Magura Recalls Brake Cylinder


190 Radial Brake master cylinders suspect.

Magura USA is recalling about 200 of its 190 Radial Brake Master Cylinders used on off-road motorcycles.

This recall involves 190 Radial Brake Master Cylinders with an A or B code on the underside of the lever's pivot bolt. Brake cylinders without the A or B markings are not included in this recall.

Magura says the brake cylinder on the off-road motorcycle can crack and result in brake failure. No incidents or injuries have been reported so far.

Motorcycle dealers, mail-order catalogs and Web retailers sold the parts from August 2005 through May 2007 for about $420. Consumers have been asked by Magura to stop using bikes with the recalled brake cylinders immediately, and contact Magura USA to receive a replacement product.

Magura USA is based in Olney, Ill. The parts were manufactured by Gustav Magenwirth GmbH of Bad Urach, Germany.
