Harley recalling ABS bikes
Harley Davidson recalls motorcycles with faulty Brake lines
March 3, 2008
The Harley-Davidson motorcycle company is recalling 5,947 2005 to 2007: FLHP, FLHPI, FLHTP, FLHTPI, FLHPE AND FLHPEI Police and Escort motorcycles equipped with anti-lock brake systems.
“Inconsistencies in the routing of the brake lines can cause abrasion of the lines and hoses,” according to the National Highway Traffic Safety administration.
“This condition has caused brake fluid leaks,” according to NHTSA. The safety agency reported on its web site that “loss of brake fluid could lead to loss of brake function, which could lead to a crash resulting in injury or death.”
Harley-Davidson dealers will inspect and replace brake lines on the motorcycles “if necessary,” NHTSA reported. “Brake line retention and clutch cable position devices will also be installed to prevent future abrasion to the brake lines,” the agency said.
The Harley-Davidson recall is expected to begin “on or about March 10, 2008,” according to NHTSA.
Owners may contact Harley at 1-414-342-4680 or NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153).
