12V031000 Service Brakes, Air: Antilock: ABS Warning Light Wildfire Motors, INC 01/30/2012 202
Defect Summary
Wildfire is recalling certain model year 2009 WF650-C motorcycles, manufactured from April 2008 through January 2009 for failing to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 122, “Motorcycle Brake System.” As built, these motorcycles have a single brake fluid reservoir with a single filler opening and lack the required reservoir labeling. Warning lamps indicating brake failure are also absent.
Consequence Summary
Without the required brake reservoir label, operators may improperly maintain the brake system. With only a single brake fluid reservoir for the entire brake system and no brake failure indicator lamp, in the event of any brake fluid leak, the entire brake system could fail without warning, increasing the risk of a crash.
Corrective Summary
Wildfire will contact owners, and dealers will correct the motorcycles, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during March 2012. Owners may contact Wildfire at 740-283-6540.
