MMA Safety Update - HD Issues Recall on 2014 Sportster XL Motorcycle Chrome Hand Control Levers

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
HD Issues Recall on 2014 Sportster XL Motorcycle Chrome Hand Control Levers

Harley Davidson has issued a recall for certain Chrome Hand Control Lever Kits, part number 3670053, intended for use on 2014 Sportster XL motorcycles.  The reason is that affected kits may have excess chrome plating on the brake lever which could prevent the front brake master cylinder piston from fully returning.  This could cause front brake pressure to not be fully released and may cause the front wheel to lock up, which could lead to a crash. 

More information and details of the recall can be found here:
