Harley-Davidson Recalls 10,580 Street 500 and Street 750 Due To Faulty Fuel Pump

8StreetThe affected Street motorcycles were manufactured between January 20, 2014 and June 24, 2015, (Street 500) between May 12, 2014 and June 24, 2015 Street 750) The fuel-pump issue is in regard of a a poor seal at the inlet that can cause an interruption of fuel supply. It it occurs, it creates an hesitation of the motorcycle, then an abrupt return to power with the possibility for the surprised rider to lose control and crash. Harley-Davidson will notify owners directly and dealers will install a new fuel pump free of charge. Owners may contact Harley-Davidson customer service at 1-414-343-4056. or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety HotlineΒ at 1-888-327-4236.

    My kids Buell Blast is looking pretty damn good right now!!

    It’s a joke to see what H-D has become………”Made in India” on the side of the semi trailers yet?

    dr. rock…no, because they are built in Kanas…see attached from cycle world.

    All Street 750s and Street 500s for US and Canadian consumption will be built in the Harley-Davidson Vehicle and Powertrain Operations plant in Kansas City, Missouri, where there is a manufacturing line dedicated to producing the liquid-cooled Revolution X engine, a new 60-degree V-twin featuring chain-driven single overhead camshafts. On the other hand, all Street 750s and Street 500s for India, Italy, Spain, and Portugal (the only other markets at this time), will be built in Bawal, which has been expanded to a full manufacturing plant (for the Street models only) and uses parts sourced from all over the world.

    Just recall the entire Street range and dump it.

    Skipping two generations (in marketing focus) is about as smart as calling a (new) Scout an Indian…

    Take the resources and focus it on a 100ci V-Rod.

    @richards…..I find it very hard to accept in just a pure business move the the moco would produce the same bike in two very different locations. Why would they do that? The bikes made in India have got to be much le$$ costly to make in a non epa/osha country. Are the Streets maybe a “kit” bike and put together here?

    What would it matter? When is the last time HD thumped its chest and said American Made Motorcycles anyway?

  7. 7 2Wheels Aug 25th, 2015 at 2:53 pm

    @richards The bikes are manufactured in India. H-D runs a CKD operation for US market volumes so they can say they are assembled in the USA. Regardless, the MoCo has had plenty of recalls for their US produced bikes in recent years as well…

  8. 8 Russ Mansfield Aug 25th, 2015 at 4:48 pm

    One more recall…

    Solution,
    No fuel pump. Gravity fed fuel worked well for 100 + years, and still works well.

    Dave, “No fuel pump”???? How is that going to work with fuel injection?

  11. 11 Badams Aug 25th, 2015 at 10:01 pm

    Teething problems.

    Have a GREAT day ya’ll…

    BUY THE NEW INDIAN SCOUT !!

  16. 16 1550tc Aug 26th, 2015 at 10:29 pm

    YES a V-Rod touring bike, with a minimum 14-1650cc engine 130 hp and 120 tq and 666lbs wet

    YES a new FXR, like the one THE STURGIS model HD had on display in Sturgis

    YES and a developed Roadster – ok how about just a longer version of the bagger frame or do they think all bagger owners need LOW MODELS………..how about an L model with a longer frame for guys over 5-10 or guys with inseams longer than 30 inches ??

    The comment about India is just silly. I am a (mostly) happy, long-time HD big twin owner (4 bikes over almost 20 years) and not a defender of the MoCo. But I do believe that the misguided, misplaced comments about where a bike, its parts or even its ‘manufacturing vs. assembly’ is taking place is just plain silly.

    Bikes, like cars (and airplanes, computers and smart phones for that matter) are human-engineered, mass-produced (for the most part) goods that are subject to parts failure, engineering mistakes, etc.

    For anyone who believes otherwise, google ‘vehicles with most recalls’ (or something similar) and see the lists compiled by the banks, consumer reports, etc. Most (~70% or more) of the vehicles on the lists are American made. Just sayin’.

    And before the comment bashing begins – I drive a 2013 Jeep. It’s designed and built in the U.S. (not India) and has already had two recalls.

    Are anchor babies just delivered in the USA, not assembled here?

  19. 19 Mis Behaves Aug 27th, 2015 at 5:35 pm

    @James just another Crazy Kiwi – I love your focus. Not everyone can be as cool as a Kiwi πŸ˜‰
