Honda recall

Recall #: 2019261
Models Involved: 2019 Honda CBR300R, Rebel 300
Number of Vehicles:
Problem: On certain motorcycles, a clip in the transmission may detach. This could cause the transmission to shift from neutral into gear during engine start-up, or cause the rear wheel to lockup while the motorcycle is being driven.
Correction: The company will notify owners by mail and instruct them to take their vehicle to a dealer to replace the transmission main shaft.


  1. This is a very serious defect which should cause a ‘stop riding’ order by Transport Canada. Mike Hailwood when interviewed long ago stated unequivocally that his greatest fear in racing was a transmission lockup skidding the rear wheel – he thought that would be beyond his ability to control the bike.
