Harley-Davidson Recalls Softail Motorcycles Over Malfunction

Harley-Davidson has announced a recall of certain Softail motorcycles from the 2011 model year to fix an electronic problem that could cause their engines to stall.

The recall affects Softail motorcycles manufactured from June 7 through October 8, 2010, a total of 6,964 bikes. The recall is due to a defect in the motorcycle’s body control module.

The company says some of the body control modules have cases that may not have been properly sealed. A faulty seal could allow water to seep into the case and cause the engine to stall unexpectedly.  The defect was first spotted in August 2010 when a dealer reported a faulty body control module. The part, which was inspected by the automaker, showed evidence of water intrusion. After pressure testing another eight units, two more motorcycles were found to have the same problem.

If you have been injured in an accident caused by a motorcycle malfunction, you may be entitled to compensation. To discuss your legal options, please contact the Wisconsin motorcycle malfunction lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, by calling 800-242-2874.
