Motorcycle Recall - Honda Recall

By Walter F. Kern

NHTSA Campaign ID:  17V805000
Component:  Fuel System, Gasoline
Manufacturer:  Honda (American Honda Motor Co.)
Recall Date: 12/13/2017
Potential Number of Units Affected: 20
Defect Summary:
Honda (American Honda Motor Co.) is recalling certain 2017 Honda VT1300CX Fury motorcycles and 2010 and 2016 Honda VT1300CX Fury motorcycles that received a replacement fuel tank. The fuel tank may be missing welds around the mounting bracket.
Consequence Summary:
If the welds are missing, the mounting bracket can separate from the tank, allowing fuel to leak and increasing the risk of a fire in the presence of an ignition source.
Corrective Summary:
Honda will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the fuel tank welds and, as necessary, replace the fuel tank, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in December 2017. Owners may contact Honda customer service at 1-888-234-2138
