Kuryakyn Holdings, LLC (Kuryakyn) is recalling certain model 1660 (chrome finish) motorcycle backrests manufactured from March 2012 to May 2013; and model 1661 (black and chrome finish) motorcycle backrests manufactured from August 2012 to May 2013.

The backrest pivot screws may come loose and cause the backrest to separate from the motorcycle.

If the backrest separates while the motorcycle is in motion it could cause the rider to lose control and possibly fall off, increasing the risk of injury. Additionally, the separated backrest may be a road hazard.

Kuryakyn will notify customers and instruct them to visit their nearest motorcycle dealer to have replacement screws installed. The service will be done at no cost to the owner.

The recall began on June 13, 2013. Owners may contact Kuryakyn at -866-296-4728.
