Recall Details

  • Mfg Recall Number – 0159

     

    Recall Description: On both original equipment and Harley-Davidson Parts & Accessories intended for these bike models, the hydraulic clutch system may develop a tear in the primary cup (seal) on the master cylinder piston.

     

    Safety Risk Description: If the primary cup (seal) on the master cylinder piston develops a tear, then the system may lose the ability to maintain sufficient lift to keep the clutch disengaged.  If this condition remains undetected, it could allow the motorcycle to “creep” forward from a stop, which could lead to a loss of control of the vehicle possibly causing a crash.

     

    Remedy Description: Owners of the affected motorcycles will be asked to arrange service with an authorized Harley-Davidson dealer, who will confirm that the motorcycle or part is covered by this recall. If covered, the dealer will rebuild the clutch master cylinder using the recall kit provided.  This service will be provided at no charge to the customer.

  • Mfg Recall Number – 0162

     

    Recall Description: A defect that relates to motor vehicle safety exists in certain model year 2015 Tri Glide® (FLHTCUTG) motorcycles.

     

    Safety Risk Description: On some of these motorcycles, the rear brake master cylinder may have been assembled with an incorrect master cylinder piston. In this condition, the piston may not provide proper support to the primary cup (seal). This could allow a tear to develop in the primary cup.

    Safety Risk Description: If this condition remains undetected it could cause the engine to unexpectedly shut off while the motorcycle is being ridden, increasing the risk of a crash.
