– 2017 CBR1000RR Sport Bike / Motorcycle Recall – Stop Sale –
The CBR1000RR was completely revamped from top to bottom for 2017 and now Honda has released a Recall / Stop Sale on the bike. What is a stop sale? Dealers are required to not sell said motorcycle when a ‘stop sale’ is announced. So if you were to walk into a dealer today and say “I want to buy a 2017 CBR1000RR” the dealer would have to refuse the sale.
Safety Consequence: If the fuel cap seal swells, a gap may occur between the fuel tank cap seal and the fuel filler neck. The gap may allow water to enter the fuel tank from the outside. If water enters the fuel tank, it may cause engine stalling. An engine stall could result in the loss of power and may increase the risk of a crash.
