Harley-Davidson Recalls FXSB and FXSBSE Motorcycles

The fuel level sensor may give inaccurate readings
Harley-Davidson Motor Company is recalling 9,102 model year 2013-2014 FXSB (Breakout) and FXSBSE (CVO Breakout) motorcycles manufactured March 20, 2012, through March 10, 2014.
       Suspension variances may affect the gas tank mounting angle causing the fuel level sensor to read inaccurately. The gauge inaccuracy may cause the motorcycle to run out of fuel unexpectedly, possibly even before the Low Fuel Warning lamp illuminates. The lack of fuel could cause the motorcycle to stall, increasing the risk of a crash.
       Harley-Davidson will notify owners, and dealers will update the software to recalibrate the fuel level sensor signal, free of charge. The recall was expected to begin in late April 2014.
       Owners may contact Harley-Davidson at 1-800-258-2464.
