Husqvarna issues recall on 701 Enduro LR Dual Sport model
KTM North America / Husqvarna is recalling all 2020 701 Enduro LR motorcycles due to an issue with the fuel lines located on the front tank. It is estimated that a total of 171 units are affected by the recall filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
Depending on the fault report, both fuel lines may rub against the tank. The problem is due to the shape and mounting position of the original fuel lines which create contact points with the components. This was initially discovered in some units during an end-of-line inspection which triggered an investigation which found occasional abrasion on existing fuel lines.
What could happen
The NHTSA recall report states that abrasion of the fuel lines can lead to fuel leakage. This is a hazard in the presence of an ignition source which can increase the risk of fire, potentially causing injury to the rider or other persons.
