Street 750 recall is to fix a faulty seal in the fuel pump.
Harley Davidson has recalled 3,698 Street 750 motorcycles covering its entry-level Street 750 models. This would include motorcycles manufactured between February 24, 2014 and July 15, 2015 at its Bawal plant in Haryana. The objective is to replace a faulty seal in the fuel pump system.
We, at AutoColumn had reported recall of same models in Canada and had urged owners here in India to contact their local dealer in the article dated 19 August.
“Harley-Davidson confirms that it has voluntarily recalled model year 2015 Street family vehicles, of which the ‘XG750’ model is available in India. We identified that some of the motorcycles may have a poor seal at the fuel pump inlet, and announced the recall in the interest of customer safety. We are committed to correcting this issue and are working with our dealers in India to notify customers and request them to bring their motorcycles in for inspection.” said the company in a statement.
The Motorcycle Company says that the fuel pump module inside the tanks of these bikes may have a poor seal at the inlet. This may cause an interruption in the supply of fuel under acceleration, especially when the fuel level is low.
Street 750 is the bread and butter bike in India for Harley Davidson. Almost 60 percent of the Harley’s sold in India are the Street 750 model which starts at a price tag of Rs. 4.2 lakh ex-showroom.
