Harley-Davidson Recalls 2012 Dyna and Softail Models for Possible Corrosion in the Brake Line Banjo Bolt in the Front Brake Master Cylinder

Harley-Davidson Motor Company (Harley-Davidson) is recalling certain model year 2012 FXST103, FLSTC, FLSTC103, FLSTF, FLSTF103, FXDL, FXDWG, FXDWG103, FXDC, FXDB, FLSTN, FLSTN103, FLSTC103Shrine, FLSTFB, FLSTFB103, FXS, FXS103, FLS, FLS103, FLD, FLD103, FXDF, and FXDF103 Dyna and Softail motorcycles manufactured August 22, 2011, through February 24, 2012.

In the affected motorcycles, the threads for the brake line banjo bolt in the front brake master cylinder may corrode.

If the threads corrode, a sudden loss of brake fluid could result, causing a loss of the front brakes, and increasing the risk of a crash.

19,015 units are affected.
