An NHTSA recall affects more than 250,000 Harley-Davidson motorcycles from The Moto Company’s Touring, CVO Touring and Trike model lines.
Excessive heat from the exhaust system is to blame for the recall. The heat could cause the rear brake light switch to malfunction. The NHTSA recall states: “The excessive heat may cause the switch to not activate the brake lamp or activate the brake lamp when no brake is applied and/or cause a brake fluid leak at the brake light switch, affecting rear brake performance.”
Owners of the affected models will be contacted by Harley-Davidson. They will be entitled to free installation of a new brake light switch at dealers. The recall is expected to begin at the end of October. Riders can contact Harley-Davidson directly for more information at 1-414-343-4056.
