Recall: Harley-Davidson Night Rod Special

10/26/2012 @ 8:24 pm, by Jensen Beeler2 COMMENTS

Harley-Davidson is recalling 2,798 units of its 2012-2013 Harley-Davidson VRSCDX Night Rod Special motorcycles because of a loose license plate bracket. If the license plate bracket becomes loose, it could twist and interfere with the rear tire, or even slice the rear brake line, which could result in brake failure.

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 5th, 2012. Owners may contact Harley-Davidson at 1-414-343-4056. As always the NHTSA is available at 1-888-327-4236 and

In other news, screwdrivers and Locktite are readily available at your local hardware store.

    But if someone did the repair themselves, then they wouldn’t have the satisfaction of saying that their bike was serviced by certified Hardley-Ableson mechanics.

    why dont they just keep them, then no one will get hurt. Then could then recycle them and make 3 regular motorcycles out of each li
    ump of metal and chrome.
