Honda is recalling Gold Wing and CBR600RR models from 2018 to 2020 and CBR1000RR models from 2018 to 2019 because of a problem with their fuel pump assemblies. The recall covers up to 17,374 motorcycles, with 1% estimated to have a defect.

Issue Details

The core of the problem lies in the fuel pump impellers, which may have been improperly molded during manufacturing, resulting in them having a lower density. According to the recall documentation, these impellers may experience some surface cracking when exposed to production solvent drying for extended periods of time. This defect could cause the impellers to deform over time, potentially leading to a failure in the fuel pump. Such a malfunction could result in the engine stalling while the motorcycle is in motion, posing an increased risk of an accident.

Warning signs include intermittent loss of power, difficulty starting, or stalling of the motorcycle.

Recall and Remedy

To address this issue, Honda dealers are set to inspect and, if necessary, replace the fuel pump module at no cost to the motorcycle owners. The replacement parts have higher density impellers and more clearance between the impeller and fuel pump body. The recall campaign, identified by numbers KP8, KP9, KQ0, and KQ1, aims to rectify the defect and prevent any possible incidents. Honda says notification letters to owners are scheduled to be dispatched starting April 8, 2024.

Owners of the affected models are encouraged to reach out to Honda customer service at 1-866-784-1870 for further information and assistance. Additionally, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) offers resources through its Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or online at, for those seeking more details on this recall.
