    2001 XSL Race questions....

    so I picked up a factory stock 01 XSL race that had been in storage for the past 8+ years. noticed the recall online before buying it and asked the original owner if he had said recall done he said he did not and he never had an issue.. The bike is pretty damn flawless except for needing tires/tubes due to dry rotting there are literally no dents/dings and hardly ANY scratches. Everything works and it even came with a cat eye 2! Where can I go to have the recall done or is it too late and I should just consult my LBS for help/replacement? Just purchased new tubes/tires/liners and I cant wait to go riding!

    Nobody? The local LBS is no longer a DB dealer. only sports authority and REI. But they said if i cant get it recall covered they would work with me on fixing it! Heres a pic of her with new tires and tubes!

    well called the DB headquarters and it's a lifetime recall on the bike and free repair at any authorized dealer so im going to go speak with the local dealer/sports authority and see what can be worked out! They told me what to look for as to whats original/recall material and what was put in place once recalled to the BB lockring/assembly. Will update once I hear back or get her fixed! I just started riding so the last thing I want is broken crank axle on the trail!
