NHTSA Campaign ID Component Manufacturer Recall Date Units Potentially Affected
08V129000 Structure Big Bear American Made Choppers, Inc. 03/20/2008 351
Defect Summary
Big Bear Chopper is recalling 351 model year 2004-2005 Venom and Devil’s Advocate Choppers and 2005 Sled Choppers. Some motorcycles may have inadequate weld penetration between the neck, backbone, and down tubes of the frame. High loads created when riding on rough road surfaces, structural modification made to the frame by owners, and/or failure to maintain the specified torque setting of the top motor mount may cause the affected welds to crack.
Consequence Summary
The welded area could break without warning resulting in neck separation and front-end collapse. This could result in a crash.
Corrective Summary
Dealers will inspect and maintain the proper torque of the top motor mount or modify the frame as necessary. The recall began on March 26, 2008. Owners may contact Big Bear Chopper at 1-909-878-4340.
