– 2010 through 2016 Honda Shadow VT750 Model Lineup Recall –
December 24th, 2015
Honda is launching a Safety Recall of 2010 – 2016 model year * VT750C / CA / CS (Aero), VT750C2 / C2F / C2S (Spirit), and VT750C2B (Phantom) motorcycles for a potentially defective bank angle sensor.
Honda has determined that engine vibration may cause the bank angle sensor’s wiring to rub on a wire harness connector. Continuous vibration between the bank angle sensor wiring and the wire harness connector may create an open in the bank angle sensor electrical circuit. If an open in the bank angle sensor electrical circuit develops, the engine may stall while riding.
Some models within the affected VIN range were previously recalled to replace the bank angle sensor. This is a new recall for a different type of failure.
