Honda Recalls CBR929RR For Clutch Replacement

American Honda has recalled all 2000 and 2001 CBR929RR models for a potential problem with the clutch. Honda is sending letters to CBR929RR owners informing them of the problem and instructing them to take their bike to a Honda dealer for repairs.<BR><BR>Slipping the clutch at high rpm to make a racing start can cause a clutch plate chatter that in turn can cause the clutch outer basket to fail with several large sections of the outer basket cracking and breaking off. The chatter can also cause the clutch actuation shaft to crack and/or break at its machined end.<BR><BR>Under the recall, dealers will replace the clutch outer basket, the bottom fiber clutch plate, the damper spring and damper spring seat that fit between the bottom fiber clutch plate and the clutch basket, and the clutch actuation lever/shaft assembly, free of charge. <BR><BR>Affected units include all 2000 CBR929RRs and 2001-model CBR929RR/REs with the following serial numbers:<BR><BR>JH2SC440*1M100001 to JH2SC440*1M103117<BR>JH2SC441*1M100001 to JH2SC441*1M100434<BR>JH2SC443*1M100001 to JH2SC443*1M101150<BR>JH2SC444*1M100001 to JH2SC444*1M100126.<BR><BR><BR>
