Harley-Davidson has issued a recall on its entry-level Street 750 cruiser motorcycles in India. The American two-wheeler manufacturer has recalled the Harley-Davidson Street 750 due to defect in fuel pump module installed on the bikes.
The company will be recalling all the Street 750 motorcycles that are manufactured at the Harley-Davidson plants at Kansas City in USA and Bawal in India. The recalled motorcycles are produced between 20th January 2014 to 24th June, 2015 in the USA and between 24th February 2014 to 15th July, 2015 in India.
The manufacturer noticed a problem with the fuel pump which is said to be equipped with an inferior quality seal at the inlet. This can lead to an adverse effect on the fuel supply system during accelerating.
Moreover, if the fuel capacity in the bike is below 3 litres or even before the low fuel indicator light comes on, it can be very dangerous as it can lead to interruptions in fuel delivery and as a result it will affect the acceleration with sudden loss of power.
However, the company has not reported any accidents as such so far. For the safety of the riders and owners, the company has also emailed its respective customers in various countries about this issue. In Canada, around 666 units of the motorcycle have been recalled and the company is expected to recall the bikes in other markets across the globe as well.
The two-wheeler maker will be replacing the inferior part with a quality part free of cost across its dealerships. Harley-Davidson has also requested the owners that till the time the defected part is not replaced, they are requested not to ride the Harley-Davidson Street 750 more than 160km with low fuel or without filling the fuel tank to the rim.
