    Updated Helmet recall info with Pics

    http://www.accc.gov.au/media-release...rcycle-helmets

    17 May 2013

    Over 1,000 potentially dangerous motorcycle helmets have been recalled after testing by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission found they were unsafe and did not meet the Australian/New Zealand Standard.

    “Motorcycle helmets are critical protective devices that are designed to prevent or minimise head injury during an accident,” ACCC Deputy Chair Delia Rickard said.

    “Motorcyclists must be able to rely on their helmets meeting the safety requirements.”

    The ACCC recently tested six different brands and models of motorcycle helmet against the requirements of the Australian/New Zealand Standard. Two of the six helmets failed to meet minimum safety requirements and have been recalled.

    “If consumers own a recalled helmet they should contact their supplier immediately for a refund or replacement and use an alternative helmet. It is not safe to wear the recalled helmet,” Ms Rickard said.

    The recalled helmets are:

    Kylin XR 205 open face skull cap style helmet (all sizes). This helmet was supplied by Bulk Bikes via eBay between 1July 2012 and 30 April 2013. The supplier is working to contact customers directly and advise them of the recall. Full details of the recall are available at http://www.recalls.gov.au/content/in...itemId/1047706.
    KBC VR-1X full face helmet. This helmet was imported by Monza Imports and sold by retailers online and in motorcycle accessory shops nationwide between 1 September 2012 and 7 May 2013. The model number of the helmet (VR-1X) is printed on the Vehicle Helmet User Warning Label stitched to the inside lining of the helmet. Full details of the recall are available at http://www.recalls.gov.au/content/in...itemId/1047524.

    The ACCC will be closely monitoring the effectiveness of these recalls. For further information, including supplier contact details, visit the Recalls Australia website at www.recalls.gov.au. For information about product safety, visit www.productsafety.gov.au.

    Harley Davidson - 2014 Touring & Touring CVO ABS Brake Line

    Product Safety Recalls Australia
    http://www.recalls.gov.au/content/in...itemId/1060437
    Harley Davidson - 2014 Touring & Touring CVO ABS Brake Line

    Product description
    Touring and Touring CVO motorcycle models built 1 July 2013 through to 7 May 2014.

    What are the defects?
    Harley-Davidson Motor Company, lnc. has determined that some of these motorcycles may have been assembled with a front brake line in a position where it could become pinched between the fuel tank and the frame, either at original assembly or in subsequent service activity. If this condition remains undetected it could cause front brake fluid pressure to increase while riding, possibly resulting in a front wheel lock-up.

    Triumph Motorcycle - Triumph Tiger Explorer and Trophy Model ECM Replacement

    Product description


    Triumph Tiger explorer and trophy model engine control module replacement.

    What are the defects?
    A limited number of Triumph Tiger Explorer and Trophy model motorcycles require replacement of their Engine Control Module (ECM) due to electrical interference from the throttle position sensor. On rare occasions this may cause the engine ECM to enter a shutdown strategy which in turn cause the engine to lose power, resulting in a loss of driving force and momentum.

    For further information, consumers should contact their nearest dealer.
