Renthal is recalling Gen1 and Gen 2 motorcycle clip-on handlebars that were sold through motorcycle dealers between April 2009 and July 2017. The company says the voluntary recall is due to a potential for product failure due to stress corrosion cracking. Renthal has received 22 reports of handlebars cracking, but no injuries have been reported. The handlebars were distributed through Tucker Rocky and Parts Unlimited.
Dealers should recommend that their customers should immediately stop using the recalled handlebars and contact Renthal for free replacement handlebars. The company can be reached online at www.renthalroad.com or toll-free at 877-736-8425 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. MT Monday-Friday.

The recall affects 3,000 units and involves all Gen 1 and Gen 2 motorcycle clip-on aluminum handlebars for motorcycles distributed or sold for use on non-public roads. Gen 1 handlebars have a golden 40 mm tube with a black clamp and texturized gray end cover. Renthal and adjustability markings are etched on the tube and on the clamp. Gen 2 handlebars have a silver 20 mm tube with a black tip on one end and a two-screw clamp on the other end. Renthal is printed on the clamp.
