749/999 Owners with CRG Levers -NHTSA Bulletin

1990 6
There is an NHTSA Bulletin available for CRG Levers involving the front Brake Lever's listed below. I did a search on the forum here but didn't get any hits back so I am posting this up. I have emailed Constructors Racing Group and am waiting to hear back from them. I will post up their reply once I get it.

YA, locked up on me!!! Luckely I was in control and cruising at a speed were as I was abel to stop and not do a head over front indo! But I did blow my knee out when I got my feet on the ground. (both knees bent side-ways under the sudden weight of my bike, ouch!!!) I wasn't a happy camper! Should I pursue this to CRG or chaulk it up as a freak accident of miss fortune?
I was curious if you'd been using these levers for quite a while or was this incident fairly soon after you installed them...

The reason I ask is that I've been using mine for over a year and didn't keep the stock levers. Track day in a week and I don't really want to be hoping some new levers show before I go...
