Summary:
      VEHICLE DESCRIPTION: MOTORCYCLES. THREADED FASTENERS USED TO ATTACH THE BRAKE ROTORS TO THE FRONT AND REAR WHEEL ASSEMBLIES COULD FAIL DUE TO HYDROGEN EMBRITTLEMENT. 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.
Consequence:
      A FASTENER FAILURE WILL REDUCE THE STRENGTH OF THE BOLT ASSEMBLY AND COULD AFFECT THE BRAKING CHARACTERISTICS OF THE VEHICLE.
Remedy:
      DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE ROTOR BOLTS. OWNER NOTIFICATION IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING MAY 2001. OWNERS WHO TAKE THEIR VEHICLES TO AN AUTHORIZED DEALER ON AN AGREED UPON SERVICE DATE AND DO NOT RECEIVE THE FREE REMEDY WITHIN A REASONABLE TIME SHOULD CONTACT VICTORY AT 1-763-542-0500.
