Cape Breton Post - - BUSINESS EXTRA -

Har­ley-David­son is re­call­ing more than 185,000 mo­tor­cy­cles in the U.S. be­cause the sad­dle­bags can come loose and fall off, in­creas­ing the risk of a crash.

The re­call cov­ers cer­tain 2014 and 2015 Road King, Street Glide, Elec­tra Glide Ul­tra Clas­sic, Ul­tra Lim­ited, Po­lice Road King, Po­lice Elec­tra Glide and CVO Ul­tra Lim­ited bikes. Also af­fected are 2014 CVO Road King and the 2015 Elec­tra Glide Ul­tra Clas­sic Low, Ul­tra Lim­ited Low, Road Glide, CVO Street Glide and CVO Road Glide Ul­tra mo­tor­cy­cles.

Har­ley says it found the prob­lem through war­ranty claims and traced it to mount­ing hard­ware. Deal­ers will re­place the hard­ware free of charge start­ing July 27.

The com­pany said in doc­u­ments filed with U.S. safety reg­u­la­tors that it had no re­ports of crashes or in­juries as of June.
