FYI Motion Pro recall

Dear Motion Pro Customer:

Motion Pro, Inc., has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in some of its aftermarket motorcycle brake levers with Part Number 14*-0415. However, the problem associated with this defect can occur only when those brake levers are installed on the models of Suzuki and Yamaha street motorcycles identified below.

The Problem

When these Motion Pro brake levers are installed on the motorcycles identified above, they may not properly engage the motorcycle’s stop lamp, due to a possible size mis-match between the brake lever and the stop lamp switch. If there is a mis-match, the stop lamp on the motorcycle will not deactivate when the driver releases the brake lever. If the stop lamp were to remain on, a following driver would not be aware when the brakes on the motorcycle are applied, which could increase the likelihood of a crash.

What You Should Do

If you own one of the motorcycles identified above, you should check to see whether a Motion Pro 14-0415 brake lever has been installed. The lever can be identified by the marking “JY 378” at the base of the lever near the pivot bushing, as shown in the photograph.

If one of these brake levers is installed on your motorcycle, you should immediately check to determine whether the stop lamp on your motorcycle is working properly after the brake lever is activated and released. If it is, you need not take any further action, since there is no size mis*match, and the brake lever will continue to work properly. However, if the stop lamp remains on after the brake lever is released, you should immediately call Motion Pro toll-free at (877) 438*-7831 to obtain a free replacement lever. If you would prefer to have the new part installed rather than install it yourself, Motion Pro will arrange to have it installed for you at no charge. Please note that in some cases we may provide you with a new replacement brake switch that will fix the problem with this lever.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this recall has caused you, but we want to be sure that all Motion Pro brake levers perform properly on the motorcycles for which they are designed.

If you have any questions about this recall, please call us toll-free at (877) 438-7831.
