Product title
Motorcycles - Fuel tank air vent pipe
Product description
The recall concerns certain 2006 and 2007 model year CBR1000RR units. Various VIN.
Risk
The product poses a risk of fire because the air vent pipe in the fuel tank resonates at a specific engine rotation speed and in some cases this may cause the air vent pipe to crack in the brazed portion of the air vent pipe in the bottom of the fuel tank. Construction of the fuel tank makes two different brazing methods for the air vent pipe, MIG brazing and flame brazing. Only MIG brazed fuel tanks encounter high stress generated at the brazed area of the air vent pipe due to the shape of the brazing and cracking may occur due to fatigue, resulting in fuel leakage.
