Harley-Davidson has issued a recall covering 14 different models due to a potential issue with the bikes’ clutch.

The recall includes certain model year 2016 Electra Glide Ultra Classic (FLHTCU), Electra Glide Ultra Classic Low (FLHTCUL), Ultra Limited Low (FLHTKL), Ultra Limited (FLHTK), CVO Street Glide (FLHXSE), Street Glide (FLHX), Street Glide Special (FLHXS), Road Glide Special (FLTRXS), Road Glide (FLTRX), Police Electra Glide (FLHTP), Road Glide Ultra (FLTRU), Fat Boy S (FLSTFBS), Softail Slim S (FLSS), and CVO Softail Pro Street Breakout (FXSE) motorcycles. In total, some 27,232 units are affected.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says the clutch master cylinder in affected motorcycles may lose the ability to generate enough lift to disengage the clutch, especially if the motorcycle has been parked for an extended period of time.

Glad I'm not affected by this, but thanks for sharing it. Might save someone some trouble.
