Harley-Davidson has issued its second recall of 2015. The Motor Company has recalled nearly 46,000 of its touring motorcycles due to clutch disengagement issues.

Harley said Friday that the motorcycles affected in the recall include 2014 and 2015 Electra Glide, Ultra Limited, Police Electra Glide, Street Glide, Road Glide and Road King models.

Harley reports that due to gas bubbles in the clutch master cylinder, the clutch is unable to fully disengage. The risk is greater if the bike has been parked for a long time, Harley says. If this occurs, the bike could remain stuck in gear, increasing the risk of a crash.

To date, Harley reported 27 crashes and four injuries due to this issue.

Speaking in a release, Harley says ”First and foremost, we apologize to our customers for this issue. We’re riders, too, so share in the frustration. Customer safety is our first priority.”

Recall notices are already being issues, and Harley will flush and rebuild the clutch master cylinder free of charge.

Harley’s first recall of 2015 arrived in January, and affected Softail and Dyna owners. Harley reported that 19,015 of these motorcycle could possibly suffer from corroding bolt issues on the front-brake master cylinder.
