Harley Davidson Recall

Attention Harley Davidson Motorcycle Owners

On October 19, 2011, Harley Davidson recalled about 308,000 motorcycles due to an issue with the rear brake light switch which can cause brake light and brake function failure and increase chances of a motorcycle crash. If you have sustained an injury caused by this defect:

  1. Contact Thomas J Henry immediately.
  2. Preserve evidence.
  3. Do not alter evidence.
  4. Do not turn over any evidence to Harley Davidson.
  5. Do not give any recorded or written statement to Harley Davidson, insurance companies, or anyone else.

ABOUT THE HARLEY DAVIDSON MOTORCYCLE RECALL

According to the official recall notice, 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. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) warns that any of these conditions can increase the possibility of a motorcycle crash.
