Summary:
      Supreme Corporation "Supreme" is recalling certain model year 2006-2014 Senator, Senator II, Candidate, Candidate II, Senator HD, and Sentinel transit buses manufactured January 2, 2006, to April 30, 2014, equipped with certain model S2005, S2010, S5005, S5010, S5505, and S5510 wheelchair lifts manufactured by Ricon Corporation after January 1, 2006. The platform side plate of the affected wheelchair lifts may crack.
Consequence:
      If the platform side plates crack, the lift platform can separate from the lift and come to rest against the vehicle's lift door. When the doors are opened, the platform may fall out, increasing the risk of injury to the lift operator.
Remedy:
      Supreme will notify owners to take buses to a Ricon dealer or service center who will install supplemental platform support bumpers. Any platform that has already started cracking will be replaced, free of charge. The recall began in November 2014. Owners may contact Supreme customer service at 1-800-642-4889 or Ricon customer service at 1-800-322-2884.
