Owners of a 2017 Honda CBR1000RR, or its up-spec sibling the 2017 Honda CBR1000RR SP, should take note, as American Honda is recalling 2,443 units of the superbike for issues with their fuel tank design.
This is because on affected units there may be a gap between the fuel tank cap seal and the fuel filler neck, which could allow water to enter the fuel tank.
To remedy the issue, Honda will notify affected owners, and Honda dealers will replace the fuel tank cap. If water has gotten into the fuel tank, the affected components will be replaced as well. Naturally, these repairs will be performed free of charge.
This recall is expected to begin on December 4, 2017. Concerned CBR1000RR owners may contact 1-866-784-1870, and reference Honda’s number for this recall: KH7. As always, the NHTSA is also available at 1-888-327-4236 and safercar.gov
