Harley-Davidson recalls more than 66,000 bikes


A problem with the front brake line on touring bike models has forced Harley-Davidson to order a recall of 66,421 motorcycles. The recall effects Touring and CVO Touring motorcycles from the 2014 model year. Bikes equipped with anti-lock brakes that were built between July 1, 2013, and May 7, 2014, are included in the recall.

It is possible for the front brake line to get pinched between the fuel tank and the frame. The company says that could cause the front wheel to lock up while riding.

The company has a fix- dealers will replace the brake lines and attach straps to hold them in place. The fix is free to owners.

Harley-Davidson will notify owners later this month.
