Husqvarna Motorcycles New Zealand has announced a recall of 2019 TC 50 minicycles due to a fault in the assembly of the motorcycle's carburettor.
This week Husqvarna Motorcycles announced a recall for 2019 TC 50 kids bikes. The reason behind the recall is to have an authorised Husqvarna mechanic inspect the bike's carburettor for a potential fault which may have occurred during assembly.
Husqvarna's official press release stated that during the carburettor assembly process for MY19 TC 50 models, the carburettor covers may have been fitted incorrectly. Considering the carburettor cover also acts as the upper throttle slide stop, if fitted incorrectly, this may lead to the throttle slide not operating smoothly or not returning to the closed position.
Husqvarna Motorcycles consider it important that the correct fitment of the carburettor cover is checked and therefore all affected models should be checked to ensure maximum safety in all conditions.
Customers who have bought a 2019 model TC 50 will be notified by via personal letter and are asked to immediately contact an authorised Husqvarna Motorcycles Dealer to
arrange an inspection appointment.
In addition, customers can check online in the ‘Service’ area of the Husqvarna Motorcycles website to determine if their motorcycle is affected by this recall.
