Honda recall over chain issue on Aussie dirt bikes

Check the VINs of affected bikes

The last thing you want when you are riding a bush trail is for the chain to come off the rear sprocket.

That is why Honda Australia has issued an official recall for their current model CRF450R dirt bike range.

The notice, issued through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, blames the issue on a manufacturing fault.

It says the bike’s chain joining link may dislodge which can “cause the chain to detach from the rear sprocket”.

“If the drive chain detaches, the motorcycle may experience loss in vehicle control,” the notice says.

“This can increase the risk of an accident, causing serious injury or death to the rider and bystanders.”

Owners are asked to contact their nearest Honda motorcycle dealer and arrange for their motorcycle to be inspected and repaired free “at their earliest opportunity”.

VINs or Vehicle Identification Numbers of the 550 affected dirt bikes are included at the end of this article.

It is Honda’s second recall notice this year after the CRF1000 and CRF1100 Africa Twin adventure sports bikes were recalled in February for a fuel tank fault.

YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS ON RECALLS

Even though manufacturers and importers usually contact owners when a recall is issued, the bike may have been sold privately to a rider unknown to the company.

Therefore, Motorbike Writer publishes all motorcycle and scooter recalls as a service to all riders.

If you believe there is an endemic problem with your bike that should be recalled, contact the ACCC on 1300 302 502.
