Harley-Davidson recalls bikes due to ignition-switch glitch

(NBC) — Motorcycle maker Harley-Davidson is recalling 3,300 bikes due to problems with the ignition switch.

This affects the 2014 FXDL DYNA Low Rider.

The company says engine vibration can turn the switches from the “run” to “accessory” position. That can cause the engine to shut off while being driven — and potentially cause a crash.

The company says there have been no crashes or injuries reported from the problem.

Harley says dealers will fix the problem for free.
