KTM and Husqvarna recalled its 50cc motocross bikes in December last year due to an issue with the carburettor. The recall has been updated to include more models.
What are the defects?
On some motorcycles, the carburetor cover may not be screwed down and located correctly. The carburetor cover ensures the throttle slide will return to the closed position and cannot stay open.
What are the hazards?
As the carburetor cover acts as the upper throttle slide stop, if incorrectly fitted it may lead to the throttle slide sticking and being unable to return to the closed position. Should this occur, it could affect the riders ability to control and operate the bike safely and may cause an accident to the rider and others.
Consumers will be contacted by direct mail notifying them of the recall and requesting that an appointment be made with their local authorised dealer.
