Motorcycle Consumer News-February 2012-CFMoto is recalling certain model year 2005 through 2009 CF250TV3, and CF250TV5 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. Therefor, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard Number 123, "Motorcycle Controls and Displays." The absence of standardized motorcycle controls may hinder the operators ability to effectively brake, increasing the risk of a crash. CFMoto will notify owners, and dealers will install a right foot control rear wheel brake kit, free of charge. CFMoto is still developing its notification and recall remedy schedule. Owners may contact CFMoto at 888-823-6686. NHTSA Campaign ID#: 11V544000

Under certain conditions, there is a possibility that the Combined Braking Systems secondary master cylinder may cause the rear brake to drag. Unexpected braking increases the risk of a crash, and riding with the rear brake dragging may general enough heat to cause the rear brake to catch fire.

Owners may contact Honda customer service at 866-784-1870. Hondas recall campaign number is S03. NHTSA campaign ID #: 11V567000.
