Harley-Davidson recalls 66,000 motorcycles
Harley-Davidson Motor Company has issued a recall for 66,421 model year 2014 motorcycles because the brake line on the affected units could become pinched between the fuel tank and the frame.
If the brake line is pinched, the front brake fluid pressure will increase, possibly locking up the front wheel.
The recall includes ABS-equipped touring and CVO touring models FLHTK, FLHTKSE, FLHTKSHRINE, FLHTCU, FLHTCUTC, FLHTP, FLHX, FLHXS, FLHXSHRINE, FLHR, FLHRC, FLHP and FLHRSE manufactured July 1, 2013, through May 7, 2014. Harley-Davidson is notifying owners of the affected bikes.
Dealers will inspect the brake lines for damage and replace damaged lines as necessary. One or two cable straps will also be installed to prevent the line from being pinched in the future.
