2014 Harley-Davidson Breakout

2014 Harley-Davidson Breakout

Harley-Davidson has initiated a voluntary recall in Canada.  

The Campaign number is #2014058 and is targeted at repairing at least 297 motorcycles.

The motorcycles effected are the 2014 Harley-Davidson Breakout and 2014 Harley-Davidson Softail Slim.  According to the Road Safety Recalls Database, the motorcycles may not comply with Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 108 – Lighting System and Retroreflective Devices.

The problem is due to a programming error in the body control module, where the brake lamp lit area may be less than what is allowable by the above standard. This could render the vehicle less visible to other motorists, possibly resulting in a crash causing property damage and/or personal injury.

Dealers will correctly reprogram the settings in the body control module.

Recalls in Canada are often followed by the U.S. counterparts, and it’s anticipated that the NHTSA will be involved shortly and the effected number of motorcycles will increase.

Harley-Davidson issued a recall notice (NHTSA Campaign ID# 11V037000) for certain 2011 Softail motorcycles manufactured from June 7, 2010 through October 8, 2010.

The issue is on motorcycles which had a security system kit installed as an accessory.  The Body Control Module (BCM) involved (P/N 69991-11 and 69993-11) has a case where they may not have been properly sealed during production and an improper seal may allow water intrusion into the BCM which might cause an engine stall.

Harley-Davidson will notify owners and dealers and replace the BCM free of charge.  The recall is expected to begin around February 21, 2011.  Owners may contact H-D at 414.343.4056 for more information.
