Recalls in the motorcycle industry occur all too often and cause problems that can lead to serious injuries, or even death, if the proper repairs are not made to your bike. I was amazed at how many bikes have fuel line and brake line hazards that need to be corrected. Or, how about the defect that suddenly turns off the headlight!
Please make it a habit to go to a website a couple times each year to make sure you are not riding a bike that has a serious potential problem. Try this aptly named site to start: www.motorcyclerecall.com
Also, if you own or are considering purchasing a used bike it is possible you will never receive a notice of the recall. Be proactive to protect yourself and your passengers.
