Workshop Recalls IMAGE

Recalls are handled by VOSA (Vehicle & Operator Services) – here’s what they say about recalls…

“Recalls to address safety defects in motorbikes are launched and monitored under the terms of Codes of Practice formulated from discussions between the Department for Transport and the Trade Associations representing the Motor Manufacturing industry.

These Codes set out the guidelines and procedures for the recall of vehicles and components that have safety related defects due to a feature of design or construction, and which are liable to cause significant risk of injury to the driver, occupants of the vehicle or other road users.

It is the responsibility of the manufacturer to inform VOSA when substantial evidence of a safety defect that requires remedial action has been confirmed. Additionally, evidence may be presented to the manufacturer by VOSA as a result of investigations into collisions and safety defects which have been brought to their attention from other sources.”

Don’t worry – we’ll already know all about any Suzuki or Yamaha recall and be ready to get you sorted quickly.

If you get a recall letter – just give us a call and we’ll get you booked in as soon as we can.

If you buy a used Suzuki, Triumph or Yamaha bike from us that’s less than 10 years old, we’ll always change the warranty over to your name. Whilst the bikes warranty may have run out, doing this means that we know that if there is a recall you will get that all important manufacturers letter.

If you bought your bike from elsewhere and want to check that there are no outstanding recalls on your bike click here to go to the VOSA site.
