A rare recall is issued in the motorcycle world due to a possible safety issue.

About 29,000 bikes includes a ‘‘Do Not Ride’’ notice to owners and a ‘‘Do Not Deliver’’ notice to dealers until the cycle is fixed.

Harley-Davidson is voluntarily recalling several 2014 models because of a hydraulic clutch system that might not disengage the clutch, making it hard to slow or stop.

The company wants owners of affected motorcycles to contact an authorized Harley-Davidson dealer immediately to arrange for an inspection. The dealer will pick up, inspect and make the necessary repairs at no cost to the owner. The repairs have been identified and should take less than one hour.

The safety of our customers is our highest priority.

We have identified potential safety issues and are moving quickly to notify our customers and dealers. The inspection and repair of these motorcycles is extremely important, so it’s critical that our customers with affected vehicles contact their dealers immediately. We apologize for this circumstance. The company is committed to correcting this issue and providing customers with the quality experience and service they expect.” – Tony Wilcox, Harley-Davidson General Manager of Motorcycle New Product Delivery.

The recalls affect Touring motorcycles models FLHTCU, FLHTK, FLHTP, FLHX, FLHXS, FLHTKSE and FLHRSE, plus Softail CVOs and Trikes, models FLHTCUTG, FXSBSE and FLSTNSE, built between May 3, 2013, and Oct. 14, 2013.
