Harley-Davidson Motor Company is recalling 31,346 model year 2019-2021 Sportster (XL) motorcycles, and 796 headlight assemblies that may have been sold as replacement parts for model year 2005-2019 Sportster, model year 2005-2017 Softail, model year 2005-2017 Dyna, and model year 2005-2011 V-Rod motorcycles.

The glass bulb within the headlight assembly may fail, causing a loss of both high and low beams.

A loss of both headlight beams can reduce visibility and increase the risk of a crash.

Harley-Davidson will notify owners, and dealers will install a headlamp bulb shield free of charge.

Owners may contact Harley-Davidson customer service at (800) 258-2464. Harley-Davidson's number for this recall is 0177.
