What are the defects?

During operation or while parked, due to unevenness on the sealing surfaces, it is possible that fuel can leak out of the fuel level sensor mounting area and/or the fuel pump mounting area of the fuel tank.

What are the hazards?

If a fuel leak occurs, leaking fuel could cause damage or may result in fire, increasing the risk of serious injury or death to the rider, bystanders and risk of damage to property.

What should consumers do?

Consumers are recommended to stop riding the motorcycle until it has been repaired. If you previously experienced or are now experiencing a fuel leak, immediately contact an authorised dealer and do not ride the motorcycle.

Consumers will be sent letters advising them of the recall and that parts are now available for immediate repairs. Consumers should contact an authorised dealer to arrange an appointment for inspection of their motorcycle, to have a replacement fuel tank installed.
