PostSubject: Rigid Gas Tank Needs Replacement   Thu 18 Jun 2009, 07:21

Hi all. Arrow I recently had to have my gas tank replaced. It is supposed to be flexible, and instead was rigid. I understand from the dealership that this is quite serious, and could result in a gas explosion if you go down. cherry What I noticed was gas leakage when the bike went down once (I dropped it Embarassed). Anyway, this was a recall and there was no charge for the replacement.

I wanted to let everyone know, just in case.

I found this listing for 2003 Silver Wings:
Recall ID #37078

Recall ID #37078 - FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE:STORAGE:TANK ASSEMBLY
Recall ID #37078 - FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE:STORAGE:TANK ASSEMBLY

Recall Date
APR 12, 2004

Motorcycle Affected
2003 HONDA SILVER WING

Summary
ON CERTAIN SCOOTERS, SOME FUEL TANKS WERE IMPROPERLY MANUFACTURED AND DO NOT MEET MATERIAL STRENGTH SPECIFICATIONS.

Consequence
ENGINE VIBRATION OR RIDING ON BUMPY ROADS COULD CAUSE THESE TANKS TO CRACK AND LEAK. FUEL LEAKAGE, IN THE PRESENCE OF AN IGNITION SOURCE, CAN RESULT IN A FIRE.

Remedy
DEALERS WILL PERFORM AN INSPECTION PROCEDURE THAT IDENTIFIES DEFECTIVE FUEL TANKS. IF THE FUEL TANK FAILS THE INSPECTION, THE DEALER WILL REPLACE IT WITH AN UPDATED FUEL TANK. OWNER NOTIFICATION BEGAN DURING APRIL 16, 2004. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT HONDA AT 1-866-784-1870.

Potential Motorcycles Affected
2497

Notes
HONDA (AMERICAN HONDA MOTOR CO.) P26
