A third motorcycle offered with Ohlins suspension has been recalled – the Honda CBR1000S. The CBR1000S is now recalled along with the Yamaha YZF-R1M, Triumph Daytona 675 R and Triumph Speed Triple R.

Honda has recalled 504 of its 2014-2015 CBR1000S models built from Dec. 9, 2013, through March 28, 201. Honda says the  Ohlins rear shock absorber may have been improperly manufactured.

Honda says the nut on the damper rod of the Ohlins unit may loosen, resulting in a loss of damping and the possible disassembling of the shock. If the damper rod nut loosens, shock absorber performance would be affected, possibly causing loss of control and increasing the risk of a crash, Honda reports.

Honda says it will notify owners, and dealers will remove the shock assembly and send it to the supplier’s service center for repair. Once repaired, the supplier’s service center will ship the shock assembly back to the dealer and the dealership will reinstall the shock on the motorcycle. This work will be performed free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Honda customer service at 1-866-784-1870. Honda’s number for this recall is JQ3.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
