 Tl* the contact owns a 2008 harley davidson flhtcuse3 motorcycle. the contact was driving approximately 65 mph and smelled a strong odor of carbon dioxide. the vehicle was driven to the side of the road. the contact resumed operation to his residence; after waiting two hours due to the exposure of the carbon dioxide, the vehicle was towed twice to an authorized dealer for the identical failure. there was a prior recall repair performed per nhtsa campaign id number 08v357000 (fuel system, gasoline:storage:tank assembly:filler pipe and cap). the recall repair was insufficient and the failure continued to occur. in addition, there were unknown service repairs performed on the vehicle. the contact was concerned about the potential safety hazard. the failure mileage was 3,000. the vehicle had not been repaired when the complaint was filed.
 I wish to file a complaint against the dunlop d407f tires which came oem on my 2009 harley flhtcuse4. my tires started experiencing severe cupping around 12k miles and harley would not cover them under any of their warranties. i had to ride all the way across the country on this dangerous tire to try to get it replaced by my dealer which never happened. the tire now has 17k miles on it with severe cupping and less than 3/32 of tread in the bad areas. the good sections of the tire (the leading edge of the tread pattern) probably have 15k miles left. i believe the severe bouncing of this tire may have caused the radio on the bike to die. i believe dunlop has discontinued this tire after only a few months of production because they are aware of the problem. harley now uses the d408f tire which is basically the same tire with the tread backwards. a cupping tire is especially dangerous around corners and in rain and i feel adamant that these tires need to be taken off the road. harley will not replace these tires because they go by percent of tread wear at the most wore part of the tread pattern, not by the least wore part which looks brand new. *tr
