Harley-Davidson Motor Company Recalls Dyna Glide
Detroit, MI (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has published a recall affecting
2001 Harley-Davidson Dyna Glides manufactured between July 2000- July
Number Involved: 25,711
Defect: Certain motorcycles were built with a fuel hose that could come off
the carburetor. Should this occur, fuel could spill. In the presence of an
ignition source, this could result in a fire.
Remedy: Dealers will inspect the motorcycle to insure that the fuel hose is
installed correctly on the carburetor. If the fuel hose is installed
incorrectly, the dealer will correct this condition. The manufacturer
reported that owner notification was expected to begin during October 2001.
Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should
contact Harley-Davidson at 1-414-342-4680.
