Speaking about their latest recall, Harley Davidson revealed, “Some of these motorcycles may exhibit a condition in which the hydraulic clutch system may lose the ability to generate enough lift to disengage the clutch,” because of this, they have also issued a “Do Not Ride” notice to owners and a “Do Not Deliver” notice to Harley-Davidson dealers until the motorcycle is fixed, reports Reuters.
The models affected include 25,185 units of touring motorcycles and 3,861 units of Custom Vehicle Operations and Trikes, all of which manufactured between May 3 and Oct. 14, 2013. The recall is voluntarily, as when it was announced, the US body, NHTSA – National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, was closed due to US Govt. shutdown. But the American motorcycle maker is consistent with proceedings of NHTSA and thus the recall. Speaking about fixing the current problem, Harley Daidson says, “The repairs have been identified and should take less than one hour.”
