SIX (6) OF THE EIGHT (8) INTERNAL WRENCHING BOLTS THE HOLD THE ROTOR SECTION OF THE ALTERNATOR SYSTEM ON MY 2006 HARLEY DAVIDSON FXDWGI WORKED LOOSE AND TWO SHEERED OFF OF THE COMPENSATOR DRIVE ASSEMBLY CAUSING IT TO LOCK MY REAR WHEEL AND START TO SEND ME TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD DUE TO REAR WHEEL LOCK AND A FOR SURE CRASH INTO THE DITCH. I WAS HOWEVER ABLE TO PULL THE CLUTCH IN AND UNLOCK THE REAR WHEEL THUS REGAINING CONTROL OF THE MOTORCYCLE. I FEEL, A RIDER OF LESSER EXPERIENCE MAY WELL HAVE BEEN IN A VARY SERIOUS WRECK ! I'M TOLD THAT HARLEY DAVIDSON IS AWARE OF THIS DEFECT IN THE ALTERNATOR ROTOR DRIVE SYSTEM AND HAS DONE NOTHING TO RECALL THE MOTORCYCLES THAT HAVE THIS DEFECT. I FEEL THAT THIS IS A LIFE THREATENING DEFECT, BECAUSE IF THE REAR WHEEL LOCKS UP IN A CORNER AND OR CURVE IT WOULD CAUSE A TOTAL LOSS OF CONTROL OF THE MOTORCYCLE. HARLEY DAVIDSON NOW SELLS ONLY AN UP-DATED REPLACEMENT PART THAT IS NOW WELDED WITH NO RETAINING BOLTS BUT THERE ARE STILL MORE BIKES OUT THERE WITH THIS SAME DEFECT AND LIKE MYSELF THE RIDER HAS NO IDEA THAT THERE IS A POETICAL LIFE THREATENING FLAW WITH THEIR MOTORCYCLE. I ONLY HOPE THAT THIS WILL CALL ATTENTION TO THIS DEFECT BEFORE SOMEONE DIES BECAUSE OF IT ....THERE SHOULD BE A RECALL ON THIS!!!!
