Harley-Davidson Recalls 9,100 Motorcycles Due to Defective Fuel Gauge

Harley-Davidson has initiated a recall of approximately 9,100 motorcycles due to a fuel gauge issue that can result in the motorcycle running out of fuel and stalling. The recall covers the following vehicle models:

  • 2013-2014 FXSB Breakout
  • 2013-2014 FXSBSE CVO Breakout

These motorcycles were built between March 20, 2012 and March 10, 2014.

According to a report issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Harley-Davidson become aware of the issue in January when one of their engineers ran out of fuel during a motorcycle ride. After investigating the issue, the motorcycle manufacturer determined that a suspension difference altered the fuel tank angle by about 3 degrees, resulting in fuel level readings that were inaccurate. As part of the recall, Harley-Davidson plans to update the software for the fuel level sensor.
