Indian Motorcycle Company has issued a recall for certain model year 2014-2017 Chief Classic, Chief Dark Horse, Vintage, Chieftan, Chieftan Dark Horse, Springfield, and Roadmaster motorcycles.

The fuel rail on the affected motorcycles may contact other components and result in a fuel leak. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source increases the risk of a fire.

Approximately 23,746 motorcycles are impacted by this recall—all of which were manufactured between April 15, 2013 and July 15, 2016.

Indian will notify owners, and dealers will install a bracket on the affected motorcycles that will limit movement of the fuel rail. These repairs will be conducted free of charge to owners.

This recall is expected to begin in December 2016. For further details, owners can contact Indian Motorcycle customer service at (877) 204-3697—reference recall number I-16-03.
