Motorcycle Recall - CFMOTO

NHTSA Campaign ID:  11V544000
Component:  Service Brakes, Hydraulic
Manufacturer:  CFMOTO Powersports, INC
Recall Date: 11/8/2011
Potential Number of Units Affected: 6405
Defect Summary:
CFMOTO is recalling certain model year 2005 through 2009 CF250T V3, and CF250T V5 automatic motorcycles manufactured from January 1, 2005, through December 31, 2009. These models were built with a left hand rear wheel brake instead of the required right foot operated rear wheel brake. Therefore, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard Number 123, "Motorcycle Controls and Displays."
Consequence Summary:
The absence of standardized motorcycle controls may hinder the operators ability to effectively brake, increasing the risk of a crash.
Corrective Summary:
CFMOTO will notify owners, and dealers will install a right foot control rear wheel brake kit free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on or before May 1, 2012. Owners may contact CFMOTO at 1-888-823-6686.
