Harley-Davidson has decided to recall nearly 46,000 motorcycles in the US because they could stay in gear due to clutches that won’t fully disengage.
Harley-Davidson says in documents that gas bubbles can cause the clutch master cylinder to lose its ability to fully disengage the clutch, especially if the bike has been parked for a long time. This could cause a rider to lose control of the motorcycle if it’s started in gear.
The problem was found through customer complaints.
Harley-Davidson reported 27 crashes and four minor injuries.
