On Friday, Harley-Davidson announced that it is recalling around 46,000 motorcylces in the U.S.

According to a report from the Associated Press, the Milwaukee motorcycle maker is recalling the bikes because an oil line can come loose and spew oil into the path of the rear tire. Harley-Davidson says a poorly installed clamp on an engine cooler is the likely culprit.

Harley-Davidson says that, to date, it has received nine reports of oil lines coming off. So far, this problem has caused two crashes and a minor injury.

The recall covers some 2017 models, including the Road King, Electra Glide and Street Glide.
