TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETIN

Re: Genuine Buddy Kick 125 Fuel Pump Recall

Genuine Scooter Company has noticed an uptick in fuel pump failures on low mileage, late model Buddy Kick 125 scooters. The issue has been traced to a specific date range of fuel pumps by the fuel pump manufacturer. We have been given a list of all VINs that received fuel pumps with these date codes on them.  Out of an abundance of caution, Genuine has chosen to issue a NHTSA recall to replace all fuel pumps on affected vehicles remedying this issue.

 

Models Affected:

2022 Model Year Buddy Kick 125

 

Technical Issue:

During operation, loss of motor power to the scooter can occur without warning. This could result in a loss of motive power, which can increase the risk of an accident.

 

Remedy: 

To remedy, the fuel pump will be replaced on affected vehicles.  This problem will be resolved at no charge to the consumer.

Genuine will issue recall documentation to all registered consumers within the affected VIN range. We will instruct the customer to reach out to their dealer to schedule the repair. Dealers will then submit a warranty claim for the affected VIN, and we will ship the parts to the dealer. Upon completion of the repair, we ask that the dealer take a photo that shows the new fuel pump installed in the bike, with the metallic date code sticker visible.

 

To initiate the recall repair process:

1) Log into Simply Warranty and complete a warranty claim for each vehicle. A specific part number and labor code have been created for this recall. Enter in Part Number TS-BA5218000001 quantity 1. This covers all parts necessary to complete the recall. Enter in Labor Code KICK FUEL PUMP

2) Once the Simply Warranty claim has been submitted and approved by Genuine, the parts will be shipped.

3) After the fuel pump replacement has been completed, please upload photos confirming their installation (see attached below PDF for examples) to the Simply Warranty claim. Alternatively, dealers can email the photos to parts@genuinescooters.com with the claim number or VIN number. The labor reimbursement will then be credited to your account.

If you have questions relating to the installation of the motor or bearing set, please contact Genuine for further questions or concerns.

 


Chronology :

Buddy Kick has been an active model for Genuine Scooter Company since 2016. This model has had an extremely low failure rate on fuel pumps during it’s entire selling history. In early July of 2022, our warranty department reported that several dealers had submitted warranty claims for failed fuel pumps on the Buddy Kick model.

We ran a warranty report analysis and determined that the fuel pumps that had all failed within the first 500 miles of vehicle operation and seemed to be confined to a specific range of VIN numbers. We reported our findings to the factory based in Taiwan.

The factory subsequently requested defect samples of the failed fuel pumps. We obtained samples from our dealer network and sent the defective fuel pumps to the factory in August. The factory worked with the fuel pump supplier to analyze the defective fuel pump samples.

The fuel pump supplier provided feedback at the end of September that the manufacturing tolerances on the fuel pump had changed and were too close causing the pump impeller to contact the pump body with subsequent failure of the fuel pump. The fuel pump manufacturing process was evaluated and adjusted in October to ensure the tolerances were within the proper specifications to prevent future pump failures. The factory confirmed fuel pumps could be manufactured with the correct tolerances in November and subsequently a recall has been issued to remedy.
