August 4, 1999
Buell M2 Cyclone Year: 1999
Dates of Manufacture: January 1998 - April 1999
Defect: Certain motorcycles were manufactured with
an incorrect air cleaner component. This component could restrict
air flow into the float bowl of the carburetor, causing fuel to
overflow, which could result in a fire. This could also prevent
sufficient fuel flow, which could cause the engine to misfire or
Remedy: Dealers will inspect the float bowl vent
assembly for proper venting and correct this condition if necessary.
Owner notification was expected to begin during July 1999. Owners
who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should
contact Buell at 1-414-343-8400.
