Harley-Davidson recalls 27,232 bikes over possible clutch failure


So here’s another recall that affects many thousands of motorcycles – thankfully from out British perspective it appears that so far no UK motorcycles have been effected, but if we hear different we’ll let you know.

The bikes in the recall announced by the National Highway Safety Aministration (NHTSA) are under the spotlight because the clutch master cylinder on the following models might not be able to produce enough pressure to disengage the clutch, more so if the bike has been parked up for a long while.


The models on the recall list are: 2016 Electric Glide Ultra Classic (FLHTCU), Electra Glide Ultra Classic Low (FLHTCUL), Ultra Limited Low (FLHTKL), Ultra Limited (FLHTK), CVO Street Glide (FLHXSE), Street Glide (FLHX), Street Glide Special (FLHXS), Road Glide Special (FLTRXS), Road Glide (FLTRX), Police Electra Glide (FLHTP), Road Glide Ultra (FLTRU), Fat Boy S (FLSTFBS), Softail Slim S (FLSS), and CVO Softail Pro Street Breakout (FXSE) motorcycles.
