Honda Motorcycle and Power Equipment Pty Ltd — Honda CRF1000 Main Stand Kit
What are the defects?
Due to improper heat treatment during manufacture, the retaining circlip may become brittle and break.
What are the hazards?
If the circlip breaks, the Main Stand may become dislodged from its mounting. If this occurs, the motorcycle may fall over when it is pulled onto the Main Stand, which may cause injury to the rider. If the Main Stand becomes dislodged while riding, it may fall onto the road and cause a danger to other road users.
What should consumers do?
Consumers should contact their nearest Honda dealer and arrange for their motorcycle to be inspected and repaired at their earliest opportunity.
