IMPORTANT SAFETY RECALL NOTICE


Dear VT750C or VT750C2B Owner:


This notice is sent to you in accordance with the requirements of the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act.


What is the reason for this notice?
Honda has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in certain 2011 model year VT750C and 2010 and 2011 model year VT750C2B motorcycles. Engine vibration can cause the bank angle sensor to malfunction and theengine to unexpectedly stall. An engine stall increases the risk of a crash. In normal operation, the bank angle sensor only will turn the engine off when the motorcycle falls onto its side. However, should you experience an engine stall while in traffic due to bank angle sensor malfunction, you will need to cycle the ignition key off and then on again in order to restart the engine.


What should you do? 
Call any authorized Honda motorcycle dealer and make an appointment to have your motorcycle repaired. The dealer will install a new bank angle sensor that corrects the condition. This work will be done free of charge. Please plan to leave your motorcycle for a day to allow the dealer flexibility in scheduling.
