DETROIT — Harley-Davidson is recalling more than 185,000 motorcycles in the U.S. because the saddlebags can come loose and fall off, increasing the risk of a crash.

The recall covers certain 2014 and 2015 Road King, Street Glide, Electra Glide Ultra Classic, Ultra Limited, Police Road King, Police Electra Glide and CVO Ultra Limited bikes. Also affected are 2014 CVO Road King and the 2015 Electra Glide Ultra Classic Low, Ultra Limited Low, Road Glide, CVO Street Glide and CVO Road Glide Ultra motorcycles.

Harley says it found the problem through warranty claims and traced it to mounting hardware. Dealers will replace the hardware free of charge starting July 27.

The company said in documents filed with U.S. safety regulators that it had no reports of crashes or injuries as of June.
