2011 Victory Cross Country Recall

Victory Motorcycle Recalls

Victory is recalling 840 Cross Country motorcycles due to incorrect machining on the handlebar clamps and risers.

The 2011 Cross Country recall is for motorcycles built from Jan. 1 through April 11, 2011.

Polaris, owner of Victory, says due to the incorrect machining on the motorcycle, the handlebars may slip in the clamps, causing the rider lose control, increasing the risk of a crash.

Polaris will notify owners, and dealers will test and replace defective riser/clamp assemblies involved in the recalls, free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during June 2011. Owners may contact Victory consumer service at 1-888-704-5290.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or visit safercar.com.
