According to a recent AP article, Harley-Davidson is recalling 66,421 of its 2013 Touring and CVO Touring motorcycles because their front wheels can lock-up without warning. Harley-Davidson states that the front brake line can get pinched between the fuel tank and the frame, which can cause the front wheel to lock-up while riding. The problem affects motorcycles with anti-lock brakes built between July 1, 2013 and May 7, 2014.
The Associated Press reports that Harley-Davidson stated it knew of five crashes and two minor injuries related to the defect. Harley-Davidson will be sending out recall notices in July, 2014 and will replace the brake lines for free. And install straps to keep the brake lines in place.
