Recall - Honda Goldwing
« on: 01/24/12 04:51PM »
Model:  2001-2010 2012 GL1800
Component:  Service Brakes, Hydraulic:  Foundation Components:  Master Cylinder
Potential number of units affected:  126,000

Summary:  Honda is recalling certain model year 2001-2010 and model year 2012 GL1800 Gold Wing motorcycles.  Under certain conditions, there is a possibility that the Combined Braking System's secondary master cylinder may cause the rear brake to drag.

Consequence:  Unexpected braking increases the risk of a crash, and riding with the rear brake dragging may generate enough heat to cause the rear brake to catch fire.

Remedy:  Honda will notify owners and dealers will inspect the secondary master cylinder and if necessary, replace it, free of charge.  The safety recall is expected to begin on or about January 4, 2012.  Owners may contact Honda customer service at 866-784-1870. 

Honda's recall campaign number is S03
NHTSA campaign ID number:  11V567000
