ACCC advises Honda CRF250R component recall

372

AUSTRALIA. Australian Competition and Consumer Commission have issued a recall on 2018 Honda CRF250R- 250cc off-road competition motorcycle clutch basket.

VIN (Vehicle identification number)VIN range: JH2ME12U3JK000001 to JH2ME12U3JK000810

What are the defects?

If the motorcycle is used continuously at high speed, the heat generated may cause the clutch basket to break.

What are the hazards?

If the clutch basket breaks, the broken pieces may become lodged between the gears in the transmission, causing it to lock up suddenly. This may cause the rear wheel to lock up and the motorcycle to lose stability. If the motorcycle loses stability, the rider may be thrown from the motorcycle, resulting in death or serious injury.

What should consumers do?

Consumers should contact their nearest Honda Motorcycle Dealer and arrange for their motorcycle to be taken to the dealer for repair.
