Honda Australia has recalled their CRF1000 Africa Twin adventure motorcycle’s accessory main stand kit which could come loose and fall off.
The official recall notice issued through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission says that due to “improper heat treatment during manufacture”, the retaining circlip may become brittle and break.
“If the circlip breaks, the main stand may become dislodged from its mounting,” the notice says.
“If this occurs, the motorcycle may fall over when it is pulled onto the Main Stand, which may cause injury to the rider. If the Main Stand becomes dislodged while riding, it may fall onto the road and cause a danger to other road users.”
Owners should contact their nearest Honda dealer and arrange for their motorcycle to be inspected and repaired “at their earliest opportunity”.
