Husqvarna and KTM recall over sticky throttle

Parents whose children ride a Husqvarna TC50 (above) or KTM 50 SX mini dirt bike should be aware that the new 2019 models are being recalled over an issue with a sticky throttle.

The official notice issued through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission says that on some motorcycles, the carburettor cover may not be screwed down and located correctly.

“The carburettor cover ensures the throttle slide will return to the closed position and cannot stay open,” it says.

“As the carburettor cover acts as the upper throttle slide stop, if incorrectly fitted it may lead to the throttle slide sticking and being unable to return to the closed position.

“Should this occur, it could affect the riders ability to control and operate the bike safely and may cause an accident involving the rider and others.”

Owners will be contacted by direct mail notifying them of the recall and requesting that an appointment be made with their local authorised dealer.

Authorised dealers will inspect the carburettor and repair free of charge if required.

For further information, contact Husqvarna on 1800 644 771 or click here to find your nearest authorised dealer.

Owners of the KTM 50 SX are asked to contact KTM Australia on 1800 644 771 or click here.

It is only the second recall for both brands this year.

The first Husky recall was over faulty Brembo front brakes on some road models. The first for KTM was over a fuel leak in the 690 Duke.
