2014-2015 Harley Softail Slim Recall

Harley-Davidson has recalled 4,688 of its 2014 and 2015 FLH Softail Slim motorcycles due to exterior-lighting issues.

The Motor Company says the affected Softail Slim motorcycles, built from March 25, 2013 through Oct. 2, 2014, were built without lamp-outage detection for the front turn signals.

As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 108, “Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment.”

Harley says without the turn signal lamp outage indicator, the rider may not be aware that a front turn signal is not working. And without working front turn signals, there is an increased risk of a crash.

Harley-Davidson will notify owners, and dealers will correct the body control module software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in December 2014. Owners may contact Harley-Davidson customer service at 1-800-258-2464. Harley-Davidson’s number for this recall is 0618.

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