If you are the owner of a 2017 touring model from Harley-Davidson, there is a good chance that your bike is in need of a safety recall, as the Bar & Shield brand is recalling 45,589 units from those its sold for this model year.

The recall includes nine 2017 models, the 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).

The crux of the recall is that a clamp used to secure an engine oil cooler line may have been improperly installed.

To remedy the situation, Harley-Davidson will notify affected owners, and Harley-Davidson dealers will inspect and correct the oil cooler line clamps, as necessary, and free of charge.

This recall is expected to begin on June 6, 2017. Owners may contact Harley-Davidson customer service at 1-800-258-2464, reference Harley-Davidson’s recall number: 0170. As always, the NHTSA is also available at 1-888-327-4236 and safercar.gov.
