Harley-Davidson Motor Company, Inc. announced that it is recalling several 2013-2014 FXSB and FSXBSE bikes due to a manufacturing error.
Over 9,000 recalled models have a suspension variance that causes the angle of the fuel gauge to change. This angle difference causes an incorrect fuel level reading and can result in the motorcycle running out of fuel. The lack of fuel causes the motorcycle to stall
—which could lead to crashes. HD has not received any reports of injuries or crashes due to this defect.
The affected bikes were made from March 20, 2012 to March 10 2014. The company discovered the issue when an engineer ran out of fuel.
To fix the problem, HD urges bike owners to go to an authorized dealership for a free software update. This update will recalibrate the fuel level sensor, and eliminate the issue.
