NHTSA Issues Recall Notice for Some Indian Motorcycles

A range of Indian model motorcycles are the subject of a recall issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

At the heart of the recall, a fuel rail may contact other components and result in a fuel leak. In the very worst case scenario, a fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source increases the risk of a fire.

The models related to this recall are as follows;

  • Indian Chief Classic
  • Indian Chief Dark Horse
  • Indian Chieftan
  • Indian Chieftan Dark Horse
  • Indian Roadmaster
  • Indian Springfield
  • Indian Vintage

The model years are 2014 through 2017 and if you do own one of these motorcycles, its most likely Indian have already reached out and arranged a visit to the local dealership. Dealers will install a bracket that will limit movement of the fuel rail, free of charge.

If you haven’t heard from Indian or have a question about this recall, Indian customer service can be reached at 1-877-204-3697, the number for this recall being I-16-03.

The recall is expected to begin in December 2016.
