Issue

On certain motorcycles, the front brake master cylinder may have been damaged during manufacturing which could lead to premature wear of the sealing cup. This could result in degraded front brake performance, which would increase stopping distances and could affect braking control, increasing the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property. Correction: Dealers will inspect the front brake master cylinder, and will replace it as necessary. Note: In the interim, owners are advised to stop riding their motorcycles until the defect has been repaired.
