What are the defects?

The plastic fuel tank may become affected by certain cleaning solutions which, if used continually, may cause the plastic to deteriorate and crack, allowing fuel to leak into the hull.

What are the hazards?

There is a risk of fire if the fuel leak is left unrepaired.

What should consumers do?

Consumers should not use their PWC without first confirming that there is no smell of fuel or fuel residue in the hull. If they are unsure, they should take the PWC to a Honda dealer who will carry out the check for them. If the tank is cracked, it will be replaced with another fuel tank, until the final countermeasure tank becomes available. The final countermeasure tank will also be fitted free of charge.
