Husqvarna Motorcycles has announced it is recalling specific frame numbers of 2016 FC 250 models, due to an issue that requires a complete crankshaft replacement.
Husqvarna says that following market investigations it has determined that deviations in the manufacturing process for the connecting rod may result in early failure and fracturing of the conrod under certain load conditions.
Husqvarna says it has decided the best solution to the problems is to replace the complete crankshaft on affected bikes. The KTM-owned company says that owners of affected 2016 FC 250 models will be informed by mail, and they will be instructed to immediately contact an authorised Husqvarna Motorcycles dealer to arrange an appointment for replacement.
Customers can check online in the ‘Service’ area of the Husqvarna Motorcycles website to determine if their motorcycle is affected by this recall.
Replacement crankshaft work will be carried out at no cost to motorcycle owners, but, Husqvarna says, it must be performed only by authorised Husqvarna Motorcycles dealers.
