Motorcycle Recall - Harley-Davidson

NHTSA Campaign ID:  06V476000
Component:  Electrical System: Alternator/Generator/Regulator
Manufacturer:  Harley-Davidson Motor Company
Recall Date: 12/14/2006
Potential Number of Units Affected: 18,758
Defect Summary:
On certain motorcycles, as a result of a greater body thickness than used in previous model years, the voltage regulator may contact the front fender under certain conditions. In some cases this contact may allow the front fender to catch on the top side of the regulator body which could impede the operator's ability to steer the vehicle.
Consequence Summary:
This could result in a crash which could cause injury or death to the rider.
Corrective Summary:
Dealers will install an intermediate mounting bracket that will relocate the voltage regulator to a position which provides more clearance from the front fender. Harley-Davidson has not yet provided an owner notification schedule. Owners may contact Harley-Davidson at 1-414-343-4056.
