What are the defects?

Over time, the plastic fuel tanks on all ARX1200 personal water crafts can crack and leak fuel after having been exposed to chemicals commonly found in many aerosol sprays used to clean the engine and prevent oxidation of metal parts. Even a small amount of chemical exposure can lead to cracking over time.

What are the hazards?

Fuel leaks into the hull pose a risk of fire or explosion, which can lead to serious injury or death.

What should consumers do?

Honda has developed an improved fuel tank and mounting system that is now available to conduct the necessary recall repairs. Please contact your Honda dealer to schedule an appointment to have the recall repair completed free of charge. It is recommend that you plan to leave your ARX1200 with the dealer for at least three days to allow the dealer flexibility in scheduling.
