I believe this is the recall that affected bikes with M50 calipers.

My son and I were at the track riding our Super Motos (FS450) and he lost his front brakes due to this Bull Shit! He lost them at the end of a straight coming into a 90 degree turn! He wound up hitting the barrier and flipped over it. He was real lucky for sure. I called Husqvarna to find out WTF and it turns out the F’N dealer didn’t do the recalls on the bikes before we picked them up! I wanted to drive my truck through their building!

No the Master cylinder failed on the track at one of the worst times… At the end of the straight away. He went to grab a hand full of brake and because it was already getting worked over pretty good it just gave up and the lever pulled all the way to the bars. He jumped on the rear but as you know that’s not doing shit. He was very lucky it was the shorter of the two straights on the track so he was going about 40 instead of 100 plus. On the way home I called the dealership where we bought them and they still didn’t tell us about the warranty recall. They said just bring the bikes in and they’d look them over. Well I knew that sounded strange so I started poking around and found the recall was on a few of our bikes. Both the 2018 Husqvarna S450’s and our 1299SA. I changed the 450s masters out to Brembo 16x18's and installed RCS19’s on my 1299SA and Super Duke. We ride way too hard to have to worry about a master cylinder failure and I'm not taking any chances. I also called Husqvarna and let them know how their dealer wasn’t on their shit and how my kid almost got totaled. Total lack of giving a shit from that dealer…..
