American Honda Motor Co. is recalling 262 model year 2019-2020 CB500X and CBR500R ABS motorcycles.

Excessive grease in the ABS modulator may collect debris, which can get stuck in the check valve and cause a brake fluid leak.

A brake fluid leak can reduce braking performance and increase the risk of a crash.

What to do

Dealers will inspect the lot number on the ABS modulator and replace it -- as necessary -- free of charge.

Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on October 29, 2021.

Owners may contact Honda Powersports customer service at (866) 784-1870. Honda's number for this recall is KM6.
