Concern : IMPROPER WELDS IN FRAME CROSS MEMBER
Description : The frame welds do not meet manufacturing specifications. High loads created when riding on rough road surfaces or over pot holes can cause the affected welds to crack. In the worst case, the welded area could break, resulting in rear suspension collapse or lower cross member separation.
Remedial Action : Recall affected machines for inspection. Any repairs will consist of reinforcement of the welds and where cracks are identified during the initial inspection, a new countermeasure frame will be installed.
