The recall rumors about the Harley-Davidson Touring and CVO Touring bikes have come to fruition as the Motor Company recalled more than 66,000 2014 models because of potential issues in the brake lines which can lead to the front wheel locking up.
The front wheels of the bikes can lock up without notice when the front brake line is caught between the vehicle’s fuel tank and frame. The pinched line can cause a build-up of brake fluid pressure that locks the front wheel, the company says.
If you have a 2014 Touring or CVO Touring, or a bike with anti-lock brakes built between July 1, 2013 – May 7, 2014, you can check on the H-D website to see if your bike has been recalled.
Harley-Davidson will also contact individual owners and will replace the brake lines for free on affected bikes.
Touring motorcycle models FLHTCU, FLHTK, FLHTP, FLHX, FLHXS, FLHTKSE and FLHRSE, plus Softail CVOs and Trikes, models FLHTCUTG, FXSBSE and FLSTNSE, built between May 3, 2013, and Oct. 14, 2013.
