2006-2007 1000RR owners!

might be repost or old news....but Honda just sent me a letter about a recall on the fuel tank. I forgot exactly what it said but somethin along the lines of a possible slow leak in the gasket of the fuel pump or somethin like that.

call your dealership and find out what it's about and schedule an appointment.

Yeah, it's an issue with a welded connection at the bottom of the tank for your overfill hose. They use a tool and see if yours protrudes out a particular amount to determine if it's replaced or not.

It's a simple fix if a new tank is needed, as long as, they have it in stock at the time. The check itself to see if your tank fits the needs takes maybe 10 min with the whole swap maybe 30-45min.

To those interested. You do not have to take the bike to the dealer to have the service. You can take the tank in if you wish. I chose to take it in, and swap it out.
Just my personal preference.

I didnt think you were allowed to do that, I figured they have to verify the VIN on the bike to make sure its a recalled tank

The recalled tanks are verified by a mechanical test, not a set of vin's.

Feel free to raise @ the dealer. Remember, YOU are the customer.

Vin # is required to do most recall because sometimes you have a batch that don't have this issue.
