Harley-Davidson is recalling 250,000 motorcycles around a universe to repair an emanate that can means their brakes to fail.
U.S. reserve regulators pressured a association to take a action, that overs 30 opposite bikes from a 2008-2011 indication years.
The remember notice says that “deposits might form on components within a stop complement if a DOT 4 stop liquid is not transposed for a enlarged duration of time over a 2-year upkeep report specified in a Owner’s Manual.”
The deposits can means a valve in a antilock stop control section to stick. The remember use involves a full flush of a stop fluid, though no tools need to be replaced.
The U.S. group began questioning problems in Jul of 2016 after removing 43 complaints including 3 reports of crashes and dual injuries.
Documents uncover Harley wanted to do a margin use debate instead of a recall, though a supervision refused.
The association says it cooperated with NHTSA and began a consummate analysis of a issue. “Complex, ongoing discussions per what was eventually identified as a upkeep emanate continued with a group by Jan 2018,” Harley-Davidson pronounced in a printed statement.
The remember covers scarcely 175,000 motorcycles in a U.S.
Dealers will flush and reinstate stop liquid starting on Feb. 12.
