Husqvarna—Off Road Two-Stroke Motorcycles

Identifying features

Target: 215
Please see attached document for affected VIN details.

What are the defects?

There is an incorrectly produced inner cable retaining guide within the upper throttle housing.

What are the hazards?

It may be possible for the inner cable to jump the cable wheel and be pinched between the cable wheel and the upper throttle housing. This may cause the throttle to stick in the open position, resulting in uncontrolled acceleration.

What should consumers do?

Consumers should cease riding the motorcycle and return it to an authorised Husqvarna dealer for replacement of the upper throttle housing. A letter is being sent to affected owners with detailed instructions.
