Polaris is recalling certain model year 2009-2011 Indian Motorcycles for the body control module (BCM) which can cause the headlight to turn off in some circumstances. If the headlight switch is slowly moved from one position to another (high beam to low beam or low to high beam), both beams may be on momentarily and the BCM interprets this as an overload condition..
The BCM turns off the headlight until the next time that the key is turned on. The unexpected loss of headlight function could impair a driver’s visability, increasing the risk of a crash.
Dealers will replace the BCM free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during August 201. Owners may contact Polaris at 1-651-408-7579
