Harley-Davidson Recalling 66,421 Motorcycles

Harley-Davidson is recalling 66,421 Touring and CVO Touring motorcycles from the 2014 model year because their front wheels can lock up without warning. Motorcycles with anti-lock brakes built between July 1, 2013, and May 7, 2014, are included in the recall. Harley-Davidson Inc. says the front brake line can get pinched between the fuel tank and the frame. That could cause front brake fluid pressure to increase, increasing the risk that the front wheel could lock up while riding. The company knows of five crashes and two minor injuries related to the defect, which it discovered last fall through warranty claims. Harley-Davidson will notify owners later this month. Dealers will replace the brake lines for free and attach straps to hold them in place. Last October, Harley-Davidson recalled about 29,000 bikes because of a hydraulic clutch system problem.
