The motorcycle maker Harley Davidson has issued a recall for certain touring motorcycles and trikes from its Custom Vehicle Operation (CVO) from model years 2009-2012. The reason for the recall is because the rear brake light switch can become damaged by heat from the bike's exhaust systems. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration states the recall includes 250,757 models built from June 6, 2008 through September 16, 2011. According to the report the company knows of one alleged crash that can be attributed to the defect.

The company says that excessive heat may cause the switch to fail to activate the brake light when applying the brakes. This problem could also result in brake fluid leaking that can stop the rear brake from working properly. Harley Davidson states that its dealers will replace the rear brake light switch free of charge. The recall is expected to being around October 31, 2011.
