Harley-Davidson Recalls 238,380 Motorcycles for Clutch Defect

Jarod Cassidy2 years ago

Harley-Davidson announced Tuesday plans to recall roughly 238,300 motorcycles due to clutch problems that could result in an increased risk of crash.

Details of the Harley Davidson Clutch Recall

According to USA Today, the recall affects all model year 2017 and 2018 Harley Davidson Touring, Trike, and CVO Touring models as well as certain 2017 Harley Davidson Softails.

The National Highway Traffic Safety and Transportation Administration (NHTSA) says that the faulty clutches can leak fluid to the point that the clutch does not have enough life to disengage the bikes from gears. The agency says this can cause riders to lose control and crash.

Dealers will install a new secondary clutch actuator piston assembly to resolve the issue. Repairs will be made at no cost owners.
