2014 Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Recall

Harley Davidson has recalled a total 22,483 of its 2014 Project Rushmore motorcycles due to clutch-system issues. The first batch of recalls includes 19,597 of the following models: Electra Glide Ultra Classic (FLHTCU), Electra Glide Utlra Limited (FLHTK), Police Electra Glide (FLHTP), Street Glide (FLHX), Street Glide Special (FLHXS), CVO Electra Glide Ultra Limited (FLHTKSE), and the Screamin’ Eagle Road King (FLHRSE).

These 2014 Harley-Davidson motorcycles were manufactured May 3, 2013, through October 14, 2013.

Harley says the clutch master cylinder may allow air into the clutch system. Additionally, the motorcycles may have been assembled with an incorrect clutch release plate.

Harley has also recalled 2,886 of its 2014 Trike (FLHTCUTG), CVO Breakout (FXSBE), and CVO Softail Deluxe (FLSTNSE) motorcycles due to being assembled with incorrect clutch plates.

condition may prevent the clutch from disengaging.

Harley says if the clutch does not disengage, the rider may have difficulty slowing or stopping the motorcycle, increasing the risk of a crash.

Harley-Davidson has already notified owners, and dealers will rebuild the clutch master cylinder and install the proper clutch release plate, as necessary, free of charge.

The recall began in late October 2013. Harley-Davidson’s recall number is 0153. Owners may contact Harley-Davidson at 1-800-258-2464.
