recall-1

Hey guys, below is the list of recalls that I have gathered from the 1st of August. In additions to motorcycle recalls a couple helmets are on the list as well.

Be aware that this list is for the United States, there is no way I could cover the entire world. But in the world of global manufacturing, if it is being recalled in one country there is a good chance it is under recall in others.

If you are US based use the NHTSA website www.safercar.gov. Enter your VIN number to see if your motorcycle is affected by the recall.
