What are the defects?

Models equipped with Anti-Lock Brakes (ABS) may experience decreased brake performance resulting from the presence of air in the brake circuit. This may cause a soft brake lever/pedal feel and a decrease in brake performance.

What are the hazards?

A decrease in brake performance may result in increased stopping distance which may increase the risk of a crash and/or injury.

What should consumers do?

Consumers should contact their nearest authorised Indian Motorcycle dealer to schedule an appointment to have the recall repair performed. Repairs must be performed only by an authorised Indian Motorcycle dealer.

Consumers are requested to conduct a Pre-Ride Inspection:

Please perform the following pre-ride brake inspection prior to riding your motorcycle to the dealership:

1. Press down on the rear brake pedal. It should move freely and smoothly. The pedal should feel firm and continue to feel firm until released.
2. Release the pedal. It should return to its rest position quickly when released.

Repeat Pre-Ride Inspection for the front brake lever. Ensure the lever feels firm and that it returns to rest position quickly when released.

If either the front or rear brake fails to perform as stated or travels too far before beginning to engage the brake, please contact your Indian Motorcycle dealer directly.
