Motorcycle Recall - Harley-Davidson

NHTSA Campaign ID:  06V444000
Component:  Electrical System: Battery
Manufacturer:  Harley-Davidson Motor Company
Recall Date: 11/10/2006
Potential Number of Units Affected: 19921
Defect Summary:
On certain motorcycles, a battery caddy bolt may loosen under normal riding conditions. Should this occur, the bolt can back out which allows the battery to shift position and then hold the battery in a position which may allow the battery terminals to contact the metal battery caddy cover and abrade through the positive terminal protective boot.
Consequence Summary:
If this occurs, the battery can short against the cover, causing sparks and possibly a fire.
Corrective Summary:
Dealers will replace the center battery caddy bolt. The recall is expected to begin during November 2006. Owners may contact Harley-Davidson at 1-414-342-4680.
