Harley-Davidson Inc. has issued another safety recall on its 2014 Project Rushmore motorcycles, this one for a defect that could result in the loss of brake fluid.


The recall is for trikes manufactured from July 24 through Sept. 2, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The recall affects 436 cycles manufactured during this period.

Due to an incorrectly machined part, the trike may have an excessive steering angle that allows the inner fairing to come into contact with a brake fluid reservoir, resulting in a loss of fluid. Also, the steering damper may be damaged.

This is the second recall of Project Rushmore motorcycles. Last month, Harley recalled about 29,000 bikes and trikes for hydraulic clutch system problems.

With the trike recall, Harley-Davidson will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the trikes and make the necessary repairs free of charge, according to NHTSA
