Default Rumour: Royal Enfield Himalayan 'silently' recalled for engine issues

Post launch, Some Himalayan owners reported the excessive engine tappet problems. It is to be believed that ASCs forwarded the videos of the same to company's headquarters. Apparently the solution is found and the recall in gradual phases has begun.

The excessive noise created by rocker arm assembly was the pain area. As a part of solution, the rocker arm and pin will be adjusted or replaced. For consumers having clutch issues, the clutch will be adjusted to resolve hard gear shifts.

Post recall, consumers have observed engine becoming smoother and linear in response. Plus, acceleration has improved as well.

Royal Enfield is supposed to make the official recall announcement in coming days. It is to be noted that not everyone is receiving the callback as of now.

This is only for a certain batch of engine numbers , mostly first lot. I observed some bikes coming into Ishna wheels , goregaon for this issue. I wasn't allowed into the service area but it looked like they might have been inserting shims to solve the issue . Could be wrong

Update : Royal Enfield has termed this exercise as "Proactive service update"

What it will cover:
  • Rocker unit replacement for high engine noise.
  • Clutch adjustment for Hard gear shift.
  • Adjustment of Stand gap.
  • Change of Saree guard.
Royal Enfield is addressing these issues on a case by case basis.

They are keeping a close eye on the forums, most of these issues were reported on Team BHP first. And then realized by many others.

If this is true, this is the first time I'm seeing a proactive measure from RE (based on my RE ownership experience). Kudos to them if they have finally woken up. The Himalayan is a bold step, and this will go a long way in creating customer confidence.

Completely agree. Quality Control is the number one problem with RE and this is a great step to address that. I am watching the Himalayan keenly as my possible next bike.

Great to hear! Should be for all owners though, and not on a case-by-case basis.

Still, just like Tata & Mahindra, it's probably best to buy Royal Enfield's new models after a year or two (once the initial niggles have been ironed out).
