American Honda has recalled 14,575 of its 2013-2015 CBR500R and CB500F motorcycles due to fueling-system issues.

Honda says on the recalled motorcycles – 2013-2015 Honda CBR500Rs manufactured January 24, 2013, to May 14, 2015, and 2013-2015 CB500Fs manufactured January 31, 2013, to May 16, 2015 – the fuel level sensor float arm may deform due to exposure to environmental and roadway conditions. This deformation can cause the float arm to separate from the fuel level sensor body.

If the float arm separates from the sensor body, it can give the fuel meter inaccurate information, or in some cases the float may contact the positive and negative terminals causing an electrical short. Either condition may cause the vehicle to stall, increasing the risk of a crash, Honda reports.
