Motorcycle Recall - Honda

NHTSA Campaign ID:  07V128000
Component:  Engine and Engine Cooling
Manufacturer:  American Honda Motor Co.
Recall Date: 03/16/2007
Potential Number of Units Affected: 6784
Defect Summary:
On certain motorcycles, the crankcase breather separator may be defected. During the molding process, the breather passage may have been blocked by a thin layer of the injected plastic material. This blockage will create a build-up of pressure inside the crankcase and may cause the left side engine seal to be pushed out of position and an oil leak will occur.
Consequence Summary:
Oil leaking from the failed seal while riding can spray onto the rear tire or the road, increasing the risk of a crash.
Corrective Summary:
Dealers will replace the breather separator, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided an owner notification schedule. Owners may contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009.
