H-D recall - Touring and Trike

Harley-Davidson Inc said it would recall about 308,474 motorcycles in the United States and overseas due to problems with the rear brake light switch.
The motorcycle maker is recalling some 2009-2012 Touring and Trike models, saying the rear brake light switch may be exposed to excessive heat from the exhaust system.
The excessive heat may cause the switch to not activate the brake lamp or activate the brake lamp when no brake is applied. It may also cause a fluid leak at the brake light switch, Harley-Davidson said in notice to the National Highway and Transportation Safety Administration.
The company is recalling about 250,000 units in the United States and 50,000 outside.
It expects to record a cost of $10-$12 million in the fourth quarter.
