Summary:
      Indian Motorcycle Company "Indian" is recalling certain 2014-2019 Chief, Chieftain, Roadmaster, and Springfield motorcycles. The gear position switch contacts may oxidize, causing the gear position display to inaccurately show that the motorcycle is in neutral when it is actually in gear.
Consequence:
      If the transmission is not in neutral when the motorcycle is started, the motorcycle may move unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
      Indian will notify owners, and as an interim repair, dealers will clean the gear position switch. The switch will be replaced, once parts are available, currently expected to be in the first few months of 2020. These repairs will be performed free of charge. Indian issued an interim to owners on November 6, 2019. Owners may contact Indian customer service at 1-877-204-3697. Indian's number for this recall is I-19-03.
