Harley Davidson Motor Co—2014 Touring & Touring CVO ABS Brake Line
What are the defects?
Harley-Davidson Motor Company, lnc. has determined that some of these motorcycles may have been assembled with a front brake line in a position where it could become pinched between the fuel tank and the frame, either at original assembly or in subsequent service activity. If this condition remains undetected it could cause front brake fluid pressure to increase while riding, possibly resulting in a front wheel lock-up.
What are the hazards?
If the defect occurs, it could increase the chance of an accident occurring.
What should consumers do?
The remedy is first to confirm that the motorcycle is affected by this recall. If the motorcycle is affected, dealers will remove the fuel tank and inspect for brake line damage and replace damaged lines as necessary. Dealers will also install one or two cable straps from dealer inventory as required, depending on when the motorcycles were built, for brake line retention.
Harley Davidson is contacting all affected owners.
