FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE

8/23/2010 - SAINT CHARLES, MO
THE FUEL GAUGE SHOWS FUEL WHEN EMPTY. THIS HAPPENS CONSTANTLY AND CAN BE HAZARDS ON BUSY HIGHWAYS AND BRIDGES. I OWN A 2007 HARLEY DAVIDSON NIGHT ROD SPECIAL AND MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT HARLEY DAVIDSON HAS BEEN AWARE OF THE PROBLEM FOR SOME TIME BUT HAS DONE NOTHING TO FIX THE PROBLEM.

SERVICE BRAKES, ELECTRIC

8/20/2010 - ZIONSVILLE, IN
2007 HARLEY VRSCDX. THE REAR BRAKES WENT OUT WHILE RIDING. PULLED OFF THE SIDE OF THE ROAD TO INSPECT WHY. BRAKE FLUID WAS LEAKING FROM THE REAR BRAKE SWITCH. THE WIRES ON THE REAR BRAKE SWITCH WERE SEVERELY MELTED AND BRAKE FLUID WAS LEAKING. MY BIKE IS 100% STOCK UNMODIFIED IN ANY WAY WITH ONLY 4253 MILES. I BABIED THE MOTORCYCLE HOME WITHOUT REAR BRAKES.

FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE

8/7/2010 - MISSION, KS
I HAVE A 2007 HARLEY VRSC-DX MOTORCYCLE. THE FUEL GAUGE HAS AN INTERMITTENT PROBLEM WHERE AT VARIOUS FUEL LEVELS IT WILL DROP TO "EMPTY" AND THE FUEL LIGHT WILL COME ON. IT BEGAN BEFORE THE WARRANTY WAS VOID BUT BECAUSE IT WAS INTERMITTENT THE DEALER SAID THEY COULDN'T FIX IT AND TO BRING IT BACK WHEN THE PROBLEM IS OCCURRING. I HAVE NEVER BEEN NEAR THE DEALER WHEN THE PROBLEM OCCURS AND HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO FORCE IT TO HAPPEN.

ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING

8/26/2008 - OLD HICKORY, TN
TL CONTACT OWNS A 2008 (NA) HARLEY DAVIDSON NIGHT ROD VRSCDX. THE CONTACT HAS BEEN EXPERIENCING BALANCING FAILURE WITH THE VEHICLE. THE VEHICLE WOULD CONSTANTLY LEAN TO THE RIGHT. THE DEALER STATED THAT THE ENGINE HAD TWISTED AND THE EXHAUST PIPE AND PANEL THAT HOLD THE ENGINE RAN DOWN ON TOP OF THE FRAME, CAUSING THE VEHICLE TO BECOME IMBALANCED. IN ADDITION, THE FUEL GAUGE AND SPEEDOMETER DISPLAYED INACCURATE READINGS. THE CONTACT WAS PULLED OVER FOR DRIVING 100 MPH WHEN THE GAUGE ONLY READ 70 MPH. THE VEHICLE IS LIQUID COOLED WITH A RADIATOR. ON TWO OCCASIONS, THE BOLTS THAT SUPPORT THE RADIATOR HAVE FALLEN OUT, WHICH COULD BE POTENTIALLY HAZARDOUS AND CAUSE THE ENGINE TO FAIL. ALL OF THE FAILURES OCCURRED WITHIN ONE MONTH OF PURCHASING THE BRAND NEW VEHICLE. THE DEALER COULD NOT FIND ANY FAILURE WITH THE FUEL GAUGE AND THE SPEEDOMETER. AFTER NUMEROUS VISITS, THE DEALER WAS ABLE TO DETERMINE THE FAILURE WITH THE ENGINE AND THEY DECIDED TO REPLACE THE ENTIRE FUEL GAUGE. THE VIN WAS UNKNOWN. THE FAILURE MILEAGE WAS 1,300 AND CURRENT MILEAGE WAS 1,750.
