MILWAUKEE – Harley-Davidson Inc. has issued a safety recall on its 2014
Project Rushmore motorcycles, citing a defect that could result in the
loss of brake fluid.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the
recall is for trikes manufactured from July 24 through Sept. 2.
The trike may have an excessive steering angle that allows the inner
fairing to come into contact with a brake fluid reservoir, resulting in
a loss of fluid, due to an incorrectly machined part. The steering
damper may also be damaged.
This is the second recall associated with the Project Rushmore
motorcycles. Last month, Harley recalled about 29,000 bikes and trikes
for hydraulic clutch system problems.
Harley-Davidson will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the trikes
and make the necessary repairs free of charge, according to the NHTSA.
