This Motorcycle Horn Issue May Increase One's Risk Of Crash

Of all the car, motorcycle, and tractor-trailer parts that make up the vehicles, the horn is one piece that is seldom thought about. Why? Well, for one, people don't necessarily use it all that often. They might sound the unit every once in a while if another car begins swerving into their lane. Then again, they may toot the device to let a friend or co-worker who is carpooling with them know that they have arrived.

For most folks, they only think about the horn when they push it, and it doesn't work, or if vehicle inspection time has rolled around. Perhaps, this single component deserves more attention, though. After all, it can prevent people from getting side-swiped, inform others in driveways that a car is behind them, and warn folks of other potential dangers.

Horns Typically Aren't Viewed As Dangerous

The device is mounted under the hood or attached to the frame of a vehicle where it remains out of sight and out of mind. However, there is a possible problem with 4,348 horns on 2019 CRF450L motorcycles. The American Honda Motor Co. is expected to begin recall number KK4 on December 2, 2019. The horn mount may break, causing the horn to detach from the motorcycle. Of course, this doesn't sound like a massive deal, but it could turn into one.

If the horn interferes with the tire or handlebars, the operator could lose his or her ability to control the cycle. In turn, their risk of crash increases. Additionally, should the piece happen to fall to the ground without affecting the rider, it turns into road debris. As such, a passenger vehicle or another motorcycle could hit the object, increasing their risk of becoming involved in a crash too.

The corporation is supposed to contact owners directly. Then, certified dealers will replace the mount, free of charge. Individuals that have more questions or concerns about the matter should contact Honda's customer service department at 1-866-784-1870. Be sure to mention the recall number KK4 to ensure that you get the most relevant and up-to-date information.

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
