  • From 1970 to present, the frame is stamped with VIN numbers and the engine numbers do not apply to VIN.
  • Anti-theft numbers are also printed on some pre-70 frames. 1)

Parts Catalog Issues noted in parts catalogs

  • -67 catalog only shows a picture of a K Model frame.
  • -70 catalog does not show the part number for the 70 H frame.
    • 1967-1969 XLH has a -67 part# where 71 XLH has a -67B part#. So 1970 XLH frame may have been a -67A part#.

l973 XL, XLCH Frame Reinforcement / Tail Lamp Mod

A service bulletin was issued for SAFETY DEFECT CODE 023, Click Here to download TSB# 656.

All l973 XL and XLCH frames:
Corrective modification was required to prevent possible breakage at the welded junction of the frame tubes and the rear fender and shock absorber support bracket.
Some cases of breakage reported was caused by heavy stress concentration in this location.

In conjunction with this recall program, a further improvement in tail lamp wiring was to be made to correct the short circuit problem originally communicated in TSB# 650.
The rear fender support attaching bolts were to be relocated to raise the fender rear end and provide more clearance between the tire and taillight wires.
(to prevent possible short circuit caused by the tire rubbing through wire insulation under abnormal rear end loading)

A Frame Brace and Fender Support Kit (47420-74) was issued to make these changes. Below is the kit.
Included in the kit:
