Harley-Davidson Touring Motorcycle Recall

Due to possible pinching issues with the front-brake lines, Harley-Davidson has recalled 66,421 of its 2014 Touring and CVO Touring motorcycles with ABS.

These bikes include the Street Glide, Road King, Electra Glide Ultra Limited, Electra Glide Ultra Classic, CVO Limited, CVO Road King, Police and Shrine editions, the twin-cooled Electra Glide Ultra Classic and the Road King Classic (non-US market).

Harley-Davidson says the front brake line could become pinched between the frame and the fuel tank, increasing brake-fluid pressure. If this occurs, the front could lock up, increasing the risk of a crash.

Harley first realized the issue when a police edition was getting serviced. Then, warranty claims came pouring in. To fix the problem, Harley began installing cable straps to keep the fuel-line from being pinched; this happened on all bikes built from Oct. 14, 2013, and on. Further issues were discovered, and Harley began fixing them right away.

But due to additional claims that included crashes, Harley initiated the recall.

Harley-Davidson says dealers will inspect all recalled units, and fix any damaged front brake lines. The dealers will also install the one or two cable straps needed to prevent any pinching.

    Not surprising. I just rented a new Harley Davidson full dresser and it handled poorly, very uncomfortable because of the heat it pumped off the engine (They cant get their act together and build a liquid cooled engine?), and accelerated like a bad 4 cylinder car. Why people buy these because it says Harley on the side of it I have no idea.

    Harley has made a liquid cooled engine (a great one, in fact) The Revolution, and its on the V-Rod. I own one and love it – 214, 000 miles on it and it runs as well today as it did when I bought it in 2004. Harley could build a modern bike, but the “old timey” Harley faithful has a fit every time they try to update, so that keeps them in the past. Overall they make great bikes, but for a narrowing crowd. As the “faithful” age, I think the younger riders will insist on updated tech, which Harley has shown to be more than capable of doing.
