. Sending photos of the SN stickers and wheels are needed if a warranty claim is made.

Fitting of tyres: 
Tyres must only be fitted with an OEM approved mechanical tyre-fitting machine. Only an OEM approved and certified tyre changing machine operator may change the tyres on BST wheels. Never use a tyre lever or similar instrument that could make direct contact with the carbon fiber, as these will damage the wheel. Only the correct size tyres as prescribed by the OEM motorcycle manufacturer or if BST advised otherwise should be fitted to your BST wheels.

Replacing the valve if needed:

The valve is fitted at the BST factory. If you need to replace the valve you can only replace it with an original approved BST Blackstone TEK valve (available from your retail outlet through our Distributors). 

Use of tyre warmers on BST Wheels:
Make sure that the tyre warmers temperature is operating to the correct tyre warmer manufacturers temperature. Do not exceed OEM tyre manufactures temperature guide lines at any time.

Maximum weight of the motorcycle: as per the static load rating on your BST wheel stipulated on the BST website for your motorcycle. Maximum operating temperature: 100ºC / 210ºF

Hubs: Do not attempt to remove the hub and/or replace any components. The BST hubs are always factory fitted. The warranty expires immediately if any of the hub components has been removed, damaged or tampered with.

Bearings: In the case of replacing wheel bearings. The replacement or removal should only be performed by an approved OEM certified professional.

WHY BST

The only PRE-PREG AEROSPACE – F1 technology wheel.
BST is proven to be stronger and lighter than any other manufacturer.

Because we can engineer with carbon fibre and maximise on its properties of high strength and low weight, we have reduced the weight in the spokes and rim without compromising strength. The weight is therefore concentrated in the hub, which means that rotational inertia is reduced, making the bike easier to handle, and allowing you to accelerate quicker and brake later. So not only is the wheel lighter, but it is engineered for maximum performance.
