Potential Number of Units Affected: 26,949

Dates of Manufacture: October – November 2001

Defect: On certain motorcycles, the clips that retain the wiring for the front fender tip light can become detached from the fender, causing the wires to fray and short. This could cause the lighting system fuse to blow, leaving the vehicle without an operational front fender tip light, headlight, taillight, running lights, and passing lamps (if equipped).

Remedy: Dealers will replace the fender tip light wiring harness retention clips, and inspect and replace, if necessary, any damaged wiring harnesses. The manufacturer reported that owner notification was expected to begin during February 2002. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Harley-Davidson at 1-414-342-4680.
