The official recall notice, issued through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission warns owners that the vehicle’s engine may experience “fuel starvation and temporary loss of engine performance”.

“Vehicles may lose power and slow down unexpectedly which may pose a risk of an accident and serious injury to the rider and other road users,” it says.

Owners have been advised to contact their nearest authorised dealer “without delay” and arrange a time for the free repair.

“The repair involves the installation of an additional fuel system breather point and will be completed by your dealer or other authorised workshop at no cost to you,” it says.

Therefore, Motorbike Writer publishes all motorcycle and scooter recalls as a service to all riders.

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