I got the letter from Honda listing the serial numbers involved in the recall. I checked my generator and it was included.

I took it to a dealer. They checked it out and said that on mine the device under recall had been properly installed and there was no problem. However, he said that they had checked some that had hoses almost worn through.

Since those hoses carry gasoline...this could be a serious problem. Liquid gasoline on a hot motor...NOT good.
