If you’re one of the few people who managed to get their hands on 2010 model year Buell XB12X or XB12XT, you may also be 1 of the 23 owners affected by Buell’s recall for the bikes’ incorrectly manufactured right-hand side footpeg.
Because of a manufacturing defect, the 2010 Buell XB12X & XB12XT footpeg could move significantly out of position, and thus needs to be replaced by a dealer. Dealers will replace the defective footpeg mount with a new footpeg mount that was manufactured to the correct specifications. This service will be performed free of charge.
The safety recall is expected to begin on or before December 14, 2009. Owners may contact Buell Distribution Company at 1-414-343-8400 and reference Buell recall #: 0840.
As always, owners may also contact the NHSTA’s vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236, or go to safercar.gov.
