   Fire

The product poses a risk of fire because, if operated in sub-freezing temperatures for repeated, short-run periods of time, the crankcase ventilation valve assembly may become blocked by ice, leading to excessive crankcase pressure and leakage of oil, which could catch fire if it comes into contact with the exhaust header pipe.

   Voluntary corrective actions taken by the manufacturer.

   Injuries

The product poses a risk of injuries because an oversized ball joint stem mounting hole, and/or improperly tightened steering knuckle pinch bolts, could cause a reduction in the clamp force required to retain the ball joint stem in the steering knuckle. Reduced clamp force may not adequately retain the ball joint stem in all conditions, which can result in unwanted movement between the ball joint stem and the steering knuckle. This movement can lead to accelerated wear between the ball joint mounting stem and the steering knuckle, leading to loss of control.

   Voluntary withdrawal from the market and corrective actions taken by the manufacturer.
