Indian Recalls 2009 – 2011 Models

PAR Cycle CanadaPosted on

 

No sooner has Polaris taken over the Indian motorcycle brand than Transport Canada issues a recall on a number of the classic marque’s recent models. At issue are a faulty headlight switch and sidestand. Full details from Transport Canada below.

Transport Canada Recall # 2011273

Recall Details

 On certain motorcycles, if the headlight switch is slowly moved from one position to another (high beam to low beam, or low beam to high beam), both headlamps would be ON simultaneously during the transition phase. This could cause the Body Control Module (BCM) to falsely identify an overload condition, and attempt to protect the circuit by removing voltage from the headlight circuit. Loss of headlamp illumination, should it occur during a rainy day, or during hours of darkness, could compromise the rider’s ability to see the road and its users, which could result in a crash causing property damage and/or personal injury. Correction: Dealers will replace the BCM with an updated version.

On certain motorcycles, the side stand may not retract if contact is made with the ground while the vehicle is in motion.
