Harley-Davidson just announced it is recalling all of its 2008 Touring models due to a finding that the fuel-filter shell may crack. This could cause the motorcycles to slow or stall and could then lead to a motorcycle accident. This is a voluntary recall and affects almost 50,000 of these motorcycles. According to the company, which is based in Milwaukee, no accidents due this defect have been reported.
So if you own a 2008 Harley with a FL designation, call your local dealer or call the company at 1-414-343-4056. This is not something you want to put off. For a copy of the official recall notice from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, click here.
