Recall Details
Concern : OIL LEAKAGE MAY OCCUR
Description : It has been identified that frequent short trip usage at low ambient temperatures causes condensation in the engine oil, this condenses at the outlet port of the oil-tank breather. If temperature falls below 0 degrees Celsius, this may cause condesate to freeze and block the breather line to the oil tank. The engine's lubrication system configuration means that the suction pump's oil delivery rate is higher than that of the delivery pump, consequently the over pressure produced can cause the oil tank to rupture, allowing oil to escape and contaminate the rear tyre.
Remedial Action : Recalled machines will have the oil tank cap replaced.
