Harley-Davidson recalls nearly 178K brand-new bikes

Harley-Davidson Motor Company (Harley-Davidson) is recalling nearly 178,000 2017-2018 motorcycles according to the NHTSA.

The secondary clutch actuator cylinder may leak fluid internally and the clutch master cylinder may lose the ability to generate enough lift to disengage the clutch, according to the recall notice. If the clutch cannot be disengaged then the rider might lose control of the bike.

Dealers will install a new secondary clutch actuator piston assembly, free of charge.
