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.
