Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys®– Harley-Davidson recalling 29k new models due to clutch issue
Harley-Davidson announced on Wednesday that it was issuing a recall for more than 29,000 motorcycles as a result of its hydraulic clutch system. The majority of the recalls affect the 2013 models; however, a sizeable number of 2014’s are also affected.
“The safety of our customers if our highest priority,” said Tony Wilcox, general manager of motorcycle new product delivery for Harley-Davidson. “We have identified potential safety issues and are moving quickly to notify our customers and dealers.”
The issue at hand is that the hydraulic clutch system may not disengage which can make it difficult to slow down or stop.
Harley-Davidson has announced that owners should promptly schedule an inspection with an authorized dealer and they will pick up, inspect, and make any necessary repairs at no cost to the owner; the repairs should take less than one hour to address.
“The inspection and repair of these motorcycles is extremely important so it is critical that our customers contact their dealers immediately,” said Wilcox. “The company is committed to correcting this issue and providing customers with the quality experience and service they expect.”
The models affected were built between May 3 and October 14 and include:
- Touring: FLHTCU, FLHTK, FLHTP, FLHX, FLHXS, FLHTKSE, FLHRSE
- Softail CVO’s and Trikes: FLHTCUTG, FXSBSE, FLSTNSE
