The recall affects certain 2017 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 motorcycles built from July 2, 2016 through May 9, 2017.

Harley says a clamp on an engine oil cooler line may not have been installed properly.

The company ordered the recall after receiving at least nine reports of oil lines coming off. The problem has been linked to two crashes and one injury, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Dealers will inspect the clamps on affected models and fix them free of charge. The recall is expected to begin Tuesday.

Separately, NHTSA said last summer that it was investigating complaints from Harley-Davidson owners who said their motorcycle brakes failed without warning.

The investigation covered about 430,000 bikes equipped with anti-lock braking systems from model years 2008 through 2011.

Riders reported that the brakes did not work, causing one driver to crash into a garage door. NHTSA received at least 43 complaints, including three reports of crashes and two injuries.
