Honda Motorcycles Australia has recalled 183 of their learner motorcycles over an issue which could cause locking of the rear wheel.

The recall notice, issued through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) affects the 2019 CBF300N, 2018 CBR300R (pictured above) and 2017 CRF250L.

Vehicle identification numbers of affected bikes are listed at the end of this article.

“The groove on the main shaft was incorrectly manufactured and is oversized, possibly resulting in the circlip loosening and causing gear damage,” the ACCC notice says.

If the gear is damaged, the motorcycle may stall or lock by the rear wheel, increasing the risk of an accident and serious injuries to road users.”

Owners have been advised to contact their nearest Honda Motorcycle Dealer and arrange for an inspection and repair at no charge.

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.
