Honda recalls STX1300 Pan

Published: 07 October 2002

Honda is recalling all its STX1300 Pan Europeans worldwide to correct a manufacturing faults in the engine sump pan.

For full details on the recall of the STX1300, don’t miss the October 16 issue of MCN.

All 800 UK owners of official and parallel bikes should receive a letter in the next two weeks advising them to contact their dealer.

The problem centres around a fault which can lead to the sump pan being holed if the bike is ground out, on a kerb for example.

While the sump pan is replaced dealers will also tackle other potential sources of complaint:

*Some owners had reported a tendency to weave at high speed, a fault traced to incorrectly tightened engine hanger bolts. Dealers will check the torque settings of these bolts on each machine.

*Others had complained of an uncomfortably hot ride, so more heat-deflecting material will be added.

*Bikes will also be fitted with a redesigned seat, after owners reported staples in the original could scratch panel paint.
