I experience hesitation and power loss when accelerating to pass at highway speeds. A very dangerous situation results, having to quickly decelerate and maneuver to the roadside. This happened on three different occasions over the past two months.
Material is flaking off the weld seams of the fuel tank and clogging the filter. I had not experienced performance issues yet, but other have reported the filter becoming completely clogged, stalling the engine. I removed the filter, cleaned it and reinstalled. There is still more material on the weld seams that could flake off. The flakes in the drain pan in the attached photo came from the tank. The other photos are of the inside of the tank and the fuel filter.

The bike starts stalling while it is on throttle. Further investigation leads to finding that some unkown residue falls apart from within the fuel tank welding clogging the fuel pump filter. I have found plenty other rider with the exact same issue.
Africa twin adventure sport would sound like it had a misfire, and when the throttle is twisted the bike will hesitate and make a popping sound. I have tried different octane ratings and i? M still having the issue regardless. When i need to accelerate the bike hesitates and makes a popping sound. The issue occurs at least once every ride and it is very annoying. Purchased the africa twin new and i? M having issues at 2,000 miles. For the popping or hesitation to occur it can happen at stand still or on the move. There is no warning to when the issue will happen. Whether at speed or at a stand still when the throttle is twisted the bike will pop and hesitate. I believe this is the issue of honda? S fuel system. Many owners are experiencing this same issue. On the inner lining of the fuel tank white flakes come off the tank and mix with the fuel, then creating an issue for the fuel pump. Sounds like the bike is being starved of fuel, and i am suspecting it is this exact issue.

Lately didn't have the same power,and delay when you open the throttle. When riding the motocycle ,the motor turns off 25mph and above multiple times. Different miles per day. I thought it was me driver it was not. I went on a ride with 3 riders 3/21/2020 305 miles the motocycle motor turned of when riding 4 times that day. I called the dealership to pick up the motocycle from my house. Tha motocycle is very unsave to ride. It happens on city streets,highway, all riding condition. I went on the africa twin 2018-2019 series bikes forums. I am not the only person with this problem.
For the 4th time in the last year my bike has had fuel delivery cut out at highway speed. This caused a huge loss of speed and momentum, and almost lead to me being hit by a car. When this happens the bike lurches violently and is difficult to control. In every case i have had to stop on the side of the road and shut the bike down. I shift the bike down, wait and restart. In every case the bike has gone a few miles then it happens again, repeatedly. I brought this to the attention of the dealer. The first time they said i probably had bad fuel, and to try again. It happened again in canada 2 months later. And again on the way back to minnesota. This time he dealer checked for computer errors, said i had one and that they corrected it. Today on mn hwy 10 the fuel cut out at 70 mph, almost causing my wife to run into me. This is unsafe and unpredictable, and should not be happening to a one year old bike. *tr
2019 honda africa twin adventure sports. Poor running conditions due to contamination in the tank. The vehicle would suddenly and unexpectedly lose power and/or stall. This has resulted in dangerous conditions because it usually happens in times of acceleration when passing. One particularly unsafe incident happened when i had crossed the double yellow to attempt a pass and the vehicle lost power rather than accelerate. I also had it stall and die while trying to clear an intersection. I honestly believe that this is an issue that can result in a serious accident resulting in injury or loss of life. Honda's "fix" for this issue is questionable at best. It is unproven as to whether or not it is a long term fix and results in a lack of confidence in the repair. Note the attached work order "cleaned the tank as best i could with scotch brite in an attempt to clean inside of fuel tank per honda. " nobody knows if this is really a fix, including honda. Only time will tell and that is not a good solution since the issue can be so dangerous. I feel honda needs to address this through a proper and proven safety recall. The issue is most common under hard acceleration, but it has also exhibited this behavior under normal driving, while idling at traffic lights, turning through an intersection, etc.
