Harley Davidson Issues Recall to Fix Clutches & Fuel Tanks
Harley Davidson is recalling more than 105,000 motorcycles from the 2014 model year. The motor bike manufacturer stated that the clutches may fail, causing stopped bikes to creep forward and potentially crash. They are also recalling 1,384 motorcycles made earlier this year to test for possible fuel tank leaks.
For the clutch issue, the dealers will rebuild affected clutch master cylinders for free, which comes as little to no surprise. The company has said that they know of 19 low speed crashes tied to the clutch issue, with three minor injuries reported. The bikes named in the recall include the Electra Glide Classic and the CVO Road King.
Dealers will also test fuel tanks subject to that recall and replace them for free if any leak from under their caps. No injuries, accidents or fires have been tied to that problem.
