Beta Issues Recall On 350, 390, 430 & 500 RR-S Dual Sport Models

Risk of brake failure triggers recall on the brand’s street-legal enduros.

Published on 05.31.2022

Beta USA is recalling certain 350 RR-S, 390 RR-S, 430 RR-S, and 500 RR-S models due to a brake hose related issue. It is estimated that a total of 97 dual sport motorcycles from model year 2022 are affected by the recall filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

According to the defect report, affected motorcycles had the incorrect front brake hose installed during production. The recall was triggered after a dealer discovered one of the bikes they received had the issue. Beta USA proceeded to locate the bike’s production run and through an internal investigation found that several models produced from December 03-28, 2021 were assembled with the incorrect brake hoses.

Models affected by the recall:

BETA350 RR-S2022
BETA390 RR-S2022
BETA430 RR-S2022
BETA500 RR-S2022
2022 Beta 500 RR-S dual sport recall

What Can Happen


The NHTSA report states that the incorrect front brake hose does not have enough free play and could possibly get caught on the speedometer or dashboard. This can cause damage to the speedometer/dashboard and possibly disconnect the front brake hose unexpectedly, resulting in a loss of brakes.

Owners can check if their bike has the wrong front brake hose installed by looking at its part number: the recalled part will have the number as opposed to the correct part number 29.09108.000. Another visual difference is how the front brake hose connects to the Master Cylinder on the handlebars. The correct component has a slight bend to the hose where it goes into the master cylinder, whereas the recalled part will go straight in.

How To Get It Fixed

Beta USA has stated they will replace the front brake hose, free of charge. Recall number R-2022-1 notification to owners by mail began May 17, 2022 and you may contact Beta customer service with related questions at 1-805-226-4035. Those affected may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 or check if their bike is involved in the recall by entering its VIN number at
