Component: SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC:ANTILOCK:ABS WARNING LIGHT

Potential Number Of Units Affected: 72

Consequence: THE OPERATOR OF THE MOTORCYCLE WOULD LOSE POWER TO THE ABS WARNING LIGHT AT THE SAME TIME HE LOSES POWER TO THE ABS BRAKE SYSTEM IF THIS PARTICULAR FUSE WOULD BLOW. THE WARNING LIGHT WOULD NOT ILLUMINATE DUE TO THE LOSS OF ELECTRICAL POWER TO THE MOTORCYCLE AND THE OPERATOR MIGHT NOT BE AWARE THAT THE ABS BRAKES WERE NOT FUNCTIONAL. THE GAUGES ARE ALSO WIRED THROUGH THIS FUSE CIRCUIT AND, SHOULD THIS FUSE FLOW, WOULD ALSO CEASE TO FUNCTION.
