Harley-Davidson is recalling nearly 46,000 motorcycles in the
U.S. because they could stay in gear due to clutches that wonít
The recall covers certain Electra Glide,
Ultra Limited, Police Electra Glide, Street Glide, Road Glide
and Road King models from the 2014 and 2015 model years.
Harley-Davidson Motor Co. said in documents that gas bubbles
can cause the clutch master cylinder to lose its ability to
fully disengage the clutch, especially if the bike has been
parked for a long time. This could cause a rider to lose control
of the motorcycle if itís started in gear.
The problem was found through customer complaints. Harley
reported 27 crashes and four minor injuries.
Dealers will flush the clutch and rebuild the master
cylinder. The recall was to start April 23.
