Harley Davidson voluntarily recalls 29,000 units of 2014 touring motorcycles
Harley Davidson, the American motorcycle manufacturer will recall more than 29,000 motorcycles over a problem in the hydraulic clutch system of the affected motorcycles. The Harley Davidson motorcycles which are affected by this recall, are the 2014 year model of their touring motorcycles.
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.”
