IMPORTANT SAFETY RECALL NOTICE - FORZA - RESIN BRACKET
October 22, 2014

HONDA RECALL NOTIFICATION

YEAR: 2014 MAKE: HONDA MODEL: NSS300, NSS300A (FORZA)

NHTSA RECALL NUMBER: AWAITING NO. RECALL

DATE: OCTOBER 22, 2014

MANUFACTURER RECALL NUMBER: JL1


SUMMARY:
AMERICAN HONDA MOTOR CO., INC. (HONDA) IS RECALLING 2014 MODEL YEAR NSS300 AND NSS300A (FORZA). A RESIN BRACKET INSIDE THE FUEL PUMP MAY SWELL AND INTERFERE WITH THE IMPELLER WHICH MAY CAUSE THE FUEL PUMP TO STOP WORKING PROPERLY.

SAFETY RISK:
WHILE PARKED, THIS CAN PREVENT THE ENGINE FROM STARTING.

WHILE RIDING, PARTICLES MAY BECOME STUCK BETWEEN THE BRACKET AND THE IMPELLER CAUSING THE ENGINE TO STALL AND POSSIBLY NOT-RESTART. A STALLING ENGINE WILL INCREASE THE RISK OF A CRASH.

REMEDY:
HONDA WILL NOTIFY THE OWNERS OF ALL AFFECTED VEHICLES BY MAIL AND DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE ORIGINAL FUEL PUMP WITH AN UPDATED DESIGN, FREE OF CHARGE. BECAUSE THE NEW VEHICLE WARRANTY ON ALL AFFECTED VEHICLES WOULD HAVE PROVIDED A FREE REPAIR FOR THE PROBLEM ADDRESSED BY THIS RECALL, WITHOUT ANY PAYMENT BY THE OWNER, REIMBURSEMENT FOR PRE-NOTIFICATION REPAIRS WILL NOT BE OFFERED. NOTIFICATION TO CUSTOMERS ABOUT THIS RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN MID-DECEMBER, 2014. OWNERS MAY CONTACT MOTORCYCLE CUSTOMER SUPPORT AT 1-866-784-1870. HONDA’S CAMPAIGN NUMBER FOR THIS RECALL IS JL1.

Interesting recall but does it apply to the Forza as sold inThailand?

By: news (offline)  Sunday, 02 November 2014 @ 12:29 PM ICT  

The Honda Forza 300 sold in the US and in Europe are according to some insiders mostly build, if not all, build by Honda Thailand.

But the problem with the fuel pump I would call an annoying recall not a safety recall, I would need to fantasies a lot to see any safety concern with a failing fuel pump.

To see if your Honda Forza 300 needs the fuel-pump replace go to warranty.aphonda.co.th/ enter your VIN and see if you're on the list... Normally your Honda dealer will inform you... but if you have changed your telephone number or moved recently it would be more difficult to contact you....

Only an annoying call ? Honda USA itself has called it "safety recall"...

Some users of italian forumhttp://hondaforza.forumcommunity.net/ driving in highway had the Forza stopped in a bit.. this was really dangerous for their safety. Others had the issue driving during night in lonely roads..

Notice that ALL NS300 in italian market are built in Thailand.
