Harley-Davidson recalls 3,163 motorcycles

TOKYO July 13, 2006; Jaan Today reported that Harley-Davidson Japan said Wednesday it is recalling a total of 3,163 units of two motorcycle models due to defective braking systems.

The motorcycles were imported from September 2003 to July 2005, the company said in a report to the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport. The company said the motorbikes' brake lamps may not turn off even when a driver lets go of the brake lever on the handle due to insufficient application of grease on the brake piston.
