NHTSA Letter to HD

When checking the NHTSA site today, I noticed a new PDF attachment under "Investigations" (click on associated documents) showing a letter sent to HD with a response required from them by June 26th.

This is just what I expected. The wheels are now in motion, and the MOCO cannot ignore this. Hope there is a recall soon, as this is a great bike otherwise.

I don't like how they are not lumping the 500 in the mix.

The text above is my opinion. Feel free to ignore it. I do.

Not to worry. If it turns out is is fuel tank / fuel pump related, the bikes share identical parts, and the MOCO should address a fix for both.

Thumbs up Letter to HD (lag/leap)

The email that seems to work is [email protected]


Good Morning Mr. Roeszler, 6/4/2015 7:58 A.M. (pst)

I purchased a Harley-Davidson Street 750 on 5/19/2015 new from a dealership, by 5/25/2015 it was put into the service-department for the lag/leap-stall condition that is now under investigation. Today 6/4/2015, the bike is, according to directions from Harley corporate/tech's instructions, repaired. My question for you, since you are now aware of this defect, will this motorcycle be safe to operate? In your opinion, should I pick this bike up from the service department, leave it there until a final fix is designed, or will Harley-Davidson refund all cost associated with the purchase of this bike with a return to the dealer. Ask yourself, would you let your wife ride this bike, your children?

Here is my VIN# 1HD4NBB39******* and my NHTSA ID Number: 10721274. As you can tell if you read the complaint, the vehicle was five (5) days out from the dealer with less than 100 miles on the odometer. The dealer is ********** Harley-Davidson, 3201 ******, ******* *****, CA 91***.

PLEASE ADVISE ASAP

Thank-you,
Brian *****

The recall and investigation have been updated on the NHTSA website, along with additional documents, and ultimately closed due to the recall. I haven't received a recall notice yet but will probably get one soon.

Awesome news. Now if we can get them to acknowledge the first to second neutral issue. Because quite frankly I'm tired of starting from a stop, revving high and taking off in second. About to take this back to the dealer and take the repo hit on the credit. Doesn't make sense to pay for a partial working bike. Or at best hope it goes from first to second with neutral showing up.
