Harley-Davidson Motor Company is recalling 10,580 model year 2015 XG500 motorcycles manufactured January 20, 2014, to June 24, 2015, and XG750 motorcycles manufactured May 12, 2014, to June 24, 2015.
The fuel pump modules on these motorcycles have a poor seal at the fuel pump inlet. This can cause interruption to the fuel supply, possibly causing a brief hesitation with the abrupt restoration of power. This abrupt restoration of power can lead to loss of control, increasing the risk of a crash.
Harley-Davidson will notify owners, and dealers will install a new fuel pump assembly, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin the end of August 2015.
Owners may contact Harley-Davidson customer service at 1-414-343-4056. Harley-Davidson's number for this recall is 0167.
