Issue

On some motorcycles, small stones or other road debris could become trapped between the brake pedal and brake pedal cover. This could cause the rear brake, and on some 2010 to 2012 models (ZG1400C; Concours14 ABS) both front and rear brakes, to drag and overheat. This could lead to brake damage, wheel lockup or braking system failure, possibly resulting in a crash causing property damage and/or personal injury. Correction: Dealers will remove the brake guard and replace the master cylinder rod end. Note: This recall supersedes recall 2009012.
