SEPTEMBER 2007 RECALL INFORMATION

Big Dog has recalled 104 MY 2008 Mastiff, K-9, Ridgeback motorcycles. The fuel line can potentially contact heated metal parts of the motorcycle and melt. This condition could occur without any prior warning and could result in fuel leakage. Fuel leakage, in the presence of an ignition source, could result in a fire. Dealers have replaced the fuel line with a new fuel line that has higher thermal resistance properties. Also the new fuel lines have been rerouted to further reduce exposure to heated metal. All motorcycles have been repaired.

International is recalling 294 MY 2008 IC FE school and commercial buses. The routing of the service and parking brake rubber drop hoses to the rear axle's brake components may bring them too close to the exhaust tail pipe. The rubber hoses may melt if routed too close to the tail pipe causing either of the two possibilities: 1) an air leak on the parking brake hose may cause the parking brakes to slowly apply while depleting both the primary and secondary air circuits. Even though the air pressure gauge and low air pressure warning buzzer would sound, these conditions could cause the bus to slow down or stop unexpectedly which may result in a vehicle crash; and 2) an air leak on the service brake hose may result in extended stopping distances while also depleting the primary air tank possibly resulting in a vehicle crash without warning. Dealers will inspect the rubber brake hoses to determine their proximity to the tail pipe. Any hose found to be closer than 4" will be replaced and both hoses will then be re-routed to ensure proper distance from the tail pipe. The inspection and repair will be performed. The recall is expected to begin on or about November 16, 2007.

During the coating process of the fuel filler tube assembly, a sufficient coating may not have been applied at the lower mounting bracket. This could result in an opening in the coating, which can allow water to enter and make contact with the bare metal of the tube. This may result in surface rust but not perforation of the tube. However, in those areas of the country, which use heavy concentrations of road salt in the winter, if a mixture of snow/water and salt makes contact with the bare metal, corrosion may occur to a degree, which results in perforation of the tube. In this case fuel leakage may occur when filling the tank. Fuel leakage, in the presence of an ignition source, could result in a fire. Dealers will replace the fuel filler tube assembly with a new one with an improved coating process. The recall is expected to begin on or about November 26, 2007.
