Harley-Davidson Recalls 57,000 Motorcycles Due to Oil-Line Failures

Harley-Davidson is recalling thousands of motorcycles worldwide due to a defect in the vehicles’ oil-lines.

The recall affects 57,000 motorcycles built between July 2016 and May 2017.

The company says an oil-line on the bikes could come loose, leading to oil spilling into the path of the rear tire.

Harley-Davidson blames the issue on an engine oil cooler line clamp not being correctly installed.

So far, at least nine incidents of oil-lines coming off have been reported.

Of those, the issue has caused two crashes and one injury.

Harley dealers will inspect affected motorcycles and make any necessary fixes for free.
