HARLEY DAVIDSON IS RECALLING 1,759 Model Year 2009 FLTRSE3 MOTORCYCLES EQUIPPED WITH BLADE REAR WHEEL ACCESSORY KITS. SOME WHEELS WITHIN THE SUBJECT POPULATION UNDERWENT A SECONDARY HEAT TREATMENT PROCESS. AS A RESULT OF THIS SECONDARY HEAT TREATMENT, THESE WHEELS MAY HAVE A CRACK.
IF A CRACK IS PRESENT, IT COULD RESULT IN WHEEL FAILURE DURING USE, POSSIBLY LEADING TO A CRASH, WHICH COULD RESULT IN INJURY OR DEATH OF THE RIDER.
DEALERS WILL REMOVE THE REAR WHEEL AND INSPECT THE MANUFACTURER'S CODE. WHEELS WITH THE CODES THAT INDICATE THAT THEY UNDERWENT A SECONDARY HEAT TREATMENT PROCESS WILL BE REPLACED. WHEELS THAT DO NOT HAVE THE SUSPECT CODE WILL BE RE-INSTALLED.
If you've got a lemon Harley, and your dealer won't take care of you, get a Burdge attorney. Getting rid of lemons is what we do. every day.
