The quarter-million unit recall—175,000 of which are in the US—is expected to cost the company just shy of $30 million which, like having your brakes fail, is less than ideal. The issue reportedly stems from a faulty ABS module and/or neglected maintenance, both of which have the potential to result in failing calipers. The manufacturer started the recall back in mid-February, and owners of affected vehicles can bring them to a local dealership to have fixed.

“This condition is associated with delayed or neglected brake fluid maintenance as specified in the owner’s manual,” stated Carolyn Duranowski, director of marketing at Oakland Harley-Davidson. “Harley-Davidson is offering the remedy fluid flush free of charge to all motorcycles within the recall population, regardless of their maintenance history.”

Harley-Davidson was already struggling to sell bikes, and multiple recalls in just eight months definitely isn’t helping to attract new buyers. Luckily the marque has its fully-electric Livewire model on the way, which is sure to turn everything around, so this whole snafu should work itself out. Right?Harley put together a video about how its ABS system works for anyone that’s interested.
