Recall Details
On certain motorcycles, an incorrect washer was installed under the neutral switch during vehicle assembly. This could allow the neutral indicator light to remain illuminated when a gear is selected. As a result, the vehicle operator could mistakenly believe that the transmission is in the neutral position and release the clutch, allowing the vehicle to suddenly surge forward. This could cause a crash resulting in property damage and/or personal injury. Correction: Dealers will replace the neutral switch washer.
