Harley-Davidson recalls thousands of motorbikes in Australia



Motorcycle giant Harley-Davidson is recalling thousands of its bikes across Australia due to a potentially faulty part that could increase the risk of a crash.

The rear shock absorber adjuster mounting bolt may break, potentially causing damage to the rear tyre and a loss of tyre pressure, the Department of Transport has warned.

"A sudden loss of tyre air pressure whilst riding may result in loss of vehicle control increasing the risk of an accident, causing injury or death to rider and/or passenger and other road users," the department said.

The potential fault was caused by a "manufacturing issue", the department said.

The recall affects 3676 Softail motorbikes of the following variants: FLDE, FLHC, FLHCS, FLHCS ANV, FXLRS and FXLRST for the period of 2017 to 2023.

Owners of affected motorcycles can contact their nearest Harley-Davidson Australia dealer and arrange to have the motorcycle repaired, free of charge.
