Recalls Involving Ducatis and Harleys

• Ducati is recalling 732 of its 2009 1198 S, 1098 R and F1098 S Streetfighter models. The manufacturer said the right fork could develop a crack, which “may lead to a loss of steering control, possibly resulting in a crash.”

• Harley-Davidson is recalling about 11,000 of its 2008 and 2009 FLSTSB, its 2008 FXSTSSE2 and 2009 FXSTSSE3 models because the acorn stud at the brake reaction link may fall out. “If this occurs the front brake and fender assembly would no longer be adequately retained. This condition could lead to a crash and potential injury or death to the rider,” Harley said.
