Harley-Davidson has recalled 29,000 of its 2014 touring motorcycles because of a problem with the hydraulic clutch system, the U.S. motorcycle maker said. “Do Not Ride” notices are being sent out to owners of affected models, reports Reuters via CNBC on Oct. 16.
The affected models were built between May and October 2013. Problems with a hydraulic clutch could cause a malfunction, making it difficult for riders to stop or slow their bikes properly.
"Some of these motorcycles may exhibit a condition in which the hydraulic clutch system may lose the ability to generate enough lift to disengage the clutch," the Milwaukee-based company said in a statement.
Recalled models include 25,185 touring motorcycles and 3,861 Custom Vehicle Operations and Trikes built between May 3 and Oct. 14, 2013.
The repairs are expected to take less than one hour.
