Ignition switch problems that have plagued General Motors and Chrysler have turned up in the motorcycle business.

Harley-Davidson is recalling more than 4,500 FXDL Dyna Low Rider bikes worldwide because engine vibration can turn the switches from “on” to “accessory.” If the switch goes to “accessory,” the engine can shut off while being driven and potentially cause a crash.

The recall covers motorcycles from the 2014 ½ model year, including more than 3,300 in the United States.

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