Motorcycle Recall - Harley-Davidson

NHTSA Campaign ID:  10V329000
Component:  Structure: Body
Manufacturer:  Harley-Davidson Motor Company
Recall Date: 07/19/2010
Potential Number of Units Affected: 70
Defect Summary:
Harley-Davidson is recalling certain model year 2010 FXDF motorcycles with fork leg assemblies (lH P/N 48622-08, RH P/N 48623-08) manufactured from February 29 through February 9, 2010. (Editor's Note: Yes, these dates don't make sense. I tried calling all the numbers in this recall and got nowhere. Best thing to do is just call the H-D number listed below with your VIN number handy.) These fork leg assemblies may have been incorrectly assembled using the wrong springs.
Consequence Summary:
Motorcycles containing the wrong springs will have reduced suspension effectiveness which may result in reduced traction on irregular road surfaces, and will also have a different lean angle when parked on the side stand, possibly affecting parking stability. This condition may increase the risk of a crash.
Corrective Summary:
Harley-Davidson will notify owners and dealers will repair the affected motorcycles free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on or about July 26, 2010. Owners may contact Harley-Davidson at 1-414-343-4056.
