Attention all bikers.
Harley-Davidson and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have issued a recall for nearly 2,800 2012 and 2013 motorcycles. Any owners of a Harley-Davidson VRSCDX model that was manufactured between June 14, 2011 and Aug. 1, 2012 may begin to see problems that could eventually compromise the safety of the brake system.
The issue lies with the unassuming license plate. According to the NHTSA’s report, the screws that hold the license plate bracket to the rear fender might come loose. This could potentially cause a safety hazard if the license plate starts to touch the back wheel and then damage the rear brake line.
Harley-Davidson, the Milwaukee-based and legendary motorcycle company, will inspect and fix all of these bikes free of charge when the recall begins around Nov. 5.
