San Antonio Buell motorcycle drivers are at risk of serious injury or death because of a manufacturing defect. Some Buell motorcycles, manufactured by Harley-Davidson Motor Company, are subject to a serious safety recall. Buell is recalling a total of 3,316 motorcycles manufactured in 2008 and 2009.
The brake lines on the subject motorcycles were improperly routed and could come into contact with the front tire. This potentially could cause the brake line to leak and result in brake failure. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has stated that the condition could cause the driver and rider to crash, resulting in injury or death. Dealers will re-route the front brake line and replace any worn brake lines free of charge.
