Harley Issues Recalls

Harley-Davidson is recalling some motorcycles due to clutch and fuel tank issues.

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Harley-Davidson is recalling more than 105,000 motorcycles from the 2014 model year because their clutches may fail, causing stopped bikes to creep forward and potentially crash.

The Milwaukee company also is recalling 1,384 motorcycles made earlier this year to test for possible fuel tank leaks.

For the clutch issue, Harley-Davidson says dealers will rebuild affected clutch master cylinders for free. The company knows of 19 low-speed tip-over crashes tied to the problem, with three minor injuries reported. Bikes named in that recall include the Electra Glide Ultra Classic and the CVO Road King.

Dealers also will test fuel tanks subject to that recall and replace them for free if any leak from under their caps. No injuries, accidents or fires have been tied to that problem.
