Oil may leak from a melted oil cooler pipe

American Honda Motor Co. is recalling 331 model year 2021 CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP motorcycles.

Under certain driving conditions, the exhaust pipe may overheat, which could melt the oil cooler pipe and cause it to rupture.

A ruptured oil cooler pipe can leak oil onto the exhaust pipe or rear tires, increasing the risk of a fire, crash, or injury.

What to do

Owners are advised not to ride their motorcycle above 5,000 RPM in 1st gear until the recall repair is complete.

Dealers will replace the oil cooler pipe and install a heat guard between the exhaust pipe and oil cooler pipe free of charge.

Letters notifying owners of the safety risk are expected to be mailed on March 1, 2022. A second letter will be sent once the remedy is available.

Owners may contact Honda customer service at (866) 784-1870. Honda's number for this recall is KN3.
