This recall is being performed because the brake hose on the 2009 XB12SS for the front brakes can rub against the front tire.  The rubbing of the brake hose against the motorcycle tire can result in a hole in the brake line and cause hydraulic fluid to leak out and loss of front braking and/or a crash.

This Buell XB12SS recall begins on or before the 21st of September 2009 and is believe to potentially involve 405 motorcycles.
