Harley Davidson (HD) will be contacting the owners of certain 2019-2020 FL trike model motorcycles because of a problem affecting the traction control system software. The software used on these motorcycles may react incorrectly to a faulty rear wheel speed signal by activating one of the rear brakes. If this happens, the driver will experience an unexpected change in direction, increasing the risk of an accident. Drivers will be alerted of a problem through a continuously illuminated traction control indicator in conjunction with the fault indicator lamp.
The motorcycles affected by this problem include:
- 2019-2020 Harley Davidson FLHTCUTG
- 2020 Harley Davidson FLHTCUTGSE
- 2019-2020 Harley Davidson FLRT
Owners receiving notices will be asked to visit their HD dealer to confirm their motorcycle is covered by the recall. If covered, the dealer will install a new software.
