Harley-Davidson recall 27,000 bikes
Harley-Davidson have recalled 27,000 motorcycles from their 2016 line-up over an issue with the clutch not disengaging in certain situations.
The recall notice, published on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, states: "In the affected motorcycles, the clutch master cylinder may lose the ability to generate enough lift to disengage the clutch, especially if the motorcycle has been parked for an extended period of time.
"When the engine is running and the motorcycle is in gear, if the clutch cannot be fully disengaged, the motorcycle may move unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a crash."
