HiPer Technology Inc., Lawrence, Kan., has recalled approximately 875 of its nine-inch ATV wheels with an aluminum center section.
HiPer says the aluminum center section of the wheel can come apart causing the tire and rim to unexpectedly separate from the ATV. HiPer has received 12 reports of wheel center section breakage and separation.
The recalled nine-inch ATV aftermarket rear wheels have a model number of 0990 YHR and can be used as the rear wheel for the following bolt patterns: four bolts on a 110mm circle or four bolts on a 115mm circle. The center section of the wheel is made of aluminum and has eight bolt holes.
Manufactured in the United States from February 15 through May 2005, the wheels were sold by ATV dealers and HiPer Technology from February 2005 through May 2005 for about $190.
HiPer Technology says it will offer a replacement wheel center section and or wheel repair, free of charge. Call HiPer, 877/464-4737, or visit the firm's Web site, www.hiper-technology.com, for more information.
