– Honda Africa Twin / CRF1000L Centerstand Accessory Problems = Recall –
I get a lot of traffic from people looking for information on Honda’s Africa Twin 1000, also known as the CRF1000L, so I wanted to post this latest recall up so you guys can pass the information along to anyone that currently has one installed on their bike and or has been thinking about buying one of the center stands for their own Africa Twin. * This recall does not involve the 2018 Africa Twin CRF1000L or 2018 Adventure Sports Africa Twin CRF1000L2. The details are rather limited at this time but here’s what information I do have to share…
Accessory Safety Recall: Honda is launching a safety recall on the Honda Genuine Accessory Centerstand for all 2016 – 2017 Africa Twin / CRF1000L (including DCT models) motorcycles for a potential defect that may allow the center stand to detach from the motorcycle. A detached centerstand increases the risk of a crash and can create a road hard to other people on the roads or may cause a motorcycle parked on the centerstand to fall over.
- Key Note: This is an accessory recall only. Africa Twin models that do not have the recalled centerstand installed are not affected.
- Effective Immediately: Dealers must not sell or install the affected accessory centerstand.
- Affected Part Number: # 08M70-MJP-G50 – Centerstand (2016-2017 CRF1000L / LD).
I will update this page with more information as it’s released…
