Yes that means your tire was built in the 27 week of 2012. The MFG date code for the update to dual compound was 19 week of 2012 ( 1912 ), according to the reports. So this should be a Azaro dual compound. Keep us posed one mileage, etc. Cool. They are here.

I just got off the phone with Avon USA....I was told there is NO DUAL COMPOUND Azaro  :'(  ....even if the date code is 1912 or beyond.  I called them to try to find out where I could get an Azaro DC.  I mentioned seeing this info on the forum and I was under the impression that it came from GB.  The lady I talked with, Sukoshi, is checking on it and will get back to me.  Anxiously waiting since I need tires.  I will try to remember to ask about the Storm 3 also.

  I was under the impression that it came from GB. 

Yes it did. Why not contact the person I deal with OTP as detailed in my first post? At least then you should get a straight answer.

I just got off the phone with Avon USA....I was told there is a DUAL or MULTI COMPOUND Azaro   :great:  .... the date code is 1912 (May 2012) or beyond.  Now the trick is finding a Distributor that has them.  :motonoises:  I was told you have to go through a dealer to get them.  I have my local shop looking now.  If he finds them I'll post where.  No info. about the Storm 3 yet.

Another member reported getting a date code later than 1912 from Dennis Kirk, earlier in this thread. If they have them I would guess the main distributers have them and the new inventory needs to trickle down to the dealer level. Just a guess.

Maybe they're sitting some (now) obsolete inventory that is single compound and don't want to dump them cheap. But, I'll bet some Coggers would be willing to buy them cheap and wear 'em out... :D

just bought mine last month and stamped 2712, so I guess mine is DC. I remember the parts guy saying some thing about it being a new compound because he tried to match the front tire to the rear and could not do it.  Roseville Yamaha Ca. $345.00 for the set.

OK, no change listed from the old storm 46-st but the stamp is 2712 if that is what designates it to be the DC tire. I bought these tires from Roseville Yamaha here in Roseville California.

Ordered Azaro rear and Storm Ultra 2 from Dennis Kirk  (date code 2712)...had them go hand pick one because they still had a couple before the 1912 date code.  $285.78 total...good price.
