Harley-Davidson Recalls 2008 FLH and FLTR for Fuel Filter Shell Defect

Harley-Davidson has issued a recall of certain 2008 FLHP, FLHPE, FLHR, FLHRC, FLHRSE4, FLHT, FLHTC, FLHTCU, FLHTCUSE3, FLHTP, FLHX, and FLTR motorcycles.

These motorcycles may experience a cracking of the fuel filter shell leading to loss of fuel pressure. This loss of fuel pressure can cause diminished performance and, in some cases, may cause an engine stall or a no-start condition. This condition could lead to a crash which could cause injury or death to the rider.

47579 units are affected.

I own a 2008 ultra classic,The Harley Davidson factory attached the clutch cable and rear brakeline to the frame with zip ties. Due to engine vibration the clutch cable ruptured the brakeline causing brake fluid to leak out, resulting in rear brake failure. I notified Harley Davidson (ref#1201387) about this problem.
