Second LiveWire S2 Del Mar recall: bolts not properly tightened

LiveWire had to roll out a second recall for the new S2 Del Mar in a short time. In several units, various bolted connections appear not to be screwed at the correct moment, including the rear axle and the rear shock absorber.

Where mince is made, there are chips, as the saying goes, but at LiveWire they have made it very big: in the space of less than a month, the Americans had to roll out two recalls for the S2 Del Mar, the second model of the electric subsidiary of Harley-Davidson.

At the beginning of this year, the LiveWire Service System was informed of three motorcycles that were allegedly delivered to a dealer with loose rear axles and/or lower rear shock bolts.

The Technical Subcommittee (TSC) was notified of this issue, which initiated a formal investigation into the matter. The TSC requested a screening of engines within LiveWire. During the screening, the TSC determined that only engines inspected by an external subcontractor were affected.

The TSC informed the Field Action Committee (FAC) and also requested that additional units be inspected to determine if there may also be problems with other connections. That further investigation indeed revealed other loose bolt connections.

At the LiveWire dealer, the S2 Del Mar with production dates between July 31 and November 30, 2023 must now be subjected to a thorough inspection, during which the relevant bolt connections are tightened in accordance with the correct tightening torque. If damage has occurred due to that loose connection, it will be repaired free of charge.
