Harley-Davidson Inc. is recalling 111,569 motorcycles after discovering during testing that the motorcycles’ front fuel tank mounts may leak as a result of a front-end crash, creating a greater hazard for fuel leakage and subsequent ignition after a crash.
The recall affects motorcycles manufactured between June 6, 2008 and November 19, 2009. Furthermore, the recall also affects some 2009 and 2010 touring bikes including the CVO Touring and Trike models.
As part of the recall, dealers have agreed to install left and right front braces to reduce the amount of leakage that may occur as the result of a front-end crash. Consumers affected by the recall are eligible for the installation free-of-charge and may contact Harley Davidson for more information.
