Under certain conditions, the clutch basket can break and possibly cause the engine to lock up, increasing the risk of a crash and injury hazard.
All registered owners will receive a letter about the safety recall. The clutch basket and judder spring will be replaced with modified parts and the repair will be carried out at no cost to the owner. Dealers have been instructed to stop selling new or used 2018 model-year CRF250R motorcycles until the issue has been rectified.
