In what will be a huge recall for a low volume production iconic US company, Harley-Davidson has issued a recall for 19,015 motorcycles that may have issues with thread corrosion on the front brake master cylinder brake line banjo bolt. The recall affects a number of Softail and Dyna models made between August 22, 2011 and February 24, 2012.

Namely, the affected models are 2012 model year FXST103, FLSTC, FLSTC103, FLSTF, FLSTF103, FXDL, FXDWG, FXDWG103, FXDC, FXDB, FLSTN, FLSTN103, FLSTC103Shrine, FLSTFB, FLSTFB103, FXS, FXS103, FLS, FLS103, FLD, FLD103, and FXDF. If the brake line threads corrode, a sudden loss of brake fluid could result, which could cause a loss of the front brakes and thus increase the risk of a crash.

Harley-Davidson will notify affected owners, and have dealers flush and inspect the front brake master cylinder. If necessary, dealers will replace the master cylinder, free of charge. This recall is expected to begin on January 14, 2015.

We are yet to find out if this recall will affect the motorcycles sold by Harley in India or not. We sure do hope that it is not a case, though the Softail and the Dyna are coming via CKD route, there might be some chances that this recall might affect the customers in India too. Be with us as we get more details about the same.
