Issue

On certain motorcycles, electrical system performance could be affected by a weak connection at the crank case, corrosion at the ignition switch due to exposure to corrosive liquids, and/or improper routing causing wiring to wear against the fuel tank. These issues could potentially result in engine stalling and a loss of motive power, inability to shut off the engine with the ignition key, or short circuits potentially resulting in a fire. An increased risk of injury and/or damage to property could result. Correction: Dealers will relocate the crankcase ground wire, inspect the ignition switch wiring and wiring harness in proximity to the fuel tank for corrosion and/or abrasion damage, and repair as necessary. Dealers will also add shielding and abrasion resistant material to protect the wiring.
