    Huqvarna has finally identified the failing clutch reviver cylinder problem and recalled effected bikes:

    My dealer was kind enough to show me the recall paperwork:

    Most interesting bit is page 2. It shows how to visually determine whether you have the old, failure prone clutch receiver cylinder or the newer one.

    My dealer is apparently a bit fed up with the whole thing and opted to install a Rekluse receiver cylinder on their own dime. They already had it in stock and had it down in 90 minutes at no cost to me. I’m starting to quite like this shop.

    Alternate link to my photos of the dealer recall doc, in case anybody has trouble with the Google PHotos link:

    It sure is!

    I currently have mine in the shop – awaiting parts.

    Sounds like service needs to order an “inspection” kit then install the “recall kit”.

    Ensure you ask your service techs to order both at the same time if possible to avoid any delays. That way they don’t start the clock over on waiting for parts.

    This turned out to be good timing for me.  I’ve just started to get an inconsistent clutch action.  The bike has a few months left on warranty.  I took it in.  New designed piston in the slave and not just a new seal.  The bike has had quite a few problems, but I have to say Husqvarna have always done the right thing.  I’m pretty sure its been enough to eat into the profit margin – tank, throttle, shift shaft seal, warped plastic dash, a rear disk that was not flat and now the clutch. All theses things have cost Husqvarna labor, not just the parts and shipping.

    I proactively purchased the Oberon slave kit so I didn’t have to worry about this issue.  I’m glad to see they are addressing it, but a bit too late for me.
