Nobody wants to lose power. But that's what Harley-Davidson is saying might happen on 10,580 Street 500 and Street 750 models built from January 2014-June 2015. Poor seating at the fuel pump inlet is being blamed which can briefly interrupt the fuel supply, leading to a short loss of power followed by "abrupt restoration of power."
Here's the info from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Report Receipt Date: JUL 29, 2015
NHTSA Campaign Number: 15V474000
Potential Number of Units Affected: 10,580
Manufacturer: Harley-Davidson Motor Company
Harley-Davidson Motor Company (Harley-Davidson) is recalling certain model year 2015 XG500 motorcycles manufactured January 20, 2014, to June 24, 2015, and XG750 motorcycles manufactured May 12, 2014, to June 24, 2015. The fuel pump modules on these motorcycles have a poor seal at the fuel pump inlet.
If there is a poor seal at the fuel pump inlet it can cause interruption to the fuel supply, possibly causing a brief hesitation with the abrupt restoration of power. This abrupt restoration of power can lead to loss of control, increasing the risk of a crash.
Harley-Davidson will notify owners, and dealers will install a new fuel pump assembly, free of charge. The recall began on August 21, 2015. Owners may contact Harley-Davidson customer service at 1-414-343-4056. Harley-Davidson's number for this recall is 0167.
