One recall on Indian Chief motorcycles involves the body control module which can cause the headlight to turn off in some circumstances. If the headlight switch is slowly moved from one position to another (high beam to low beam or vice versa), both beams may illuminate momentarily, which the BCM interprets as an overload condition and then turns off the headlight until the next time the key is turned on. The second Indian recall is in regard of the kickstand that may not fold rearward and upward if it contacts the ground when the motorcycle is moving forward, thus not conforming to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard. both problems will be fixed by Dealers in August.
Polaris has also recalled a backrest support susceptible to separate from 2006 to 2011 Jackpot models with backrests and 2004 to 2011 Kingpin models equipped with double backrests. This defect can possibly cause the passenger to be injured or fall from the bike. seats will be replaced by dealers before Aug. 30.
