2013-2014 Harley-Davidson Breakout and CVO Breakout Recall

Harley-Davidson has recalled 9,102 of its 2013-2014 Breakout (FXSB) and CVO Breakout (FXSBSE) motorcycles due to fuel-gauge inaccuracies. The effected models were manufactured March 20, 2012 – March 10, 2014.

The Motor Company says suspension variances may affect the gas tank mounting angle, causing inaccurate readings of the fuel-level sensor.

Harley says the gauge inaccuracy may cause the motorcycle to run out of fuel unexpectedly, possibly even before the Low Fuel Warning lamp illuminates. The lack of fuel would cause the motorcycle to stall, increasing the risk of a crash, Harley reports.

Harley-Davidson says will notify owners, and dealers will update the software to recalibrate the fuel level sensor signal, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in late April 2014. Owners may contact Harley-Davidson at 1-800-258-2464.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
