Motorcycle Equipment Recall - Ohlins Racing AB Recall

By Walter F. Kern

NHTSA Campaign ID:  15E025000
Component:  Suspension
Manufacturer:  Ohlins Racing AB
Recall Date: 03/30/2015
Potential Number of Units Affected: 964
Defect Summary:
Ohlins Racing AB (Ohlins) is recalling certain TTX36 aftermarket motorcycle shock absorbers manufactured November 5, 2013, to February 20, 2015. A complete list of the affected models and the motorcycles that they fit can be viewed by clicking on file RCORRD-15E025-7729.pdf under Associated Documents. The nut on the damper rod for these shock absorbers may loosen, resulting in a loss of damping and the possible disassembling of the shock.
Consequence Summary:
If the piston rod nut loosens, shock absorber performance would be affected, possibly causing a loss of vehicle control and increasing the risk of a crash.
Corrective Summary:
Ohlins will notify owners, and dealers will secure the rod nut, free of charge. Owners are advised not to ride their motorcycles until the recall remedy has been performed. The recall is expected to begin in April 2015. Owners may contact Ohlins customer service at 1-800-336-9029.
