A recent recall by Harley-Davidson involves 66,421 motorcycles being recalled for repair. After discovering that there is a flaw in the front brake line, Harley is asking owners of Touring models and CVO Touring models from 2014 to bring their bikes in for repair. The models that are affected have anti-lock brakes made between July 1, 2013 and May 7th.
The front brake line can get pinched between the fuel tank and the frame of the motorcycles which can cause a drop in brake fluid pressure. This drop in pressure can cause the front tire to lock up suddenly. The recall has already caused at least five accidents and two injuries.
With the summer months in full swing, this recall may put a damper in many Harley owners' plans. Harley requests that owners take the bikes in so dealers can replace the brake lines and secure them in place.
