Husqvarna 650 Terra Safety Recall
« on: July 12, 2017, 04:09:00 pm »
Hello Terra/Strada owners

Husqvarna 650 Terra/Strada has a safety recall in a number of countries :

2: https://www.productsafety.gov.au/recall/hqva-pty-ltd-husqvarna-motorcycles-models-tr-650-terra-and-tr-650-strada-2013-2014

If you go to the official Husky site and submit your VIN number there is a  safety recall on the 650 Terra 2013 model.

Has anyone got any info from the SA Dealership? Has anyone ever had a recall in SA before, what is the protocol?  :deal:

Kind regards
George

Haha, that is funny.  Recall is for stalling issues, bikes are know for cutting out randomly....usually at the most inappropriate times.   Sounds like the fix is a new ECU mapping or fuel mapping.

All the best

Sounds like a problem the G650GS' had.

Did BMW still own Husqvarna in 2013?
