I got a call back today from the agent handling my case and she said that Husqvarna is issuing a Canada-wide recall for the tank based on my complaint. They are sending out mail notifications soon. However, they don’t have a fix yet and will likely send out a second notification by mail when they have a plan of action.
I brought mine to the the dealer two weeks ago (100 miles, third ride) with leaking clutch slave. Two weeks to get the correct part and then I get it recalled while it’s still in the shop for the gas leak in USA. Dealer said there’s a recall but no fix for it yet… wtf? And I thought my Ducati’s were bad.
I received my notice letter about the gas tank issue on Friday. (I live in the United States). I haven’t been riding it since I heard about the issue a few months ago. I still have no leak. Fingers crossed they get a fix soon. I need my quick shifter fixed as well since it has never worked. Pretty unacceptable…
Update: called my dealer in Toronto today. COVID restrictions have held up the production and distribution of the replacement part, but their rep the dealer a new part has been engineered and approved. She wasn’t sure exactly what changes had been made, guessing (like the rest of us) that it is a different plastic material.
