    Recall Details
    On certain motorcycles, one or more of the bolts that connect the right-side pivot pin to the frame may not have been tightened to specification due to a manufacturing issue. This could result in the pivot pin loosening, which could affect vehicle handling and stability and could result in loss of control, increasing the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property. Correction: Dealers will remove and clean the pivot pin bolts, and apply an adhesive and ensure proper torque of the bolts.
