New Recall Pending for 2015-2016 CBR300R & CB300F

Apparently there is a new recall pending, which involves the connecting rod bearing on 2015-2016 CBR300R's & CB300F's...

From the American Honda Powersports website: Recall Information - Honda Powersports ...

NHTSA RECALL NUMBER: AWAITING#
CAMPAIGN DESCRIPTION: CB/CBR300 ROD BEARING RECALL
MFR CAMPAIGN ID: KB9
RECALL DATE:
RECALL STATUS: VIN/HIN Required




And from this website: Honda CBR300R & CB300F Stop Sale / Recall - Potentially Defective Crankshaft | Honda-Pro Kevin ...

– 2015 – 2016 CBR300R & 2015 – 2016 CB300F Motorcycle Recall –

Honda just announced a STOP SALE NOTICE of model year 2015 through 2016 CBR300R and CB300F motorcycles to repair a potentially defective crankshaft on affected motorcycles.

What could happen if your crankshaft fails? If the connecting rod bearing retainer breaks, the engine may stall and/or not restart. An engine that stalls while riding increases the risk of a crash.

Effective immediately, dealers can not sell any 2015 through 2016 CBR300R and CB300F motorcycles until it has been repaired according to this Service Bulletin.

Affected Units:

2015 CBR300R – All
2016 CBR300R – All
2015 CB300F – All
2016 CB300F – All
American Honda will be mailing notification letters to owners of affected CBR300R & CB300F motorcycles by late August, 2016.





Also found on this Australian website: Honda CB300F And CBR300R Recalled For Possible Engine Issue - Behind the Wheel...

The very popular Honda CB300F and CBR300R are being recalled due to a potential problem that could lead to a major engine failure.

Honda states that “due to incorrect Quality Control during the manufacturing process, the engine crankshaft bearings may fail and cause the engine to stop suddenly and be unable to be restarted” in the recall notice issued through the ACCC recall website.

The recall notice also suggests that if engine stops suddenly while riding it could result in a crash.

Affected VIN numbers are:

CB300F: MLHNC52U3F5100001 to MLHNC52U9G5200248
CBR300R: MLHNC51U5F5100003 to MLHNC51U7G5200699
The Honda CB300F and CBR300R share the same single cylinder 300cc engine.

Owners are being asked to take their motorcycle to their nearest Honda Dealer and arrange to have the motorcycle repaired as soon as possible.

Sounds like you'll have to settle with riding that Ducati of yours for awhile.

Ughhhhh... I don't want them opening my motor up. I've never had stall issues but I do thrash my bike pretty hard.

Idk if anyone remembers Berk Engin on the forums here, he blew his motor a while back I wonder if this is related.

Honda Issues "Stop Sell" on All 300's

Went to the dealer yesterday for my 600 mile service. Dealer tells me that Honda has had them remove all 300's from sales floor pending an engine "main shaft" recall/replacement. Dealer also said that Honda will take such action when a problem has been identified and when injury(s) or worse has occurred. They are hoping to have the parts in a week or so.

I assume what they told is valid and true. Just passing it along for what it's worth.

Ride safe!

Well that explains the excessive metal shavings while changing the oil.

From the looks of it, those affected VIN numbers listed on the Australian website cover all of the 2015 CB300F's & CBR300R's, and a small number of early production 2016 models (248 CB300F's and 699 CBR300R's) imported to Australia.

For those who may not be aware of how Honda differentiates between model years in the VIN number, the tenth character of the VIN is a model year letter code... F is used for the 2015 model year, and G is used for the 2016 model year.


CB300F: MLHNC52U3F5100001 to MLHNC52U9G5200248

CBR300R: MLHNC51U5F5100003 to MLHNC51U7G5200699
