Harley-Davidson issues a recall for certain 2012-2013 models

October 25, 2012

Vehicle Make / Model:     Model Year(s):
     H-D / VRSCDX     2012-2013
Manufacturer: HARLEY-DAVIDSON MOTOR COMPANY Report Receipt Date: OCT 18, 2012
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 12V503000 NHTSA Action Number: N/A
Component: EQUIPMENT
Potential Number of Units Affected: 2,798
Summary:
 Harley-Davidson Motor Company (Harley-Davidson) is recalling all model year 2012 and certain model year 2013 VRSCDX motorcycles manufactured from June 14, 2011, through August 1, 2012. The license plate bracket assembly's mounting screws may loosen and the assembly may separate from the rear fender. This condition may lead to contact with the rear tire which could cause the license plate bracket to rotate, possibly damaging the rear brake line.
Consequence:
 If the license plate bracket contact with the rear brake line remains undetected, it may affect rear brake performance, increasing the risk of a crash, which could lead to injury or death of the rider.
Remedy:
 Harley-Davidson will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and repair any affected motorcycles free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on, or about, November 5, 2012. Owners may contact Harley-Davidson at 1-414-343-4056.
Notes:
 This is Harley-Davidson recall 0148. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
