Harley-Davidson Motor Company, on October 13, 2023, issued a voluntary safety recall concerning specific early 2023 models of the CVO Road Glide and CVO Street Glide motorcycles. In these early production models, a lower frame rail clamp may fail to secure the rear brake line adequately.

This issue could cause the rear brake line to come into contact with the exhaust system, potentially resulting in a brake fluid leak. This, in turn, could compromise the braking performance, increasing the risk of an accident.

The affected motorcycles, 2023 FLHXSE (CVO Street Glide) and FLTRXSE (CVO Road Glide), were manufactured between May 10, 2023, and September 6, 2023. On September 6, 2023, Harley-Davidson halted production on both bike lines, and on September 13, 2023, a revised clamp was introduced to the production process. Motorcycles produced after these dates are not subject to this recall as the improved part is now in use.

Based on Harley-Davidson's records, approximately 930 CVO Street Glides and 1,282 CVO Road Glides are potentially affected by this recall, totaling around 2,212 motorcycles, which accounts for approximately one percent of the entire production.

Indicators of this issue could include either riders or motorcycle technicians observing that the rear brake line is not positioned correctly between the rear brake caliper and the rear brake master cylinder. Additionally, signs of damage to the rear brake line or the presence of brake fluid either seeping or pooling beneath the motorcycle might be noticeable.

Harley-Davidson has reported receiving three field reports concerning this matter, but none of them have resulted in accidents or injuries. Between September 6, 2023, and September 13, 2023, Harley conducted inspections on the affected motorcycles and temporarily secured the brake lines with a secondary retention strap before implementing the corrected part on September 13, 2023.

Harley-Davidson officially informed its dealership network of this recall between October 10 and October 13, 2023. Owners of the affected motorcycles will receive notifications between October 16 and October 20, 2023.

Owners of the 2023 Harley-Davidson CVO Street Glide and CVO Road Glide motorcycles affected by this recall should promptly schedule a recall service with their local authorized Harley-Davidson dealer. The technicians will replace the rear brake line clamp with an updated component at no cost to the owners.
