Just came home from spotting and taking photos at SFO. Around 2:40 pm NW 27 (DC-10 reg N238NW) was cleared to take off on 28R. I saw the plane accelerating but then it slowed down and just cruised to the end of the runway. Nothing spectacular.
I only heard the pilots said they aborted the take off but no further details. Just wondering if anyone else can fill in the details.

I have not heard what it was yet. I'm sure the airline as to put them up in a hotel. It was a aircraft problem. Most airlines have contracts with hotels in case this happens. They also may have sent them on other carriers, though no scheduled flights to Narita leave SFO after 1:35p.
