Default Honda recalls CBR 150R & CBR 250R for defective starter relay

Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India said it was recalling all CBR 150R and CBR 250R brand of premium motorcycles manufactured between July 2014 to June 2015 and sold in India.

The recall is to examine and if necessary, replace, the bikes’ starter relay switch.

This is being done as part of a global effort, and the parts were manufactured outside India, Honda said.

“The recall process will start in mid of August 2015, as a precautionary measure to check and replace if it belongs to the defective lot.”

“It is suspected, sealant may have been applied incorrectly during assembly of the starter relay switch (which is a globally sourced part). This can increase resistance across main fuse, potentially interrupting the motorcycle’s battery voltage to the electrical system.”

The part, if defective, could result in disruption of electric supply to the engine and cause a malfunction.

“An interruption of the electrical system battery voltage could cause the engine to A) not start or B) stall while riding, & in extreme case the increased resistance at the main fuse could cause the starter relay to catch on fire, however, no such incident has been reported in any HMSI manufactured vehicle in India.”

The switch will be replaced free of cost in the identified units whether or not the bike is in warranty across all India Honda Network, the company said.

“With this move, Honda globally reinforces its commitment to providing highest quality products and customer satisfaction. Honda 2 Wheeler plans to send out proactive communication to the identified customers and shall undertake work ensuring no inconvenience.”


This also looks to be a part of the global recall of many more models. Details here
