Motorcycle Recall - Buell

NHTSA Campaign ID:  07V026000
Component:  Fuel System, Gasoline: Delivery: Fuel Pump
Manufacturer:  Buell Motorcycle Co.
Recall Date: 01/24/2007
Potential Number of Units Affected: 2044
Defect Summary:
Certain motorcycles may have a vibration at the mounting location of the bank angle sensor which, if combined with the misrouting of various wires that impinge on the sensor or its pigtail, can compromise the isolation of the bank angle sensor.
Consequence Summary:
This may create a false 'tip' signal and cause the engine to quit running while being driven, increasing the risk of a crash.
Corrective Summary:
Dealers will move the bank angle sensor from the original location on the battery tray to a location on the seat latch. The recall is expected to begin on or about March 5, 2007. Owners may contact Buell at 1-414-343-8400.
