Regarding the recall, Honda went on to say:

“To replace the judder spring and clutch basket on every 2018 CRF250R motorcycle, American Honda would be conducting a safety recall, that is in conjunction with CPSC.”

A letter has been issued to every registered owner regarding the safety recall. Modified parts will be used for the judder spring and the clutch basket also the repair will be done at no cost to the owner.
