Husqvarna Motorcycles is recalling certain frame numbers of TC, FC, TX, TE and FE models of the year 2017 to authorised Husqvarna dealers for an inspection and, if necessary, replacement of the handbrake cylinder.

Following market investigations by Husqvarna, it has been determined that anomalies in the manufacturing process have resulted, with certain batches, in hand brake cylinders with defective machining from the supplier.

This can lead to early wear of the sealing cup in the hand brake cylinder, thus leading to impaired braking performance.

As the anomalies are restricted to specific batches, the hand brake cylinder must be checked and the affected batches replaced.

Owners of affected motorcycles will be informed by a personal letter. They are asked to contact an authorised Husqvarna Motorcycles dealer to arrange an appointment for inspection.

In addition, customers can check online in the service area of the Husqvarna Motorcycles website to determine if their motorcycle is affected.

The check and or replacement of the handbrake cylinder will be carried out at no cost to owners, but must be performed by authorised Husqvarna dealers only.
