Washington, DC—(ENEWSPF)—December 3, 2011.
Summary: Honda is recalling certain model year 2001-2010, and model year 2012 Gl1800 Goldwing 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 the motorcycle 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.
Notes: Honda’s Recall Campaign Number is S03. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236 (TTY 800-424-9153), or go to http://www.safercar.gov.
