    Is the MoCo’s quaility control slipping since they started using part timer workers?

    It’s not a problem if the brakes fail. The parachute will pop out the back. Though they might spill their coffee…

    Are these parts coming from China, instead of being made in America?

    News Flash Trike Lady- Most parts on a Harley-Davidson are manufactured in about every other country other than the USA. Sad but true

    Ray Ray,

    You’re mistaken about that. It’s a very common misconception. The domestic content percentage of new bikes coming down the assembly line is very high. Many (if not most) of the replacement parts that come across the counter, and especially the accessories, are foreign but the part that went on the bike as it rolled down the line new were indeed domestic.

    There is some foreign content on new bikes like the Showa forks that H-D has used for many years but the overall domestic content of a new bike coming down the line is very high. I can’t give an exact number because i don’t know what it is anymore but as recently as 7 or 8 years ago it was (I think) 84, 86, 94 or 96 percent. I just can’t remember. I want to think it was on the higher end but I can’t swear to it.

    I wonder if there is a “2 days since last recall” sign hanging somewhere in Milwaukee right now 😉

    MSP Dan….The last I heard is that Harley sources it’s frames, engine parts, and tranny parts domestically. Most of the “other”stuff is sourced from foreign suppliers. Most clothes and accessories are also likely to come from abroad. Like you, I’m not sure this is current information either. Incidentally, It’s my understanding this is a common practice among all American auto and bike manufacturers. It would be very informative if we could obtain actual data from Harley, Victory and Indian for comparison.

    @richards-

    I live in SE Wisconsin and have known many MoCo employees and Buell employees over the years, from assembly line workers to pretty high ranking officers. Not that it means much, except that I used to have access to a lot of information. Unfortunately, everyone I knew at H-D has retired or moved on and H-D closed the original Buell, so I no longer have access to that information.

    The way it was 7 or 8 years ago, was that many things that went on the bike coming down the line were American even though the replacement parts came from overseas. The way it was told to me was that they had to maintain a certain percentage of American parts to be able to label the bikes as American made and to qualify for certain tax breaks, etc.

    People go to a dealership and buy a replacement part (let’s say a taillight lens, just for the sake of this discussion) and it says “made In Taiwan” on the box, so they automatically assume that the bike came new with a Taiwanese taillight lens. But in reality the bike did indeed have an American made lens on it when the bike was assembled.

    At least that’s how it was explained to me.

    @ MSP Dan…Thanks for the info. Sounds logical to me.
