This Recall is in respect of the Fuel Level Gauge (Float Arm) which may lead to possible reading error in the fuel gauge meter, abnormal noise inside the tank or inability to start the engine. The reason as we have ascertained is due to the Fuel Level Gauge (Float Arm) holder which expands with the ambient temperature during hot weather and this reduces the holding point strength of the float arm. During rapid acceleration and deceleration of the motorcycle, the slushing movement of petrol in the tank may cause the float arm to detach from its holder. Boon Siew Honda Sdn. Bhd. ensures that every aforementioned Honda Model undergoing this campaign will be thoroughly checked and the affected part will be replaced in order to guarantee the safety of the rider and the optimum performance of the motorcycle.
