According to the latest information from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Honda is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Grom 125 motorcycles manufactured June 12, 2013, to September 8, 2015, and 2014-2015 NSS300 & NSS300A motorcycles manufactured June 18, 2013 to March 19, 2015.

The reason for the recall is the resin bracket inside the fuel pump of the affected motorcycles may swell and cause the pump impeller to seize, which will cause the engine to stall with the increased potential for a crash.

Honda recall information states that nine known failures have occurred, all in Japan and that no failures have been reported so far in North America. According to Honda’s recall report, 17,643 vehicles are included in the recall.

The announcement indicates Honda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel pump assembly with one that uses a metal bracket internally, free of charge. Honda has not yet provided a notification schedule but owners may contact Honda customer service at 1-888-234-2138. Honda’s numbers for this recall are KC3 and KC4.

This recall supersedes a previous recall numbered 14V-672. Some, but not all, motorcycles that were remedied under that campaign are affected by this recall as well and need to have the fuel pump replaced again.

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.
