Harley-Davidson Headlight Assembly Recall Softail

Harley-Davidson Motor Company (Harley-Davidson) is recalling certain 2019-2021 Sportster (XL) motorcycles and 796 headlight assembly models that may have been sold as replacement parts for 2005-2019 Sportster, 2005-2017 Softail, 2005-2017 Dyna, and 2005-2011 V-Rod motorcycles. The glass bulb within the headlight assembly may fail, causing a loss of both high and low beams.

Owners may contact Harley-Davidson customer service at 1-800-258-2464. Harley-Davidson’s number for this recall is 0177.

Notes

Management at CycleVIN L.L.C. recommend not riding affected motorcycles until the repairs have been completed. Riding a motorcycle, even during the day time, without the headlight functioning correctly can reduce visibility, and increase the risk of an accident or crash occurring. Owners may contact CycleVIN L.L.C., or they may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
