American Honda has issued a recall notice for the 2017 CBR1000RR. A total of 2,443 units are affected which also include the higher-spec model, the 2017 CBR1000RR SP. The decision has been made taking note of a faulty fuel tank design.
According to the reports, 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 and nobody would like that. So, Honda will notify customers of the affected models and they’ll be advised to bring their bike to a Honda dealer which will take care of the issue free of cost. And to do that it will be replacing the fuel tank cap and, God forbid, if any traces of water are found inside then a thorough check-up of affected components will be done and they will be replaced if necessary.
The entire exercise will take some time to complete so please be patient. Honda will begin this recall from Dec 4, 2017.
