Harley-Davidson Has Recalled the 2002 Dyna Wide Glide

(SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has released the following information.

Models: Harley Davidson Dyna Wide Glide Year: 2002

Number Potentially Involved: 1,762

Dates of Manufacture: March – June 2001

Defect: On certain motorcycles, the rear brake line assemblies could fracture internally. This condition
could allow the line to leak brake fluid, which could cause loss of the rear brake function, possibly
without warning, increasing the risk of a crash.

Remedy: Dealers will replace the rear brake line. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification
was expected to begin during February 2003. Owners may contact Harley-Davidson at 1-414-342-4680.

[NHTSA Recall No. 03V005/Harley Davidson Recall No. 0107].

affected by one of these posted recalls be sure and
write down the NHTSA 
If your dealer doesn't know about the recall when you
check, ask them how they are notified of recalls and
