Yup, I am in the process of posting all Sportster and Buell recall information in one place so that it will be available if needed. Over the next few weeks you will see more that are even older.

New Guy here and just wondering, if you have some of these problems will a Harley Dealer still fix them even though it is like 19 years later?
