Motorcycle Recall - Honda

NHTSA Campaign ID:  10V369000
Component:  Equipment: Other: Labels
Manufacturer:  American Honda Motor Co.
Recall Date: 08/09/2010
Potential Number of Units Affected: 3184
Defect Summary:
Certain model year 2010 Honda VT1300CR, VT1300CRA, and VT1300CT motorcycles manufactured from December 17, 2009 through May 24, 2010, fail to conform to the certification requirements of Part 567. The gross axle weight rating (GAWR) is incorrect.
Consequence Summary:
An owner may be lead to believe from the incorrect information the motorcycle can carry more weight than it is certified to carry, resulting in an overloaded condition which can increase the risk of a crash.
Corrective Summary:
The owners of all affected motorcycles will be mailed a letter containing a durable correction sticker and installation instructions. If the owner prefers that the dealer apply the sticker, they will be instructed to take their motorcycle to a Honda dealer who will apply the corrected label free of charge. The campaign is expected to begin on or about August 20, 2010. Owners may contact Honda at 1-310-783-2000.
