Recall Details
Concern : FRONT BRAKES MAY FAIL
Description : It has been identified that, a combination of unfavourable tolerances can result in the brake lines being under strain. As a consequence, when the machine is being ridden the brake lines could develop leaks, thus allowing hydraulic fluid to escape. This will cause the level of the hydraulic fluid within the reservoir to fall, which if this goes unnoticed, can result in failure of the front brakes only.
Remedial Action : Recalled machines will be fitted with brakes lines which are significantly more resistant to the effects of vibration and strain. Additionally, have a geometry which allows for tolerances that ensure that the lines are not under strain in their installed positions.
