WASHINGTON, D.C. - Harley-Davidson is recalling certain model year 2014 Trikes manufactured July 24 through Sept. 2, NHTSA announced.

"Due to an incorrectly machined part, the motorcycle may have an excessive steering angle allowing the inner fairing to contact the rear brake fluid reservoir resulting in a loss of brake fluid. Additionally, the steering damper may be damaged," the recall stated.

Roughly 436 vehicles are affected.

The Motor Co. is contacting owners. Dealers are asked to inspect the trikes and replace the fork stem bracket, as necessary, free of charge. All affected products are covered by the manufacturer's limited warranty, the OEM added. The recall is slated to begin later this month.
