Another Harley Safety Recall
July 12, 2014



On July 10, USA Today reported the following recall of certain 2014 Touring and CVO Touring motorcycles:

Chris Woodyard, USA TODAY (http://www.usatoday.com/staff/716/chris-woodyard) 8:13 a.m. EDT July 10, 2014

At the height of riding season, Harley-Davidson has ordered up a big recall of near-new motorcycles.

Harley is recalling 66,421 Touring and CVO Touring motorcycles from the 2014 model year. It warns that the front wheels can lock up without warning. The recall applies to bikes with anti-lock brakes made between July 1, 2013, and May 7.

The flaw has resulted in five crashes, with two minor injuries.

The snafu occurs when a brake line in front is pinched between the fuel tank and the frame, causing the front brake fluid pressure to increase and increasing the risk that the front wheel could lock up while riding. Dealers will replace brake lines and install straps to keep them in place.
