Issue

On certain motorcycles, the side stand interlock switch bolts could loosen and fall out. This could allow the switch to rotate, cutting off the ignition circuit, causing the engine to stall. Engine stalling would result in lost vehicle propulsion which, in conjunction with traffic and road condition, and the rider's reactions, could increase the risk of a crash causing property damage and/or personal injury. Correction: Dealers will replace the side stand interlock switch bolts.
