"430,000 motorcycles could be affected."

"Riders reported sudden brake system failure occurring without warning."

"The announcement of the investigation follows what was a record-setting year for recalls at Harley-Davidson according to the Wall Street Journal."

"A 2014 recall was also issued for over 60,000 motorcycles over malfunctioning brakes, but in that case, the brakes were not failing without warning but engaging unexpectedly."

The first thing HD stated was that it was owners fault as that they were not changing their brake fluid every two years as stated in the owners manual.

That's a mistake for them to say that. Even if it has merit. Many other makes do not have brake failures and I'll bet they don't change their fluid every two years either.

I wonder if it has to do with them using shitty dot5 fluid to save their paint job instead of the superior performing dot4

It would be the irony of the century of a Chinese state-owned conglomerate bought H-D. LOL!

H-D management would probably turn around and blame Americans for it because they demanded too much pay and didn't buy enough H-D's.
