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.
If the clutch cannot be disengaged, a loss of control may result, increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
Harley-Davidson will notify owners, and dealers will install a new secondary clutch actuator piston assembly, free of charge.
The recall was expected to begin November 5, 2018.
Owners may contact Harley-Davidson customer service at 1-800-258-2464. Harley-Davidson's number for this recall is 0173.
