Nearly 7,000 Harley Davidson Motorcycles Recalled
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced that Harley Davidson voluntarily recalled over 7,000 motorcycles for trouble with the license plate bracket assembly’s mounting screws.
The mounting screws may loosen causing the assembly to separate from the rear fender. Separation could lead to contact with the rear tire and the license plate bracket may end up rotating, potentially damaging the rear brake line, reports The Milwaukee Business Journal.
No accidents or injuries related to the problem have been reported so far.
Over 2,500 Harley Davidson Motorcycles sold in the U.S. and 6,663 motorcycles sold worldwide are affected by the recall, according to the Journal. The recalled motorcycles were manufactured from June 2011 to August 2012 and are from the model years 2012 and 2013 VRSCDX, including those built for international markets through August 23.
The company will be notifying owners and dealers, who will inspect and fix the problem.
