Husqvarna Issues Recall on 701 Enduro LR Dual Sport Model

Risk of a fuel leak triggers recall for the long-range 701 enduro.

Published on 05.26.2021

KTM North America/Husqvarna is recalling all 2020 701 Enduro LR motorcycles due to an issue with the fuel lines located on the front tank. It is estimated that a total of 171 units are affected by the recall filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). 

According to the defect report, both fuel lines may chafe against the tank. The issue is due to the shape and mounting position of the original fuel lines which create contact points with the components. This was originally discovered in some units during an end-of-line-inspection which triggered an investigation that found occasional abrasion on the existing fuel lines.

What Could Happen

The NHTSA recall report states that abrasion of the fuel lines can result in a fuel leak. This is a danger in the presence of an ignition source which can increase the risk of a fire, potentially causing injury to the rider or others.

How To Get It Fixed

Owners of affected models are instructed to call their local authorized Husqvarna Dealer as soon as possible to have the repair for recall HTB2105 performed. To remedy this defect, dealers will install two new fuel lines and an additional clamp to prevent future abrasion, free of charge. Dealerships have also stopped the sale of units affected until the different components have been replaced under the recall. 

According to the official NHTSA filing, owner notification letters are expected to be mailed June 11, 2021. You may also contact KTM customer service at 1-888-985-6090 or check your VIN to see if you are affected by the recall at www.nhtsa.gov.
