Brake fault recall for Moto Guzzi V7 III

Moto Guzzi V7 III Stone fault

Moto Guzzi has recalled its V7 III over a fault in the brake system.

It is the first official recall notice issued by Moto Guzzi since July 2013.

The official recall notice issued through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission says part of the ABS system pipe-work may contact or rub against other parts of the engine.

Danger of brake fault

“This may lead to damage of the brake pipes and in the worst case scenario, lead to the loss of braking capability,” the notice says.

Owners are advised to contact their nearest authorised Moto Guzzi dealer and arrange a time for an inspection and the installation of a specific pipe support bracket.

A full list of authorised dealers can be found on the “Find a Dealer” page and a full list of Vehicle Identification Numbers of bikes that may have the brake fault is attached at the end of this article.

YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS ON RECALLS

Recall notices are issued by the manufacturer through a voluntary industry code under the ACCC.

Despite hundreds of recalls by various automotive manufacturers, none has ever been mandatory.  All have been issued by the manufacturer.

While any recall is not good news for the manufacturer, it shows that they are largely diligent in fixing problems.

If you believe there is an endemic problem with your bike that should be recalled, contact the ACCC on 1300 302 502.
