With the summer riding season in full swing, Harley-Davidson has announced the recall of 66,421 motorcycles. The 2014 Touring and CVO Touring models are being recalled due to a flaw that can cause the front wheel to lock up. Any bikes of this model that have anti-lock brakes made between July 1, 2013 and May 7 are affected by this recall.
If the front brake lines on these models gets pinched between the fuel tank and the bike’s frame, the front brake fluid can lose pressure. This loss of pressure can cause the front wheel to lock up while riding and can send the driver flying.
This flaw in the brake line has already caused five accidents and two injuries. The recall ensures that dealers will replace the brakes lines and install safety straps in order to ensure that they don’t move and get pinched again.
