MILWAUKEE - Harley-Davidson is recalling nearly 175,000 motorcycles in the U.S. because the brakes may fail. The voluntary recall covers CVO Touring and VSRC bikes—model years 2008 through 2011—equipped with anti-lock brakes.

In July 2016, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration began investigating problems with the brakes after getting 43 complaints, including reports of three crashes and two injuries. The problem is linked to a module that's part of Harley's anti-lock brake system that can corrode and fail without warning.

To find out if your bike may be affected by the recall, enter your VIN on the Harley Safety Recall Webpage. You can locate your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), stamped on the steering head, and also on a label located on the right front down tube.
