June 5, 2017 — Harley-Davidson Inc. recalled 57,000 motorcycles because an oil line can come loose and leak oil into the path of the rear tire, increasing the risk of a crash.
Harley-Davidson has received 9 reports of oil lines coming off. They are aware of at least two crashes and one injury caused by the defect.
The recall involves nine models of 2017 Touring motorcycles that were built between July 2, 2016 and May 9, 2017:
- Electra Glide Ultra Classic
- Police Electra Glide
- Police Road King
- Road King
- Road King Special
- Street Glide
- Street Glide Special
- Road Glide
- Road Glide Special
Harley said the problem “could lead to oil on the rear tire, which may result in loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash.”
The problem was blamed on an engine oil cooler line clamp that was not installed correctly. Dealerships will inspect the clamps and fix them for free. The recall is expected to begin on Tuesday, June 6, 2017.
