I kinda figured that was going to have to happen sooner or later. I'm ahead of the curve.

Was aware of your pushing the envelope. Wanted everyone to know MOCO is committed to the product and has a team of engineers to respond if stuff shows up.

And it will with a new model.

I have the VRSCA 2003 it has had a few of them as well.

That's the price of admission to be an early adopter. But clearly, with this early recall, they're showing their willingness to stand behind the product and not "wait and see". It's a good sign.

Maybe 2 recalls then... This is verbatim from a good friend at a Texas dealer:

Hey Robert, I do know that they just issued a recall yesterday on the streets. They are saying that they "may have been assembled with a fuel tank fill neck that may not allow the fuel cap to seal to the tank properly"

Maybe she's a little off. Won't know til the details hit the street (pun intended) lol

I got this impression early on as I've already had my fuel pump replaced because Harley wanted my fuel pump to check out problems associated with it. I don't know if I received the new pump that will be provided for with the recall but I never experienced any problems with the pump itself. My problem was with the low fuel warning light instead.


But Harley was obviously already concerned about the fuel pump when I had mine worked on and that was very soon after the Street 750 hit the market in the US.




Always remember that for every mile of highway there are two miles of ditches.

I've not had a problem with this but have had a problem with the restrictor plate that prevents a "leaded fuel" nozzle from being used. It sometimes causes gas to puke out when filling the tank spewing gasoline all over the bike creating a serious threat of fire. One spark and the entire motorcycle would go up in flames.

It certainly annoys me and frightens me a little every time this happens and seems to happen regardless of how careful I try to be when fueling. It's never happened on any other MC I've owned.
