Harley-Davidson has voluntarily recalled more than 29,000 of its touring motorcycles yesterday due to a faulty clutch system. The recalled models include 25,185 touring motorcycles and 3,861 Custom Vehicle Operations and Trikes built between May 3 and October 14 this year.
A statement issued by the company said, “The motorcycles may exhibit a condition in which the hydraulic clutch system may lose the ability to generate enough lift to disengage the clutch.” This may result in the rider having difficulty slowing or stopping the motorcycle, and causing an accident.
A “Do Not Ride” and “Do Not Deliver” notice is in place until the problem is fixed.
If you’ve been injured while using a product that you suspect had a manufacturing flaw or was sold despite a recall, you may have grounds for compensation.
