Harley Davidson has ordered a huge recall of motorcycles with anti-lock brakes that were made from July 1,2013 to May 7, 2014. The recall includes 2014 Touring and CVO Touring motorcycles. Problems with the brake system have already caused five motorcycle crashes with minor injuries.
The issue is with the front brake line. It can get pinched between the frame and the fuel tank, which increases pressure in the brake fluid. This could cause the front wheel to lock up when you are riding and has the potential to cause serious injuries.
Dealers are replacing the faulty brake lines free of charge and installing straps to ensure the new brake lines stay in place.
Earlier in the year, Harley Davidson recalled over 18,000 Breakout and CVO Breakout bikes because of defects in the fuel range indicator. Last fall Harley also recalled 29,000 bikes that had hydraulic clutch system issues.
