Motorcycle Recall

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration released the latest motorcycle recalls this week: Harley is recalling (70) FXDF motorcycles, BMW (1900) RT 1200 Police models, and Yamaha (700) VMX17 models.

2010 Harley-Davidson FXDF Recall:

Harley-Davidson is recalling certain model year 2010 FXDF (Dyna Fat Bob) motorcycles with fork leg assemblies (LH p/n 48622-08, RH p/n 48623-08) manufactured from Feb. 19 through Feb, 29. These fork leg assemblies may have been incorrectly assembled, using the wrong springs.

With the wrong springs, suspension will suffer, thus reducing traction. Also, while parked the wrong springs may affect parking stability.

Harley will notify owners and dealers, and repair the effected motorcycles free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on July 26, 2019. Owners may contact H-D at 1-414-343-4056.

2005-2009 BMW R 1200 RT Recalls:

BMW is recalling certain 2005 through 2009 R 1200 RT Police motorcycles manufactured from April 2005 through September 2009. The bracket that supports the audible signaling device can break, falling to the roadway, causing obstacles for the rider or other drivers.

BMW has not yet provided a remedy plan, but owners can contact BMW at 1-800-525-7414.

2009 Yamaha VMX 17 Recalls:

Yamaha is recalling certain model year 2009 VMX 17 motorcycles manufactured from June 2008 through March 2009. There could be excessive electrical resistance in the ground wider from the accelerator position sensor (APS) and the throttle position sensor (TPS) due to a crimped connection.

These crimped connections can cause unstable idle speed, which may result in a crash.

Yamaha will notify owners and dealers, and repair the motorcycles free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on July 28. Owners may contact Yamaha at 1-800-962-7926.

For additional information on any of these recalls, owners contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 or go to safecar.gov.
