Harley-Davidson FXDF Recall. Harley-Davidson issued a recall notice on certain model 2010 FXDF motorcycles with fork leg assemblies manufactured from February 9 through February 29, 2010. The fork leg assemblies may have been incorrectly assembled using the wrong springs and as a result the motorcycles containing the wrong springs will have reduced effectiveness which can cause reduced traction on irregular road surfaces and will also create an irregular lean angle when parked on the side stand.

Empty threat? “Harley-Davidson seeks to close large cost gaps in its Milwaukee-area and Tomahawk production operations, and improve flexibility to meet seasonal and other customer-driven production needs,” Harley-Davidson said in a statement. If Harley-Davidson is unable to achieve those objectives through agreement with the unions by mid-September 2010, the company has said it will move Wisconsin production operations to another location in the United States.
Zero Motorcycles, the global leader in the electric motorcycle industry, was recently awarded a U.S. patent for the revolutionary battery interconnect system used to power its line of motorcycles. First integrated into production models as early as 2006, this interconnect system is low-resistance, flexible and rugged. The patented technology allows Zero to create high power density packs that operate at maximum efficiency under extreme loads with passive air-cooling. This new technology marks a milestone in electric motorcycle innovation because it enables the Z-Force power pack to withstand years of vibration and impacts due to highly demanding conditions.
