Although it was more of an experiment, Honda did a great job with the Grom and sold them like hot cakes. However, there seems to be a problem with their fuel pumps, and the issue is present on NSS300 scooters too, so you’ll have to pay your dealership a visit soon.
Honda of North America is recalling certain Grom 125cc motorcycles made between June 2013 to September 2015, as well as NSS300/NSS300S scooters manufactured between June 2013 to March 2015 over some brackets in the fuel pumps.

According to NHTSA, "the resin bracket inside the fuel pump may swell and cause the pump impeller to seize. If the fuel pump seizes, the motorcycle will stall, increasing the risk of a crash."

Although stalling your engine in a straight line isn’t that dangerous and a quick pull of the clutch lever will sort it out until you get to the side of the road, the same thing happening during cornering might be the quickest way to the emergency room.

Honda is about to notify owners of the affected rides and instruct them to go to the nearest dealerships. Here, trained technicians will replace the problematic fuel pump assembly with one that uses a metal bracket. Of course, all the operation will be free of charge.

Apparently, this recall supersedes recall 14V-672, where some motorcycles that were remedied under that campaign are affected by this one as well and need to have the fuel pump replaced again.

If you got more questions, you might contact Honda customer service at 1-888-234-2138. We would suggest you stop riding your Grom or NSS300 manufactured in the specified time period until you fix the issue, or at least keep it at low speeds if you depend on the machine each day to go places.
