Important Safety Notice: Safety Recall on all 2006 Honda TRX450R and TRX450ER ATV models due to contaminated ball joint.
This recall notice only pertains to vehicles within the following VIN Ranges:
JH2TE320*6K000019 to JH2TE320*6K010997 (TRX450ER)

A safety defect may exist in the steering system of your TRX. The front suspension arm ball joints may have been contaminated during the production process, resulting in rapid wear of the ball joints and possible ball joint separation. If ball joint separation occurs while riding, the TRX could lose steering control and may crash.
What should you do?
Honda strongly recommends that you do not operate your TRX until it has been repaired. Parts will be available soon. We will send you another letter notifying you when you can go to your Honda ATV dealer for the free replacement of all four front suspension arms
(Right/Left & Upper/Lower).
