    I recieved a letter from MoCo,letting me know that the police model Road Kings, and E-Glides were subject to a recall .It seems that they may have an issue with the brake lines rubbing and leaking. Parts are only going to be released 04/07/08. I made an appointment already. For now the preflight checklist just got longer.:cry

INCONSISTENCIES IN THE ROUTING OF THE BRAKE LINES CAN CAUSE ABRASION OF THE BRAKE LINES AND HOSES. IN SOME CASES, THIS CONDITION HAS CAUSED BRAKE FLUID LEAKS.

    Consequence:
    LOSS OF BRAKE FLUID COULD LEAD TO LOSS OF BRAKE FUNCTION, WHICH COULD LEAD TO A CRASH RESULTING IN INJURY OR DEATH.

    Remedy:
    DEALERS WILL INSPECT AND REPLACE THE BRAKE LINES, IF NECESSARY. BRAKE LINE RETENTION AND CLUTCH CABLE POSITIONING DEVICES WILL ALSO BE INSTALLED TO PREVENT FUTURE ABRASION TO THE BRAKE LINES. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR ABOUT MARCH 10, 2008. OWNERS MAY CONTACT HARLEY-DAVIDSON AT 1-414-342-4680.
