Harley-Davidson is issuing a recall on its 2009 & 2010 touring line made between June 6, 2008, and Nov. 19, 2009, which consists of 111,569 motorcycles in total. The recall is due to concerns over the fuel tank mounts on these motorcycles, which might distort in a collision, possibly leaking fuel, and thus causing a fire.

Affected Harley-Davidson owners may call (414) 343-4056 for more information, or visit the NHTSA’s website at safecar.gov. The safety recall is expected to begin around Dec. 14. H-D dealers will install left and right front braces to reinforce the front mount, free of charge.

No word on how much the recall will cost Harley-Davidson, but on the day the NHTSA recall was issued, HOG stock opened at nearly 2% lower than on the previous day.
