Potential Units Affected: 1759
Problem: Harley Davidson is recalling 1,759 model year 2009 FLTRSE3 motorcycles equipped with blade rear wheel accessory kits. Some wheels within the subject population underwent a secondary heat treatment process. As a result of this secondary heat treatment, these wheels may have a crack. If a crack is present, it could result in wheel failure during use, possibly leading to a crash, which could result in injury or death of the rider.
Corrective Action: Dealers will remove the rear wheel and inspect the manufacturer's code. Wheels that underwent a secondary heat treatment process will be replaced with a wheel provided in the recall repair kit. Wheels that do not have the suspected code will be re-installed. This service will be performed free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on or before July 20, 2009. Owners may contact Harley Davidson at 1-414-343-4056.
