Harley-Davidson is recalling certain 2012 model year FXST103, FLSTC, FLSTC103, FLSTF, FLSTF103, FXDL, FXDWG, FXDWG103, FXDC, FXDB, FLSTN, FLSTN103, FLSTC103Shrine, FLSTFB, FLSTFB103, FXS, FXS103, FLS, FLS103, FLD, FLD103, FXDF, and FXDF103 Dyna and Softail motorcycles. These 19,015 bikes were manufactured between August 22, 2011, to February 24, 2012.
The threads for the brake line banjo bolt in the front brake master cylinder may corrode in the affected motorcycles which could cause a sudden loss of brake fluid resulting in a loss of the front brakes thus increasing the risk of a crash. Harley will notify owners to take the bike to a dealership which will flush and inspect the front brake master cylinder, and replace the master cylinder, free of charge, if necessary. The recall is expected to begin on January 14, 2015. Owners may contact Harley-Davidson customer service at 1-800-258-2464.
