CFMoto Powersports Inc. is recalling certain model year 2005-2009 CF250T V3 and CF250T V5 motorcycles because of the misplacement of the rear wheel brake.
About 6,405 motorcycles were manufactured with a left-side rear wheel brake instead of the required right-side foot-operated rear wheel brake, so the vehicles do not comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 123, “Motorcycle Controls and Displays.” The absence of the brake on the right side of the motorcycle may hinder the rider’s ability to effectively brake, the recall says.
CFMoto will be notifying owners of the affected motorcycles, and CFMoto dealers will be installing a replacement right foot control rear wheel brake. The recall is expected to begin on or before May 1.
