Buell Recalling More Than 400 XB12Ss


Buell is recalling about 405 units of its 2009 XB12Ss for a front brake line that may contact the front tire.

Contact with the front tire could cause a hole to develop in the front brake line, allowing fluid to leak and an ineffective front brake.

Dealers are asked to inspect the front brake line. If the line is undamaged, a guide is to be installed. If the line is damaged, it should be replaced and re-routed.

The recall is expected to begin on or before Sept. 21.
