    K&N Oil Filter KN-204 RECALL

    Just received a mail from M&P who I bought an oil filter from a while back, it was for a tiger but its the same fitment as the Trophy....

    KN-204 OIL FILTER RECALL
    WHY WE ARE TAKING THIS ACTION
    K&N has discovered that in certain KN-204 oil filters manufactured between March 1, 2016 and September 30, 2016, oil can leak at the area where a nut (intended for use to remove the oil filter during routine oil changes) was welded to the bottom of the filter canister. If there is such a leak, oil could come into contact with the rear tire or rear brake of the motorcycle on which the filter was installed. If this were to occur, it could lead to a loss of control or a crash. Therefore, K&N is offering to replace the affected oil filters at no charge. This offer of a free replacement also applies to those covered KN-204 oil filters that were purchased for use in an application other than a motorcycle, such as an ATV or PWC (personal watercraft).

    If you have one of the affected batch of oil filters, please photograph the date code and send the picture to us at sales@mandp.com and we will dispatch a replacement as soon as we can. You must include your name, address and phone number so that we are able to deal with your claim as efficiently as possible.

     
    Affected batches - 3H, 4H, 5H, 6H, 7H, 8H or 9H
    Items covered by this recall
    This recall applies only to KN-204 oil filters manufactured between March 1, 2016 and September 30, 2016. The KN-204 oil filters covered by this recall have manufacturing date codes imprinted on the ends of the filters that contain as the second and third characters of the code the number/letter combinations of 3H, 4H, 5H, 6H, 7H, 8H or 9H, with the number corresponding to the month of the year (i.e., 3 for the month of March, 4 for the month of April, etc.) and the letter "H" representing the year 2016. KN-204 oil filters manufactured outside of that date range and which bear different manufacturing date codes are not covered by this recall. The date code can be found as shown in the photograph below. In this photo, the relevant character combination is "7H", which indicates the oil filter was manufactured in July 2016.

    Thank you for this.  I was just about to buy another of these for an oil change.  I will check the date code for sure.

    Nice to see, I mentioned this happening numerous times on the Honda CB1100 forum here. Glad to see K&N has acknowledged the problem. I hope no one was injured or worse.

    Just got my recall letter from K&N Engineering yesterday. Went out right away to get a replacement and the first store only had one in stock and it was subject to the recall. (Check those codes before you buy!) Second store had a good one.

    Worth mentioning;  When I went to check my filter to see for myself if it was subject to the recall (it was) I noted some weeping around the edge of the weld in question.  Glad this was resolved last night before I head out on my Smokey Mountain ride this morning!  Timely.   :169:

    So, I emailed my photo and information to that email address given on October 11th.  I have yet to even receive a reply of any kind?  Has this been your experience?  I kind of expected something, even just a generic confirmation email or something, but nothing.

    rpeters549 - Same here - crickets.  Not even so much as a grunt.  The letter gives a weblink to download a form to send in. The weblink takes you to their page regarding the recall (basically has an abridged version of the letter there), but no form download is available there.  So, I am wondering what the deal is.  :084:
