About 50 Ӧhlins RXF 48 front forks for motocross bikes are being recalled over fears that the forks might break or detach and cause an injurious crash, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission on June 9.

The recalled products have yellow fork legs with a large letter “Ӧ” written on top of smaller letters “TTX.” The bottom part of the fork legs have silver-colored pieces where the affected product and batch numbers are etched. The affected product numbers and their batch numbers are FGKT 1586 (batch number 309632), FGHO 1596 (batch number 309640), FGKT 1596 (batch number 309628) and FGKT 1596 (batch number 138461).

The products were sold at different off-road bike outlets nationwide between November 2014 and May 2015. Customers are asked to contact the company for a free fix.
