Öhlins DTC regrets to inform there is a manufacturing defect that relates to motorcycle safety and exists in the brackets for Öhlins aftermarket steering dampers manufactured between September 2008 and October 2013.
We strongly urge you to stop using the bike until the steering damper has been removed or corrected! It can be a safety issue to use the bike with the faulty steering damper on the bike.
The aluminum alloy is sensitive to stress corrosion cracking and there is also a risk the bracket will fail when steering is used to maneuver the bike in a small radius or with a maximum steering angle used in one direction. Öhlins has decided to recall all steering damper brackets and replace these with new brackets.
