More trouble for Öhlins suspension owners, as Öhlins USA is recalling 50 units of its ?hlins RXF 48mm front forks for motocross bikes. The recall notice simply states that the forks can break or detach during using, which poses a crash hazard.

Öhlins will replace the affected units, which are 37″ in length, and feature a large white “?” and a small “TTX” on the front. If that description is a little too vague fro you, concerned owners can check the product and batch numbers, stamped on the silver-colored front fork bottom piece:

Product Number Batch Number
FGKT 1586 309632
FGHO 1596 309640
FGKT 1596 309628

If you do happen to own one of the affected models, you should stop using their ?hlins RXF 48mm front forks immediately and contact ?hlins for a free replacement and installation of a new cartridge kit in the fork.
