What are the defects?

Improper routing of electrical wires under the fuel tank may cause the leads come in contact with frame edge. In addition, on certain models (JKBEJCA1?A000108 - JKBEJCA1?A015716), the throttle body holder may harden because of insufficient heat resistance. If it is continuously used the throttle body holder may crack and additional air may flow into the engine.

What are the hazards?

If either of the defects occur it may cause the engine to stall. In the worst case scenario, this may pose an accident hazard to the rider or other road users.
