Oct. 26, 2012—Harley-Davidson Motor recalled 2012–2013 VRSCDX motorcycles that were manufactured from June 14, 2011, through Aug. 1, 2012. The license-plate-bracket assembly’s mounting screws might loosen and the assembly might separate from the rear fender. This condition might lead to contact with the rear tire, which could cause the license plate bracket to rotate. This might damage the rear-brake line. If the license-plate bracket contact with the rear-brake line remains undetected, it could affect rear-brake performance and increase the risk of a crash.
Harley-Davidson will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and repair the affected motorcycles free. The safety recall is expected to begin Nov. 5, 2012.
Owners may contact Harley-Davidson at 414/343-4056. Owners also may call National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888/327-4236 or go to safercar.gov.
