View Full Version : 1125R Safety Recall Campaign 0834

06-24-2008, 06:06 PM
Buell Distribution Company, LLC has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists on certain 2008 Buell 1125R model motorcycles built June 19, 2007 through May 30, 2008.

These model motorcycles built between the dates above can experience 5th gear galling on the clutch shaft due to lack of lubrication. This condition can allow the gear to seize to the shaft, resulting in rear wheel lock-up. This could result in an accident, which could cause injury or death to the rider.

We have voluntarily declared this a defect related to motor vehicle safety (Campaign 0834) to allow us to formally recall all affected motorcycles. The remedy of this issue is to add an oil jet to the clutch shaft to increase the lubrication to the 5th gear journal.

In accordance with Federal regulations administrated by NHTSA, Buell Distribution Company, LLC will provide notice to all owners of record of affected products with direction to bring the vehicle in for the recall service.

Any 1125R owners, be sure to go to your dealer and get them to check your VIN number to see if it applies to your bike.
