2001 Honda GL1800 Motorcycles Recalled

Detroit, MI (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has published a recall affecting certain 2001 Honda GL1800 motorcycles manufactured between October 2000 and February 2001.

On certain motorcycles equipped with a newly designed engine stop switch, the engine stop switch is sensitive to accidental contact or strong jolting, such as hitting a pothole or riding over railroad tracks, which could cause the engine to cut out momentarily or even shut off. Sudden loss of engine power could lead to a crash.

6,662 motorcycles are affected by this recall.

Dealers will install a contact plate, e-clip, and two contact plate springs.

The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began May 18, 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Honda at 1-310-532-9811.

[NHTSA Recall No. 01V162]
