KTM North America has issued a recall due to a fuel line fault on both fuel lines located on the front fuel tank. According to the announcement, the way the existing fuel lines and the fuel tank interact on all 2020 Husqvarna 701 Enduro LR’s could result in abrasion, which could potentially result in a fuel leak. That could cause damage and/or fire as a result.
According to KTM, both the shape and the mounting position of the original fuel lines in the front fuel tank are partial reasons why this abrasion can occur. As a result, two newly-designed fuel lines with a different shape and an additional clamp to avoid this problem will be installed in place of the old, faulty fuel lines when these bikes come in for their recall service. All recall service will be performed by authorized Husqvarna dealers.
Affected bikes were produced between March 5, 2020 and October 13, 2020, and affected motorcycles remaining in dealer hands must not be sold or operated until this recall service is performed, according to Husqvarna’s official service bulletin. If a customer was waiting to take delivery of their new 2020 701 Enduro LR, Husqvarna North America should ensure that this service is performed prior to that owner taking delivery.
Husqvarna Motorcycles North America will notify dealers between May 14, 2021 and July 22, 2022.
