Issue

On certain motorcycles, the fuel tank breather hose may have been kinked during assembly. This could result in fuel flow through the breather hose to be obstructed and the fuel tank internal pressure could become abnormally high or low, causing deformation of the fuel tank, or in some cases could lead to a crack in the fuel tank. If the fuel tank develops a crack, fuel leakage can occur, which in the presence of an ignition source, could result in a fire. Correction: Dealers will inspect and replace the fuel tank breather hose. If the inspection shows that there was obstructed flow through the breather hose caused by a kink in the hose, the fuel tank will also be replaced.
