The recall notice advises that there is a possibility that an engine oil-way blanking plug may become dislodged.

What are the hazards?

If the blanking plug is dislodged oil will leak from the engine and may come into contact with the tyres.

This may cause loss of traction and/or control of the motorcycle.

What should owners do?

Affected owners will be contacted by Hyosung importers, PS Importers, when parts are available and will be advised to contact their nearest authorised Hyosung dealer to arrange for an inspection and repair of the motorcycle.
