Defect SummaryCertain motorcycles were built with mirrors that were improperly located on the inner fairing.
Consequence SummaryIn this condition, it is not possible to adjust the mirrors properly, thereby not allowing the rider to have the appropriate rearward field of vision, increasing the risk of a crash.
Corrective SummaryAt the option of the owner, the dealer will (1) replace the inner fairing with a new inner that has the mirror mounting holes properly positioned; (2) drill another hole and have the mirrors repositioned. this method will cause the original hole to be exposed outside of the mirror base, which is cosmetically undesirable. the exposed hole would be covered with a decal; or (3) drill another hole and have the mirrors repositioned, then, at a later date, have the mirrors replaced with new mirrors that have a larger base which will cover the original mounting hole. this recall began on october 28, 2005. owners may contact harley-davidson at 414-343-4056.
