"1 Year Free cover for road hazard damage including cuts, bursts, side wall damage etc. Mousses, Tubes etc are excluded"

"Batt-T Sure, to protect your rubber against damage caused on urban roads (think potholes and road works), adventure trails and even endurance-pro type terrain. Batt-T Sure is available on tyres fitted to motorbikes, quad bikes, ATV or side x sides, up to the maximum cover limits selected.
Protection is provided for accidental damage caused by harsh braking, cuts, bursts and road inequalities. Bubbles on tyres, which result from pot holes, are also included, however race tyres and racing tyre cover are excluded."

I am the customer in this scenario. I appreciate all the input. But F@CK Boet! When I decide to drive 800km to sort this thing (400km one way) then you must know this has become a matter of principle to me! The cost not even considered.

I think us South African consumers are so used being taken and used to bad service from all walks of life and the suppliers out there know nobody really ever complains! Likes being ripped without a word!  On this issue I've just decided - fuckem all! And if you're consumer? I do this for you too! You can thank me later!

Japie, jy is reg wat betref ons houding as verbruikers. Maak seker jy poep nie teen donderweer nie. Al wat saak maak is wat sę die kontrak beteken 'irreparable'

Ek sou darm self nie versekering op my bike se tyres vat nie, maar as hulle dit wil verniet gaan staan en weg gee moet hulle nou maar die prys betaal. Hou ons op hoogte

Today i get the response below:

Japie

The Insurance accessor had a look at the 170/60-16 Metzeler Karoo 3 Tyre..
He said that he cannot Cover as the Tyre was fitted with Puncture Plugs.
Insurance Cover does not cover for repairs done to the Tyre.

Sorry……

Thank you & kind regards

Found some info on this insurance. Japie their excuse is bullshit. They can't expext you to sit in the middle of nowhere and not attempt a repair. This they should have forseen could happen and work into their risk assessment.

If they can't now repair it they must compensate you. Note its not a tyre replacement. They pay you out for the unused tyre tread. You buy a new tyre and they credit you the unused part.

Yip, they did not think this through well. Doubt Japie could have used more than 30% of the tyres tread. That is what they would have had to pay him out. R600.00 ?

Bad business.

CORRECTION - They pay out the unused tread.

oh dear. Internet lynch mob.

But ya, the dealer should replace the tyre and claim from the insurer. Unless the insurer is themselves?

Always interesting to see the reaction to these complaints.

Bike Tyre Warehouse:  Growing toward a lynch mob.
KTM Cape Town:  Excuses for vendor galore.
