Motorcycle Recall - Honda

NHTSA Campaign ID:  07V359000
Component:  Electrical System: Wiring
Manufacturer:  American Honda Motor CO.
Recall Date: 08/14/2007
Potential Number of Units Affected: Not Specified
Defect Summary:
On certain motorcycles, the front fairing sub-harness (section of the wiring harness) transfers the electrical grounding load of the headlights, front turn signals, instrument panel, and various relays to the main wiring harness via an 18-pin connector. Under certain conditions, the ground wire terminals inside the connector can overheat, resulting in melting of the connector and a loss of power to various circuits.
Consequence Summary:
As a result, a loss of critical lighting or engine power could occur without warning, which could cause a crash.
Corrective Summary:
Dealers will install a re-designed sub-harness. If damage is found, the main wiring harness will also be replaced free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided an owner notification schedule for this campaign. Owners may contact Honda at 1-866-784-1870.
