Honda Recall

Hey all. I received a phone call from the dealership I bought my bike from informing me that the fuel tank on my 06 CBR1000RR has been recalled. Apparently there have been problems with them leaking fuel causing a fire hazard. I've scheduled an appointment this Saturday to have a safety inspection done. I'm not 100% sure, but logic would dictate that the 07 models might have the same issue. I suggest you contact your nearest dealer and query them about your specific model. So, heads up, and good luck.

Re: Honda Recall

It might be in the mail. I would think that the dealers are informed first, since they will be the ones replacing the tank if that needs to be done. Perhaps my dealer felt it necessary to give a call to their patrons. I'm just letting everyone know about it. Or perhaps phone Honda for verification.

Re: Honda Recall

I know its nothing to do with the 600RR/1000RR, but a batch of the CBR954RRs were recalled when they were made as the bottom of the forks would corrode and could even cause the whole front wheel assy to come off.

I dont know if it affected everyone in the UK, or even if it affected people abroad, but its something to look into.

Re: Honda Recall

**Taken From A Previous Thread**

The Cause
The fracture occurs as a result of stress corrosion cracking brought on by the formation of corrosion between the steel front fork tube and the alloy catsing. This corrosion normally only occurs as a result of use in winter conditions, where corrosive rock salt has been extensively used on the roads to aid in snow and ice control. The possibility of this occuring is extremely low on nay machine, especially those that have not or will not be used during such road conditions.

The Remedy
......................... has announced a recall campaign to all owners of a specified range of potentially affected machines, ...................

Thats what the dealership told me as well " Not a chance of it happening over here mate " closely followed by " What the #### " !!!! Yep cracked on both forks.

Re: Honda Recall

A phone call? Don't they send out a written notice?
I got the same thing... A phone call, 15 minute ride, 45 minutes on the lift. Dealer determined I wasn't affected, and sent me on my way. Possible that it was only on a certain batch off the assembly line?

Re: Honda Recall

Hi

Just what are they looking at?

Can I look myself and take it to a dealer later for verification? We have had no notices from from Honda SA

Is this just in the US or world-wide?

Re: Honda Recall

I'm not sure if the tank problem is something you can do yourself. I just had mine done last week and the shop had just got a special tool to do the job. Of course for all I know that special tool could have been a #2 philips screwdriver. Either way it is a recall so it should be no charge (mine was).

My dealership didn't even notify me until I took my bike in to have something else taken care of and they did the "Oh, by the way, your bike has a recall on it."

I just took my 07 in on Saturday. They told me that the recall only affects certain VINs. You dealer can tell you if the recall affects your bike if you provide them with your VIN. The problem is that the vent tube on the tank is too long and can stress the weld and crack. My bike was in and out in 2 1/2 hours. New tank when I left.
