Defect: These motorcycles were
built with a fuel tank vent fitting that could be plugged, allowing fuel to overflow from
the carburetor. This could result in a fire.
Remedy: Dealers will inspect the
fuel tank vent fitting and, if it is plugged, will correct this condition. Owner
notification began in late July 1999. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a
reasonable time should contact Harley-Davidson at 1-414-342-4680.
