Harley-Davidson Motor Company is recalling 45,589 model year 2017 Electric Glide Ultra Classic (FLHTCU), Police Electra Glide (FLHTP), Police Road King (FLHP), Road King (FLHR), Road King Special (FLHRXS), Street Glide (FLHX), Street Glide Special (FLHXS), Road Glide (FLTRX), and Road Glide Special (FLTRXS) motorcycles.
A clamp used to secure an engine oil cooler line may have been improperly installed, resulting in the engine oil cooler line detaching. That could cause a sudden loss of oil -- potentially into the path of the rear tire -- increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
Harley-Davidson will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and correct the oil cooler line clamps, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on June 6, 2017.
Owners may contact Harley-Davidson customer service at 1-800-258-2464. Harley-Davidson's number for this recall is 0170.
