Indian Motorcycle Co. has filed a recall notice with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) for 23,746 motorcycles from 2017-2017 for a potential fuel leak caused by fuel rails coming in contact with other components and becoming damaged. Leaking fuel could catch fire “in the presence of an ignition source” states the report. The recall extends to Indian Chief Classic, Chief Dark Horse, Vintage, Chieftain, Chieftain Dark Horse, Springfield and Roadmaster models. Indian Motorcycle dealers have been instructed to remedy the problem by installing a bracket that limits the movement of the fuel rail.
