Piaggio Recalls Aprilia Scarabeo 100 for Emission and Fuel Problems

Piaggio has issued a recall of certain 2008-2009 Aprilia Scarabeo 100 motorcycles.

In the evaporative emission system there are hoses connecting the fuel tank to the charcoal canister through which the evaporative emission passes. It has shown that the emission hoses to the canister were pinched and/or crimped. In other cases the hoses in and out of the charcoal canister were installed backwards, the roll over valve for the fuel tank was installed incorrectly, and in other cases there was dirt in the carburetor and still others had faulty float valves in the carburetor.

740 units are affected.
