Honda Motor Co—VFR1200F & VFR1200X Motorcycles
What are the defects?
Due to an incorrect assembly procedure at the factory, the driveshaft bearings may overheat and deteriorate, causing them to fail.
What are the hazards?
If left unrepaired, the bearing surfaces may "break up" and may cause the shaft to lock up whilst riding. This may pose an accident hazard to the rider and/or other road users.
What should consumers do?
Owners should contact their nearest Honda Dealer and arrange to have their machine inspected and repaired, as necessary.
