rocket3touring_rsr_sm.jpg

Models Involved: 2008-09 Rocket III Classic Touring

Number of Vehicles: 47

Problem: On certain motorcycles, the tires may experience a torque-induced degradation in a body ply. The degradation may result in inner-liner cracking that may lead to a slow leak in the rear tire.

Loss of air pressure could cause the rider to lose vehicle control, which may result in property damage, personal injury or death.

Correction: Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace both tires.


Deeley Harley-Davidson Recall (#2009111)

1125R-main_sm.jpg Models Involved:  2008 Buell 1125R, 2009 XB12R, XB12SCG

Number of Vehicles: 271

Problem: On certain motorcycles, the front brake line may contact the front tire. The resultant chafe damage could create a hole in the line. Brake fluid leakage could ultimately result in loss of front braking capability which, depending on traffic conditions and the rider’s reactions, could result in a crash causing personal injury or death.

Correction: Dealers will re-route the front brake line. 


BMW Recall (#2009112)

Models Involved: 2009 F800GS

Number of Vehicles: 105

Problem: On certain motorcycles, the front wheel quick-release axle may not have been manufactured to specifications. The quick-release axle might be of reduced wall thickness which, under severe loads (off-roading, for example), could cause the axle to break. This could result in a vehicle crash causing property damage, personal injury or death.

Correction: Dealers will replace the quick-release axle.
