Motorcycle Recall - Indian

NHTSA Campaign ID:  11V340000
Component:  Exterior Lighting: Brake lights: Switch
Manufacturer:  Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA
Recall Date: 06/24/2011
Potential Number of Units Affected: 260
Defect Summary:
Yamaha is recalling certain model year 2011 FJR1300 motorcycles manufactured from January 2011 through April 2011. The brake light may not illuminate when the front brake lever is applied because the activating mechanism in the front brake switch can bind.
Consequence Summary:
When the motorcycle operator applies only the front brake, the brake light may not come on to alert other drivers, increasing the risk of a crash.
Corrective Summary:
Yamaha dealers will install a new front brake switch free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during July 2011. Owners may contact Yamaha at 1-800-962-7926.
