Harley-Davidson issued a recall on Oct. 16, 2013 for more than 29,000 Touring motorcycles citing a safety issue with bike's hydraulic clutch system.
The recall includes select 2014 Touring motorcycles, Softail CVOs and Trikes. All recalled models are listed below.
In a press release issued on Wednesday, the company states that it is "voluntarily recalling certain 2014 Touring motorcycles" and that they have issued a Do Not Ride notice to owners for the models listed below.
Additionally, Harley-Davidson has issued a Do Not Deliver notice to all Harley-Davidson dealers until the issue is fixed.
The hydraulic clutch system on the recalled motorcycles may lose the ability to generate enough lift to disengage the clutch in some of the motorcycles that were recalled on Wednesday.
Harley-Davidson states that if the clutch does not disengage the way it is supposed to, the rider may have difficulty slowing or stopping the motorcycle. This could result in an accident.
If you have one of the models listed below, do not ride the bike. Instead, contact any authorized Harley-Davidson dealer for a safety inspection. The inspection should take about one hour. Dealers have been authorized to pick up the bike and make repairs at not charge to the owner.
