2008 Fireblade Recall

My missus phoned me at work this morning to say the postman had delivered a letter from Honda that had to be signed for.

I told her to open it. It detailed a recall for a faulty water pump hose clip caused by engine vibration at the water pump end. Failure could result in the rider being sprayed with boiling hot water. Nice !!

It applies to certain batches of bikes.

Anybody else had one of these ?

Mine was a very early Blade BTW.

Re: 2008 Fireblade Recall

Mine is 01/08 production.
I could smell coolant and the reservoir was down about 2in below min. last time I rode. I have never had this smell before, 1000mi on bike. I was going to stopin dealer today to get some coolant.
Overheating an engine is never a good thing.

Re: 2008 Fireblade Recall

Received my letter this morning and it's going back next Tuesday to be fixed. In the letter it states "In the worst case this could lead to hot water being splashed onto the rider and that the work required should take no more than one hour". The bike is also going in for its 4000 mile service at the same time and I've had no water loss or oil problems.

Re: 2008 Fireblade Recall

I got the letter and spoke to the dealers its a jubilee clip effectively and it needs to be checked in case it works lose under heavy riding/vibration.

My dealer wasnt too fussed to get mine in they will do it when i take the bike back for this oil issue (400 miles done 200 left).
