Harley-Davidson made the news again for recalling more bikes, this time for an issue with the fuel cap in certain models and the clutch master cylinder in other. In both cases, the recall is voluntary and Harley will repair or replace components as needed free of charge. The Motor Company will reach out to bike owners, but if you’d like to know immediately if your bike is part of either recall, both Harley-Davidson and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have VIN search programs on their sites to let you type in your VIN and check on recalls.
1. Certain model year 2015 XG500 and XG750 motorcycles manufactured from June 11, 2014, to August 14, 2014 may be recalled due to a fuel tank filler neck issue - the fuel cap may not properly seal therefore increasing the risk of vehicle fires. Harley will examine the fuel cap seal and if there is a leak, will replace the gas tank for free.
2. Certain model year 2014 Electra Glide Ultra Classic (FLHTCU), Ultra Limited (FLHTK), Police Electra Glide (FLHTP), Street Glide Special (FLHXS), Street Glide (FLHX), Tri Glide Ultra (FLHTCUTG), CVO Limited (FLHTKSE), CVO Road King (FLHRSE), CVO Breakout (FXSBSE), Electra Glide Ultra Classic Twin Cooled (FLHTCUTC), Ultra Limited Shrine (FLHTK SHRINE), Street Glide Shrine (FLHX SHRINE), and CVO Softail Deluxe (FLSTNSE) may have a component in the clutch master cylinder which could fail, reducing the pressure to keep the clutch engaged. Harley will rebuild the clutch for those vehicles effected.
