Summary:
      Morgan 3 Wheeler Limited "Morgan" is recalling certain model year 2012-2013 three-wheeled motorcycles manufactured between October 2012 and July 2013. The brake fluid reservoir does not have a brake fluid reservoir filling warning statement. Thus, these vehicles fail to conform to the requirement of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard "FMVSS" No. 122, "Motorcycle Brake Systems."
Consequence:
      The operator may not be warned of the brake fluid reservoir filling requirements, which may result in a reduction of brake performance, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
      Morgan will notify owners and dealers will apply a brake fluid reservoir filling warning label, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Morgan's US Agent at 1-505-570-1845.
