Country of origin: Japan

No pictures are available

Injuries

The product poses a risk of injuries because the frame may crack at the lower rear cross-member. The lower rear engine mount has a threaded collar designed to eliminate clearance between the frame and the engine cases before the engine mounting bolt is installed and tightened. On the affected units, the collar was tightened excessively which created stress across the lower cross-member. This cross-member, which carries significant rear suspension loads, can therefore crack as a result of heavy suspension loading, such as when encountering potholes or rough surfaces. Failure of the frame could result in the rear of the motorcycle collapsing and lead to an accident.

Voluntary measures: Voluntary corrective action taken by the importer.
