Spiegler is recalling
some of the three-way manifolds, which are mounted on the right fork of the LT. This is the manifold that splits the brake line into two, in order to service the front brake calipers.
According to them, a supplier changed up the part manufacturer, without going through Spiegler for specifications/material approval. The bad manifolds are failing
; this is not a part you want to have fail (unless you enjoy having no front brakes).
They are now getting the correct part directly from the Swiss manufacturer.
Tallyho (of this site) and I ordered ours in mid-July, and installed the same day; his failed. Check this thread
, to read what happened to Bob.
If you have replaced your OEM lines (on the front) within the last few months, I suggest you call Spiegler, with your invoice number in hand, so they can trace. If you did not buy directly from Spiegler, call your supplier.
Although failures appear to be a small percentage of the units recently shipped, it's obviously a major issue; Spiegler is sending me a replacement (mine has not failed), and DOT-4 fluid for the bleed. They are embarrassed, and stepping up to the plate. Still love my Spieglers; the performance improvement was incredible.
