2015 Husqvarna Recalls

The parent company of Husqvarna – KTM – has recalled 36 of its 2015 FE2350S and FE501S dual-sport motorcycles due to suspension issues.

KTM reports there may be issues with the fork on 2015 Husqvarna FE350S and FE501S motorcycles manufactured from July 22, 2014, through July 23, 2014. KTM says the threaded connection between the piston rod and fork cap may not have been sufficiently tightened, resulting in the piston rod becoming stuck within the fork leg.

If the piston rod detaches within the fork leg, the front suspension could malfunction and destabilize the motorcycle, increasing the risk of a crash, KTM reports.

KTM will notify owners, and Husqvarna dealers will inspect the torque of the fork piston rod to the fork cap, correcting it as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in January 2015. Owners may contact KTM customer service at 1-888-985-6090. KTM’s number for this recall is TB 1503.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
