Harley Oz recalls old Sportsters over brake issue

Harley-Davidson Australia has recalled their 2003-05 Sportster XL883R and XL1200R models over an issue with the front brakes.

It is their first recall notice issued for 2021.

The official government notice says the brake light may remain illuminated when the front brakes are not applied.

“If this occurs the traffic behind the vehicle will be unable to identify whether the motorcycle is actually braking,” the notice says.

“This may lead to an accident causing injury or death to the rider and/or passenger and/or other road users.”

Owners of the 74 affected motorcycles whose VINs are listed below should contact their nearest Harley-Davidson Australia dealer immediately and arrange an appointment to have the master cylinder rebuilt free of charge.

Here is the VIN list of affected bikes:

Kawasaki recall over H2 SX gear wear

Kawasaki Australia have recalled their supercharged Ninja H2 SX motorcycles over an issue that could cause abnromal wear on the gears.

Models recalled are the 2018 H2 SX and the 2019 and 2020 H2 SX SE+. Vehicle identification numbers of the 103 affected vehicles are included at the end of this article.

The official recall notice issued through Australian Competition and Consumer Commission blames the Engine Control Unit (ECU) programming for the issue.

It says the ECU may not control the gear shifting process properly when the transmission gears are not properly engaged.

“This may result in abnormal wear or damage to the gears, resulting in difficulty or failure to change gears,” it says.

“If there is a failure to change gears while riding, this could increase the risk of an accident and injury or death to rider(s) and other road users.”

Owners of affected motorcycles are asked to contact their nearest Kawasaki dealer to arrange an inspection and free repair of the vehicle.

It is the second recall for the H2 SX after a centre stand issue in 2018 and it is the third Australian recall for the Japanese manufacturer this year.Kawasaki H2 SX SE supercharged tourer

RECALL: Zero’s SR/F and SR/S Brake Switch Failing Due to Water

Electricity and Water Don’t Mix

Do you own a 2020 Zero SR/F or SR/S? If you do, and your bike was manufactured between the dates of February 14th and June 19th, 2020, your motorcycle may be affected by this recall. A total of 659 bikes could have this issue, so it’s safer to check rather than be sorry due to the smaller volume of sales Zero has.

The report that was published through the NHTSA states that the bikes involved in this recall have their front brake switch improperly glued. It’s quite a small oversight that could result in seriously catastrophic consequences. Due to the switch being improperly glued, it can result in water finding its way into the electronics and causing malfunction of the unit. 

What happens in the event that water finds its way in? This brake switch’s main function is for rear brake lighting up when the brakes are depressed, and shutting off the cruise control when the front brake lever is pulled.

If you’re riding in low-light or in the dark this can prove extremely dangerous as an improperly functioning rear brake signal can result in a driver behind you failing to be notified of you, the rider, slowing down – perhaps resulting in a rear-end collision. If you ride with cruise control often and rely on tapping the front brakes to deactivate the CC system, you may be putting yourself in extreme danger when the bike decides it doesn’t want to disengage the system.

The official recall number for this problem is ‘SV-ZMC-021-020’ and it begins on the 30th of November, 2020. Zero motorcycle owners should be getting a notice in the mail to make an appointment to bring their bike to the dealership to get the part replaced for free.

Zero Motorcycles Recalls 2021 Models for Insufficient DC Converters

It’s Only Some Models

Zero Motorcycles has issued a recall of several 2021 models. The reason is a DC converter that could have an insufficient power output margin. The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is recalling motorcycles that have been affected.

The converter issue could be bad. If it is overloaded it could shut off without warning the rider. The ABS and lights could experience issues as well and result in a crash.

This recall pertains to certain 2021 Zero SR, S, DSR, DS, FX, and FXS motorcycles. The VIN ranges are not included in the notice and Zero will be mailing notices to the owners. If you have additional questions, you should contact your local Zero Motorcycles dealership.

The company said that it should take dealers about 30 minutes to install the fix to the system. However, this could be different depending on the dealer and the service department. The service will not cost owners anything.

RECALL: Harley-Davidson LiveWire Shutting Down While Riding

The ever-growing list of 2020 motorcycle recalls continues to expand with another addition to the hit-list; Harley Davison’s 2020 LiveWire is unexpectedly shutting down for some riders mid-ride and in some cases not allowing for the driver to turn the vehicle back on after initial shut-off.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration states that only 1% of the ~1000 bikes being recalled may be affected by the issue, so there is no reason to panic but it’s still better to be safe than sorry.

The issue apparently comes from the On-Board Charging software that causes the powertrain to turn off. I’m not sure if that issue will really cause *a complete* shut down of the bike with all other features shutting off, but other sources are reporting that ABS, TC, and other assists can indeed cut out as well.

This is not good news for anyone who rides their bikes in the evening or in low light, as there is potential for ABS, traction control, and your headlight to shut off mid-ride which could cause serious injury or even death.

Between the 22nd and 29th of October, 2020 LiveWire owners will be notified by mail regarding the recall and will be urged to take their motorcycles to their local H-D dealership to have the software updated for free.

Where I live, there is currently 10cm of snow on the ground, so if are like me and cannot arrange transportation of your bike to the dealership Harley-Davidson is happy to pick it up and return it back to your house absolutely free of charge.

If you are a 2020 H-D LiveWire owner it would be in your best interest to give the Harley-Davidson customer support line a ring and provide them with your VIN so they can check to see if you perhaps have one of the affected versions of the bike.
