RECALL NEWS: Honda Recalls 1,825 VFR1200F Sportbikes For Defective U-Joint
2010, 2012, 2013 Honda VFR1200F motorcycles are on the recall list for faulty U-joints that might break.
The following report is filed with the NHTSA:
Report Receipt Date: December 7, 2015 NHTSA Campaign Number: 15V821000
Component(s): Powertrain, driveshaft
Potential Number of Units Affected: 1,825
Manufacturer: Honda (American Honda Motor Co.)
THE RECALL: Honda (American Honda Motor Co.) is recalling certain model year 2010, 2012 and 2013 VFR1200F and VFR1200FD motorcycles. Manufacturing or assembly errors may result in the affected motorcycles having driveshaft universal joint bearings that may prematurely wear which can cause the universal joint to separate or break.
WHAT COULD HAPPEN: If the universal joint separates, the motorcycle would stall. If the universal joint breaks, it may interfere with the swing arm and lock the rear wheel. Either condition could increase the risk of a crash.
THE FIX: Honda will be notify owners, and dealers will replace the driveshaft, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in December 2015, however parts may not be available until mid-2016. Owners may contact Honda customer service at 1-800-999-1009. Honda's number for this recall is JW2.
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.
