Honda is recalling more than 17,000 model year 2014-2015 Grom 125, NSS300, and NSS300A motorcycles. The resin bracket inside the fuel pump of the affected motorcycles may swell and cause the pump impeller to seize.

If the fuel pump seizes, the motorcycle will stall, increasing the risk of a crash.

Honda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel pump assembly with one that uses a metal bracket internally, free of charge.

The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

This recall supersedes recall 14V-672. Some, but not all, motorcycles that were remedied under that campaign are affected by this recall as well, and need to have the fuel pump replaced again.

For further information regarding this recall, consumers may contact Honda customer service at (888) 234-2138. Honda's numbers for this recall are KC3 and KC4.
