Houston, Texas – Harley-Davidson issued a voluntary recall of more than 65,000 motorcycles after discovering a potential safety issue that increases the risk of accidents. The recall comes in response to a report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that indicates a fastener responsible for securing the rear shock absorber on affected Harley-Davidson motorcycles may break, posing a significant risk to riders.
The malfunction can lead to damage to the rear tire and a subsequent loss of tire pressure. Such a loss of tire pressure increases the likelihood of losing control of the vehicle, which results in a higher risk of accidents.
The following Harley-Davidson Softail motorcycle models and model years are included in the recall:
- 2018-2019 FLDE
- 2018-2021 FLHC
- 2018-2023 FLHCS
- 2018 and 2023 FLHCS ANV
- 2020-2023 FXLRS
- 2022-2023 FXLRST
- 2022 FXRST
Owners of affected motorcycles can expect to receive notification letters in the mail from Harley-Davidson by [Insert Date]. To remedy the issue, Harley-Davidson is offering free repairs at authorized Harley-Davidson dealerships, where they will replace the shock absorber fastener, ensuring the safety of the motorcycles.
In addition to receiving notifications from the manufacturer, concerned vehicle owners can also check for recalls on the NHTSA’s official database. The NHTSA website provides a user-friendly interface that allows owners to search for recalls based on their vehicle identification number (VIN).
