Biker safety is number one priority with for Harley-Davidson and that is why they have recalled 46,000 of its motorcycles.
The recall is within the United States after complaints were made on clutch problems where they were not fully disengaging, basically leaving the motorcycles becoming stuck in gear.
Harley models part of the recall include certain Street Glide, Police Electra Glide, Road Glide, Electra Glide, Ultra Limited and Road King models ranging from 2014 to 2015.
The main Harley problem is to do with gas bubbles occurring, which is then causing the clutch master cylinder to lose its capability to disengage the clutch. This means the Harley rider could easily lose control of the bike if started in gear.
At this given time it seems to be a recall for USA riders only, it has not yet been reported if those in the UK are affected.
Another Harley recall is to do with the May 12, 2014, to March 9, 2015XG500 and XG750 motorcycles. Reports suggest 8,900 models have been made without a rear reflector assembly. If you own these models Harley-Davidson will let owners know and then fit free of charge.
