Yep I got that letter a while back, hose has been replaced. My bike is a B/W model registered last feb, so I guess its an early model. Nealy 9 months on in more or less constant rain and no probs, finish holding up nicely too.

If your worried you hadn't got the letter, and your unsure if your bikes in that range or not, just pop into the dealer (or call them), with your chassis number and they can put it in the system, then get find out what recalls are outstanding.

You can do this with any bike.

Yep, I got the clutch recall letter yesterday. Honda of America is also sending a mechanic to determine why it's burning oil like crazy...2 qts. in 800 miles!
I'm being told they're likely going to replace my engine.

to be continued...

I just received the same letter. I didn't realize that 08 CBR1K had inner clutch problem. Does anyone have any details on what the problem is? Thanks.

rode it home in august. this is my first experience with this type of thing. it is playing on my mind a bit. the clutch feels pretty good in action. a little clunky from neutral to first, but now every time i shift i am wondering is it supposed to be like this?:eek:

It does that from neutral to first so dont worry about that bit, looks like the clutch problem is an American thing as none have suffered here "yet" fingers crossed

Hello,
I also received the letter, took the bike to authorized servce and they replaced the part.

would also like to ask following questions regarding the 08 1000rr.

On the bike there are two ventilation fans,
Does any one know when the left one starts?

Also noted that on the black painted surface of the Exhaust pipe has slightely deformed and changed color.

Has any body noticed above symptoms.

Thanks.
