According to a report submitted by Aprilia to the NHTSA, a process used by a parts supplier to straighten the rods to meet specifications introduced stresses which affected their strength and reliability.
"Hey Cletus, this-here batcha rods is all bent an' stuff - waddyer want me t' do 'bout it? Jus' trow 'em away?"

"Nah, Bubba - jus' bang on 'em wit' yer 10lb-er 'til they is straight, an' ship 'em on down the line.........."

355 affected units. And we thought Victory sales sucked.
