WASHINGTON, D.C. - Harley-Davidson is recalling 3,300 FXDL Dyna Low Rider motorcycles to fix a problem with the ignition switch on units modified to rev higher than 5,600 rpm.

The recall affects 2014.5 model year Low Riders built from Jan. 6 through June 19. "In the affected motorcycles, certain optional performance electronic control module calibrations may allow higher engine rpms that could result in engine vibrations that cause the ignition switch to move from the "IGN" (ignition on) to "ACC" (accessory only) position, which will shut the engine off," The Motor Co. told NHTSA.

If the vibration causes the ignition switch to move to the accessory-only position, it would stall the engine, increasing the risk of a crash.

Harley dealers are asked to replace the engine mount bracket assembly and ignition switch knob free of charge.
