We would like to advise you that during ongoing quality assessment of our product we have identified a possible safety related problem on certain AJS vehicles within a specific production range. VIN LGVSJPS02GZ421070 to LGVSJPSAXJZ314056

It is a possibility that the headlight beam pattern on your AJS Heritage 125cc motorcycle is incorrect and this could result in oncoming drivers being dazzled. In addition, the rear reflector on the Cadwell 125 and Cadwell Clubman 125 only, may be positioned incorrectly meaning it may not be visible from certain angles such as; if a high vehicle is close behind you.

Therefore, it is necessary to inform you of this, and invite you to contact either your nearest or preferred AJS Dealer as soon as possible to arrange an appointment to have your vehicle inspected. To find your nearest AJS dealer, please use our Find A Dealer search.

This inspection and any related work will of course be carried out free of charge. The vehicle will be needed for approximately 45 mins (subject to the dealer having the headlight test equipment on site and any parts required, immediately available)
If you have any questions regarding this letter please speak to your AJS Dealer or telephone our Customer Services Centre on 01264 352 712

Therefore, should you no longer own the vehicle referred to above, it would greatly assist us in the important task of tracing and informing the new keeper if you could kindly email the details of the new keeper to: as soon as possible.
