Indian Motorcycle Company is recalling 3,341 model year 2018 Indian Chief, Chief Classic, Chief Dark Horse, Chief Vintage, Chieftain, Chieftain Classic, Chieftain Dark Horse, Chieftain Elite, Chieftain Limited, Springfield, and Springfield Dark Horse motorcycles.

Corrosion may develop within the right combination switch, potentially resulting in the motorcycle starting without the user's intent if the key fob is near the motorcycle and the required safety interlock conditions are met.

If the motorcycle starts unintentionally and is parked in an enclosed space, exposure to carbon monoxide may increase the risk of injury.

What to do

Indian will notify owners, and dealers will replace the right hand combination switch, free of charge.

The recall was expected to begin April 19, 2018.

Owners may contact Indian customer service at 1-877-204-3697. Indian's number for this recall is I-18-04.
