    Honda recalls Africa Twin Adventure Sports motorcycles

    The fuel filter may clog and cause an engine stall

    American Honda Motor Co. is recalling 2,690 model year 2018-2019 Africa Twin Adventure Sports (CRF1000L), and model year 2020 Africa Twin Adventure Sports (CRF1100L) motorcycles. Contaminants inside the fuel tank may cause the fuel filter to clog, possibly resulting in an engine stall.

    An engine stall can increase the risk of a crash or injury.

    What to do

    Honda will notify owners, and dealers will drain and clean the fuel tank, and replace the fuel filter assembly free of charge.

    The recall is expected to begin February 15, 2021.

    Owners may contact Honda customer service at (866) 784-1870. Honda's number for this recall is KL4.

    Honda recalls model year 2013-2015 Accords

    The drive shaft may corrode and fail

    American Honda Motor Co. is recalling 220,000 model year 2013-2015 Accords equipped with a 4-cylinder engine and a continuously-variable transmission that were originally sold, or ever registered, in Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

    The drive shafts were assembled with a lubricant that may have degraded the drive shafts' protective coating, making it more susceptible to damage from road salt or other contaminants, and potentially cause it to break.

    A broken drive shaft may cause a sudden loss of drive power. The vehicle could also roll away if the parking brake has not been applied before the vehicle has been exited. Either condition can increase the risk of a crash or injury.

    What to do

    Honda will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the drive shafts, replacing both the left and right drive shafts -- if necessary -- free of charge.

    The recall is expected to begin February 1, 2021.

    Owners may contact Honda customer service at (888) 234-2138.
