Harley-Davidson Inc has recalled 308,474 motorcycles worldwide due to problems with the rear brake light switch. Certain 2009-2012 Touring and Trike models are being recalled because the rear brake light switch may be exposed to excessive heat from the exhaust system. The excessive heat may cause the switch to not activate the brake lamp or activate the brake lamp when no brake is applied. It may also cause a fluid leak at the brake light switch.
The company recalled about 250,000 units in the United States and about 50,000 outside. Harley shipped 210,494 motorcycles internationally and shipped an average of 306,000 motorcycles each month from 2000 to 2010. The company has issued other smaller recalls in recent years, including one for 142,000 motorcycles in November 2009 for an issue related to fuel tank mounts.
