 Rider experienced 2nd degree burns due to heat emanating from the engine during hot weather and stop-and-go traffic; rear cylinder shuts off and then motorcycle runs poorly (no acceleration); also affects braking (rear brake gets mushy); has resulted in discoloration of horn and air filer cover; oil pressure drops to 0; have had to replace 2 qts. of oil in 1300 miles; literally was smoking; ambient temp. pegged out at 120 degrees. extreme safety hazard to rider and dealer can offer no solution; can't even tune the motorcycle because they can't dyno a trike.
ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING - EXHAUST SYSTEM

 Heat coming off the exhaust/engine makes the bike unbearable to ride...ecspecialy when the weather gets warmer and you are stopped or going slowly in traffic. it will burn your right calf severely and harley davisdon refuses to admit the problem or offer a remedy for it. also rear brakes squeal constantly and are barely adequate for stopping.
FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE

 On the above date this vehicle caught on fire less than a minute after starting it. i had rode this vehicle to work and was at work for around two hours. upon leaving work, i started the motorcycle without getting on and was reaching to put items in the trunk when the fire started. when walking up to the vehicle i did not smell gasoline or notice any leaking fuel before starting the motorcycle.the motorcycle was engulfed in flames very quickly. i was very close to being burned. some co-workers and myself attempted to put out the fire, but were unable to get close enough due to the intense heat and flames. the fire department arrived fairly quickly to put the fire out, but the vehicle was a total loss. the fire marshal stated that it was probably due to mechanical failure. to this date harley-davidson has not responded to my inquiries about this incident and has refused to take any responsibility for this fire.
