Recall Alert: 2017 Honda CBR1000RR & CBR1000RR SP!
If You Invested In A 2017 Honda CBR1000RR Or CBR1000RR SP, It’s Recall Time!
Honda are recalling 2,443 units thanks to a generally bad fuel tank design, so if you’re the proud owner of a 2017 Honda CBR1000RR or CBR1000RR SP then listen up, because this probably affects you.
2017 Honda CBR1000RR & CBR1000RR SP Recall!
Honda are set to round up their year on a low note after fears that their fuel tank design might be a little sub-par turned out to be true. It was reported a month or so ago that the fuel tank cap seal and fuel filler neck for the 2017 Honda CBR1000RR and CBR1000RR SP models were faulty but now Honda have made it official. 2,443 units are set to be recalled, and they’re being recalled because the cap problem could be dangerous. It might not sound like much on paper, but if you’ve got a faulty filler cap and seal, water could enter the fuel tank and eventually make its way into the engine. Water isn’t a particularly potent fuel alternative, so having water in the engine isn’t exactly ideal and could lead to a number of problems that could result in a mechanical failure which could cause an injury or worse.
To be on the safe side, Honda are recalling all affected units. Honda will be notifying all owners directly and any owners of the 2017 Honda CBR1000RR and 2017 Honda CBR1000RR will be treated with a replacement fuel tank cap at their local Honda dealership. If water has made it into in the tank, Honda will also replace any other water-affected parts too, all free of charge, of course.
The recall should begin on December 4, 2017. Naturally, if you’re affected and would like to know more, you can contact Honda America by calling 1-866-784-1870 and quoting this recall reference number: KH7.
