What are the defects?

These motorcycles may have a poor seal at the fuel pump inlet. This could allow an interruption to the fuel supply under acceleration at low fuel levels, possibly before the low fuel light indicator has illuminated.

What are the hazards?

If this condition remains undetected, under acceleration with the fuel level below 3.2 Litres, the motorcycle may briefly hesitate and then restore power abruptly, possibly leading to a loss of control.

What should consumers do?

Consumers should contact their nearest Harley Davidson dealer to confirm whether their motorcycle is affected and to arrange for repairs to be carried out.
