Posted Monday, Nov 14, 2011 by
When it comes to vehicle design and engineering, small problems can sometimes lead to very big problems, as Milwaukee, Wisconsin-based motorcycle giant Harley-Davidson has discovered. In this case, the small problem is a brake light switch that’s been placed too close to the exhaust system. Overheating of this switch can cause the rear brake lights to fail and, in some cases, the rear brakes to fail as well.
Having discovered this error over the summer, They were built between June 6, 2008, and Sept. 16, 2011. Owners will receive their recall notices in the mail.
Harley-Davidson says they expect this recall to cost the company between $10 million and $12 million, which just shows you how a little problem can become a very big problem very quickly.
