2013-2014 Harley-Davidson Breakout Recalled for Faulty Fuel IndicatorsThu, 17 Apr 2014
As of this publishing, recalls have been announced by government agencies in Australia and Canada; the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has not yet posted a recall but U.S.-based members of the Harley-DavidsonForums.com report American dealerships have already started receiving recall bulletins.
According to a recall announcement by Transport Canada, some Breakout and CVO Breakout models may run out of fuel despite the fuel and range indicators indicating there is still enough fuel in the tank. Breakout owners may mistakenly be riding under the assumption they have more gas than they do.
The problem appears to be software related, as dealers can correct the issue by applying a software update.
We hope to have more details when NHTSA announces a recall for the U.S. market. The Canadian recall affects 884 units while the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission says 1,722 units are affected down under.
