- The recall exercise affects 23,746 units of the premium cruisers
- The issue is with a fuel rail that may contact other components
- The bike maker also retails the models in India
The recall affects the 2014-2017 model year Chief range including the Chief Classic, Chief Dark Horse, Vintage, Chieftan, Chieftan Dark Horse as well as the Springfield, and Roadmaster cruisers. The bikes were manufactured between 15th April 2013 to 15th July 2016.
Considering that the leaking fuel could be ignited by a spark, resulting in a fire. Indian Motorcycle decided to initiate the recall. That said, the company has not reported any injuries due to the issue.
Furthermore, Indian will notify affected owners, while dealers will install a bracket that will limit movement of the fuel rail. The process as is with voluntary recalls, will be free of charge and will commence this month.
That being said, Indian is yet to confirm if the models sold exported to other countries will also be affected by the recall exercise. The bike maker also retails the models in India which are imported as Completely Built Units (CBUs) from the US.
Earlier this year, Indian Motorcycle had issued a recall for 18,000 models for an ignition issue that may see unburnt fuel pass through the exhaust system during a misfire, which could result in the exhaust temperature increasing and potentially causing a fire. Interestingly, the manufacturing period was the same for those models as well.
