Does the manufacturing code on your crank arm match any of the two-letter productions codes above?
NO: The crankset is not affected. No further action is required.
YES: Proceed to STEP 2.
STEP 2 – Bring the bike to us for inspection
Shimano has developed the crankset inspection process and will provide clear instructions and tutorials for dealers. Shimano anticipates that the inspections will be possible starting from OCTOBER 1, 2023. The dealer will inspect the crankset for signs of bonding separation or delamination.Consumers whose cranksets show signs of bonding separation or delamination during the inspection will be provided a free replacement crankset from Shimano that the dealer will professionally install. If your crankset needs replacement following the inspection, please do not use it. If a replacement crankset is temporarily unavailable, Shimano will notify you through your dealer when the replacement is ready.
The replaced crankset will be a special version, which may feature a different cosmetic appearance while maintaining the same level of performance.
