Harley-Davidson recalling some 2017 models after oil leaks cause crashes

Harley-Davidson is recalling approximately 46,000 motorcycles in the United States because they may spray oil onto the rear tire and cause an accident.

The issue involves an engine oil cooler line clamp that wasn't installed properly on some bikes, according to the Associated Press.

There have been at least nine reports of the lines coming loose, two of which led to crashes, injuring one.

The 2017 models affected are the Electra Glide Ultra Classic, Police Electra Glide, Police Road King, Road King, Road King Special, Street Glide, Street Glide Special, Road Glide and Road Glide Special built from July 2, 2016 through May 9, 2017.

The recall is scheduled to begin on June 6th, with Harley-Davidson dealers handling the repairs.
