Harley-Davidson recalled 46,000 motorcycles on Thursday because of clutch issues. This recall only affects Harley-Davidson owners in the United States.
The bike models that were affected by the recall are specific 2014 and 2015 Police Electra Glide, Street Glide, Electra Glide, Ultra Limited, Road Glide, and Road King models.
The clutch faults that have been reported apparently result in the clutch not having the ability to disengage. This is very dangerous because you cannot control a bike that is in gear when it is started. Several Harley-Davidson owners complained about this problem, which is why the recall has taken place.
Harley-Davidson also has alerted motorcyclists that gas bubbles can cause this problem with the clutch. This problem’s likeliness increases if the bike has been parked for a long time. For those of you that live in the northern states, you may be more likely to have a clutch fault. This is obviously because bikes stay parked for long periods of time during the cold and snowy months.
The company has also stated that their dealers will be rebuilding the clutch master cylinders to assure that their consumer base is safe.
If you own any of the bikes mentioned, we urge you to have the cylinder checked so your clutch does not malfunction.
