Harley Oz recalls old Sportsters over brake issue


Harley-Davidson Australia has recalled their 2003-05 Sportster XL883R and XL1200R models over an issue with the front brakes.

It is their first recall notice issued for 2021.

The official government notice says the brake light may remain illuminated when the front brakes are not applied.

“If this occurs the traffic behind the vehicle will be unable to identify whether the motorcycle is actually braking,” the notice says.

“This may lead to an accident causing injury or death to the rider and/or passenger and/or other road users.”

Owners of the 74 affected motorcycles whose VINs are listed below should contact their nearest Harley-Davidson Australia dealer immediately and arrange an appointment to have the master cylinder rebuilt free of charge.

Here is the VIN list of affected bikes:
