Harley-Davidson Pan America, Sportster S recalled
Harley-Davidson has issued a recall for 3,917 units of the Pan America 1250 and Sportster S. The recall stems from an issue with the TFT instrument cluster, which may not display the speedometer and neutral indicator on startup, when ambient temperatures are below 32 degrees Fahrenheit (or 0 degrees Celsius) .
It’s the second recall for Pan-America of the Bar & Shield brand over the past two months. As of December 2021, 2,689 units have been recalled to resolve an issue with the headquarters base.
The recall documents for the TFT problem mention that the failure is due to an error in the instrument cluster module software. Harley-Davidson dealers will update the software free of charge to resolve the issue. Owners should be notified by February 8, 2022.
Harley has also found that the issue only occurs in freezing temperatures. Once the bike is running, the instrument cluster will warm up after running, after which the speedometer and neutral indicator will display. So if you own a Pan-America or a Sportster S, check to see if this is a problem during a cold start before contacting your local dealer.
