Husqvarna Motorcycles Press Release:

Husqvarna Motorcycles is recalling specific frame numbers of the 2016 FC 250 machines to authorized Husqvarna dealers for a complete crankshaft replacement.

Following market investigations by Husqvarna Motorcycles it has been determined that deviations in the manufacturing process of the connecting rod may result in early failure and fracturing of the conrod under certain load conditions.

Husqvarna Motorcycles is therefore issuing an instruction to replace the complete crankshaft on affected bikes. Owners of 2016 FC 250 models are being informed by a personal letter, asking them to immediately contact an authorized 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 must be performed by authorized Husqvarna Motorcycles dealers only.
