Harley-Davidson has issued a voluntary recall of certain 2014 Touring models to address a clutch issue.
The recall affects just over 29,000 motorcycles. Touring models include the FLHTCU, FLHTK, FLHTP, FLHX, FLHXS, FLHTKSE and FLHRSE. Also affected are the FLHTCUTG, FXSBSE and FLSTNSE models built between May 3, 2013 and Oct. 14, 2013.
“We have identified potential safety issues and are moving quickly to notify our customers and dealers,” said Harley-Davidson general manager of motorcycle new product delivery, Tony Wilcox.
The affected motorcycles may exhibit a condition in which the hydraulic clutch can fail to disengage the clutch completely. If this happens it may be difficult to stop the motorcycle, which could result in an accident. Because of this, Harley has issued a “Do Not Ride” notice.
Owners of affected motorcycles are to contact their dealer, who will pick up the bike make the necessary repairs at no cost to the owner. The repair should take less than one hour to perform.
