2001 Victory V92DC and 2000-2001 V92SC and V92C Motorcycles
Detroit, MI (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has published a recall affecting certain 2001
Victory V92DC and 2000-2001 V92SC and V92C motorcycles manufactured between January 2000
and February 2001.
On certain motorcycles, threaded fasteners used to
attach the brake rotors to the front and rear wheel assemblies could fail due to hydrogen
The failure could occur under the head of the
fastener if a crack develops, causing a loss of clamp load and possible separation of the
head from the threaded body of the fasteners. A fastener failure will reduce the strength
of the bolt assembly and could affect the braking characteristics of the vehicle.
2,039 motorcycles are affected by this recall.
Dealers will replace the rotor bolts.
The manufacturer has reported that owner
notification began May 25, 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a
reasonable time should contact Polaris/Victory at 1-763-542-0500.
