Harley Davidson Recall- Brake Failure

susan_harr5 years ago

Harley Davidson has recalled about 308,000 motorcycles due to an issue with the rear brake light switch, which can cause brake light and brake function failure. The rear brake light switch may be exposed to excessive heat from the exhaust which can either cause the brake lights not to turn on, or cause them to turn on when the brakes are not being pressed. Heat from the exhaust can also cause brake fluid to leak at the break light switch, causing partial or complete brake failure. According to the recall notice, any of these conditions can increase the possibility of a motorcycle crash.
