NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number : 05V010000

Defect Summary:

Certain motorcycles equipped with combined-brake systems have a proportioning control valve (PCV) that mechanically proportions brake force when the rear brake is applied. A seal in some PCVs is improperly shaped, and brake fluid leakage may occur. Models affected are 2002-2003 CBR1100XX, 2003-2004 ST1300 and ST1300A, 2002-2004 VFR800, and 2003-2004 VFR800A.

Affected 2002 range:
VFR VINs: JH2RC461*2M401716-402149
VFR-A (ABS) VINs: JH2RC464*2M400536

Affected 2003 range
VFR VINs: JH2RC461*3M500001-501519,
VFR-A (ABS) VINs: JH2RC464*3M500001-500496

Affected 2004 range:
VFR VINs: JH2RC461*4M600001-601209
VFR-A (ABS) VINs: JH2RC464*4M600001-600310

Consequence Summary:

If the motorcycle continues to be used after a leak occurs, the rear brake would eventually become inoperative. A loss of rear brake force could increase the risk of a crash.

Corrective Summary:

Dealers will inspect the rear brake for leakage. If leakage is confirmed, the dealer will replace the PCV. The recall is expected to begin on February 3, 2005. Owners should contact Honda at 866-784-1870.

Damn, thanks for looking out for your fellow VFR riders, Travis! I'll have to check the VFR VIN when I get home. Haven't noticed any leakage, but good thing to know.
