Harley Davidson has issued a recall for over 11 thousand FLSTSB FXSTSSE2 and FXSTSSE3 models for a problem with the brakes. Please read below for further details.
Manufacturer: Harley Davidson
NHTSA Campaign Number: 09V211000
Potential Units Affected: 11005
Problem: Harley Davidson is recalling 11,005 FLSTSB, FXSTSSE2, and FXSTSSE3 model year 2008 and 2009 motorcycles. The acorn stud at the brake reaction link may fall out during use. If this occurs, the front brake and fender assembly would no longer be adequately retained. This condition could lead to a crash and potential injury to or death of the rider.
Corrective Action: Dealers will replace the existing acorn stud with a new acorn stud and retaining clip. The recall is expected to begin during June 2009. Owners may contact Harley Davidson at 1-414-343-4056.
