SAF-2024-01

TELEMATICS BOX HOLDER REPAIR

 

ISSUE:

The telematics box (T-box) on some model year 2023 450SS motorcycles may dislodge and make steering difficult.
CFMOTO determined that excessive local shear stress and vehicle vibration could break the rubber rings holding the T-box, and the unsecured T-box could drop into a position that hampers steering.

To address this issue, CFMOTO improved the rubber rings, added a support bracket, and released a kit with these parts. All affected MY2023 450SS motorcycles need this T-box holder kit installed as soon as possible.

 

SOLUTION:

CFMOTO-USA is issuing this MANDATORY Safety Bulletin SAF-2024-01 and requiring dealers to install the T-box holder kit on their sold and unsold inventory of all affected 450SS motorcycles.
