The problem is caused by 'unevenness in the area of the sealing surface between the tank and the fuel pump as well as the tank and the fuel level sensor'. The company will be contacting the owners of affected motorcycles via letters and fix an appointment with the nearest Husqvarna dealership. All affected motorcycles will get a new fuel tank with thicker walls and a new sealing system. The inspection and replacement will be done free of cost for all customers.
