Major Harley Davidson Recall
If you own a motorcycle or more importantly a Harley, you may want to check and see if yours falls into the time frame of the recall.A major recall of 46,000 Harley Davidson motorcycles is being done because of faulty oil lines. The company says that a clamp on an engine oil cooler may not have been installed properly. The oil lines can come loose, spill oil all over and cause it to affect the path of the rear tire. Harley says that there have been nine reports of the oil line coming off causing two crashes and one minor injury.
The recall covers certain 2017 Electra Glide, Road King, Street Glide and Road Glide models built from July 2, 2016 through May 9, 2017. The recall officially starts Tuesday and you are encouraged to bring them to your local dealer to inspect and then fix, if needed, free of charge.
