Harley-Davidson Motor Company is recalling 177,636 motorcycles due to the secondary clutch actuator cylinder which may leak fluid internally causing the clutch master cylinder to lose the ability to generate enough lift to disengage the clutch, resulting in a loss of control and increasing the risk of a crash.
