Recall News: 2015-2015 Honda CB500 & CBR500 Models Recalled For Fuel System Defect
The following report is filed with the NHTSA:
Report Receipt Date: July 29, 2015
NHTSA Campaign Number: 15V475000
Component(s): Fuel System, Gasoline
Potential Number of Units Affected: 14,575
Manufacturer: Honda (American Honda Motor Co.)
THE RECALL: Honda (American Honda Motor Co.) is recalling certain model year 2013-2015 Honda CBR500 motorcycles manufactured January 24, 2013, to May 14, 2015, and 2013-2015 CB500 motorcycles manufactured January 31, 2013, to May 16, 2015. The affected motorcycles may experience the fuel level sensor float arm becoming deformed due to exposure to environmental and roadway conditions. This deformation can cause the float arm to separate from the fuel level sensor body.
WHAT COULD HAPPEN: If the float arm separates from the sensor body, it can give the fuel meter inaccurate information, or in some cases the float may contact the positive and negative terminals causing an electrical short. Either condition may cause the vehicle to stall, increasing the risk of a crash.
THE FIX: Honda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel level sensor assembly, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Honda customer service at 1-310-783-2000. Honda's number for this recall is JT1.
MORE RECALL INFORMATION: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to safercar.gov.
