Risk
The affected motorcycles contain a battery caddy bolt, which may loosen under normal riding conditions. Should this occur, the bolt can back out which allows the battery to shift position and then hold the battery in a position which may allow the battery terminals to contact the metal battery caddy cover and abrade through the positive terminal protective boot. If this occurs, the battery can short against the cover, causing sparks and possibly a fire, which could cause an accident leading to injury or death.
