Recall Details
On certain motorcycles, an incorrect gearbox detent spring could allow the transmission to inadvertently shift out of gear while the vehicle is underway. This would result in a loss of vehicle propulsion which, in conjunction with traffic and road conditions, and the rider’s reactions, could increase the risk of a crash causing property damage and/or personal injury. Correction: Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the gearbox detent spring.
