Posted in SEE SAFETY Safety Topics for 4/28/18 General Meeting
NEW October 2017
Harley-Davidson is recalling nearly 175,000 motorcycles over fears of brake failure. The campaign covers all anti-lock brake-equipped Touring, CVO Touring and VSRC motorcycles made during the 2008 through 2011 model years. Over 30 different models with ABS are affected, include the Road King, Road Glide, Electra Glide and Street Glide. Some police-spec models are also included in the campaign.
Apparently, a failure to flush brake fluid in accordance with the recommended two-year maintenance schedule may result in a valve within the ABS hydraulic control unit becoming impaired by deposits. Such deposits could lead to malfunctioning brakes, including failure.
According to documents related to the recall filing, owners of affected motorcycles may note that "the front brake lever or rear brake pedal will feel 'hard' and will not be able to be actuated right after startup or right after an ABS event."
