June 5, 2017 — Harley-Davidson Inc. recalled thousands of 2017 Touring motorcycles after reports of the oil line coming off and spraying oil into the path of the rear tire.
There have been 9 reports of displaced oil lines, resulting in two crashes and one minor injury.
Harley-Davidson recalled 57,138 motorcycles globally, including about 46,000 sold in the U.S. because the oil line may come off. The problem “could lead to oil on the rear tire, which may result in loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash,” according to Harley.
The problem is caused by an engine oil cooler line clamp that was installed incorrectly. Harley dealerships will inspect the clamps on the recalled motorcycles and fix them for free, starting June 6, 2017.
The recall involves 9 models of the 2017 Touring motorcycles that were manufactured from July 2, 2016 through May 9, 2017, including:
- Electra Glide Ultra Classic
- Police Electra Glide
- Police Road King
- Road King
- Road King Special
- Street Glide
