Husqvarna Recall to Correct Front-Brake Issue

AMHERST, Ohio – KTM North America, Inc., is recalling certain model-year 2022 Husqvarna FE350 and FE501 motorcycles due to a potentially incorrectly installed brake-pad-retaining clip which could lead to reduced front-braking capability.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Part 573 Safety Recall Report 21V-678, some one (1) percent of the 342 motorcycles covered by this recall might have the incorrectly mounted “R” retaining clips on the front caliper.

If the clip is does become unfastened and drop from its intended location, it could impact braking, get lost while the bike is being ridden or potentially damage property, according to the NHTSA report.

The remedy is inspection at a Husqvarna dealer and, if necessary, the clip correctly installed.

Husqvarna dealers were alerted to the recall last month and owners are scheduled to be notified beginning Sept. 20.
