Issue

On certain motorcycles, the brake light switch at the front brake lever may not activate until significant brake lever travel occurs. Failure of the brake lamp to illuminate when a moderate amount of front brake is applied may result in the following road users being unaware of the rider’s intentions, increasing the risk of a crash causing property damage and/or personal injury. Correction: Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the brake light switch for the front brake system.
