I posted this on the main wee thread but here it is again.

Transport Canada posted info on the recall of 185 Canadian units. The fix involves replacing the front brake brakelight switch.

??? Mine too ???

This might be a daft question but I will ask it anyways. How do we know if our bikes are the ones affected. I bought my '12 wee a few weeks ago from a local dealer, would thy have performed this work before the sale?

It was a word wide recall of early models only. The brake switch problem would have been handled already.

I took delivery of my 2012 bike the end of March 2012 and the VIN was higher than those affected.

Glad someone keeps up with this type of stuff! Thanks guys.
I pick-up my new 2012 Wee on Saturday. I'll be sure to ask about the recall.

Your bike would definately not have been affected unless it was a used bike manufactured at end of 2011. The recall was for the early first batch of 2012 models and these were sold quickly, many were already pre-ordered.
Nice country up there although very much in the snow belt. I spent many summers at a cottage on silver birch beach just beyond Thunder bay.

I know exactly how you feel, I was in your position exactly two weeks ago! I had a lousy sleep the night before I picked my Glee up, and an even worse sleep the next night because I was plotting my 2nd, 3rd, and fourth rides on it.

It's like Christmas at Easter time every year for me. It's the same DL, but I itch just like that kid, every year now for the past four. I get to unwrap it again! Now, go away White Christmas, I wanna ride.

I don't see the vin range.. can someone point me to it please?
Model DL650AL2 - Vin JS1C7111200100001- JS1C7111200100209 in Australia. I looked again and couldn't find a VIN list in North America.

It looks like only 210 bikes were sold before the problem was caught. The VIN on my bike is way out of that range but the front brake switch has a white dot on it indicating bikes that had the switch replaced post build are not included in that range.
Are all the parts of the vin significant in this? The first part of my vin looks different. I know there is a check digit in there that wouldn't count in any event. My last 7 digits are 2100093.

I didn't realize this was in the Canadian forum until just now.

I can understand how you would get the Canadian and Australian Forums mixed up! :)
