Honda Issues Recall of 2002-2005 VFR800 Motorcycles for Electrical Problem

Honda has issued a recall of certain 2002-2005 VFR800 models.

On certain motorcycles, the front fairing sub-harness (section of the wiring harness) transfers the electrical grounding load of the headlights, front turn signals, instrument panel, and various relays to the main wiring harness via an 18-pin connector. Under certain conditions, the ground wire terminals inside the connector can overheat, resulting in melting of the connector and a loss of power to various circuits. As a result, a loss of critical lighting or engine power could occur without warning, which could cause a crash.

An unspecified number of units are affected.
