Models involved: GS500/F (’04-’07), GZ250 (’02-’07)
Problem: It appears that certain models fail to comply with the CMVSS 108 standard. What that means is that the headlight’s reflected light output isn’t up to snuff.
Consequence: You might not see so well at night or even be seen as well by others.
Fix: If you have one of these bikes, go to your local dealer where you’ll be given a big bag of carrots. No you won’t, you’ll have your reflux reflector replaced (but it’s not as painful as it sounds).
Recall Number: 2007361
Its not the head light, its the rear reflex reflector.
” The reflex reflector has a reflected light output at some measurement angles that is less than the minimum output required by the standard.”
