I just picked my 2019 ATAS DCT on the 9th and 58 miles later the bike would not start. The dealer is replacing the fuel pump and flushing the tank.

Well that’s a bummer Mine went almost 2k miles before it happened. At least they probably have fuel pumps now.

Well that's a kick in the teeth. Not sure why Honda dealers don't just flush the tanks right out of the crate now. That's the fastest I have heard of one getting clogged. Good luck on the replacement. I have put 800 miles on mine this past week with no issues on the new tank/pump.

I was about to as if this is happening to 2019 models. Guess I got my answer. This is definitely unacceptable for a rider like me who rides 50/50. Being stranded in the middle of the boonies is not a great or even good proposition. Trying to hike out 30 miles from a major road of any sort would be a PITA not to mention trying to recover the bike.

Hi FLRider, would you please be willing to contact me to discuss your issue and how you handled it? The exact same incident happened to me being on the same bike and it scared me to death. It could end up in a head on collision, being on a two-lane road. Honda USA directed the dealer to scrub the inside of my tank with a steel brush and flush it. ...... ridiculous, even to the service manager. Thank you in advance.

I have 2019 with 4000 km, purchased in Calgary, Canada. Pulled the tank just to check before I had any problems, and it had the problem as well. Flushed the tank, replaced the fuel filter, and installed the Guglatech kit. Quite a bit of the white flaking welding slag material was clogged in the pre filter, and was washed out of the tank. It was just a matter of time before a full failure. Didn't replace the fuel pump, still seems fine. I would assume you have a problem developing if it hasn't bit you yet, and spend a few hundred to deal with it at the time and place of your choosing. If Honda isn't going to step up and do a recall, this will reduce the chance of being stranded or having a wreck.

777, why is scrubbing it and flushing a ridiculous suggestion? From everything I have read, it seems to be the exact thing that is needed. I might use a short length of rounded chain instead of a brush though. Planning on doing this during the winter on my new ATAS. Then replace the filter and be done with this nonsense.

Hi AZMtnRider, please with all the respect, how do you suggest to get into all the tight spaces, crevices, etc. thru a small hole in the gas tank with a steel brush as Honda suggests and do a thorough job? I certainly wish you good luck and hope you will never have to get into a dangerous (potentially deadly) situation due to a subpar product.
