Harley Recalls 2014 Trike Motorcycles for Loss of Brake Fluid2014 Harley-Davidson Trike Motorcycle Recall

Harley-Davidson has recalled 436 of its 2014 Trike Tri Glide Ultra motorcycles due to possible brake-fluid leaks.

The Trikes, part of Harley’s revamped Project Rushmore lineup, were manufactured from July 24, 2013, through September 2, 2013.

Harley says due to an incorrectly machined part, the motorcycle may have an excessive steering angle allowing the inner fairing to contact the rear brake fluid reservoir resulting in a loss of brake fluid. Additionally, the steering damper may be damaged.

Harley says Loss of brake fluid from the rear reservoir would reduce brake performance. Steering damper damage could reduce the rider’s ability to control the motorcycle. Either condition increases the risk of a crash.

This is the second recall of Project Rushmore motorcycles. Last month, The Motor Company recalled 29,000 motorcycles and trikes due to hydraulic clutch system issues.

Regarding the brake-fluid Trike recall, Harley-Davidson will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the trikes and replace the fork stem bracket, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to in late November 2013. Owners may contact Harley-Davidson at 1-800-258-2464. Harley-Davidson’s recall number is 0152.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to safercar.gov.
