Harley-Davidson is recalling certain model-year 2011 Softails because of an engine stalling issue.
The bikes were manufactured from June 7, 2010, through Oct. 8, 2010. The recall only includes Softails that had a security system kit installed as an accessory.
Harley-Davidson says the body control modules (BCM) have a case that may not have been properly sealed during production; an improper seal may allow water intrusion into the BCM, which may cause the engine to stall. The BCM part numbers are 69991-11, and 69993-11.
The recall is expected to begin about Feb. 21, and Harley will fix the problem for free.
Owners may contact Harley-Davidson at 1-414-343-4056, or contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Vehicle Safety Hotline 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to safecar.gov.
On the NHTSA Web site, the recall campaign ID Number is : 11V037000
