Honda and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) have issued a recall or approximately 126,000 Goldwing motorcycles made during the model years of 2001 through 2010 and 2012. Honda has identified a problem with the secondary brake master cylinders of its GL1800 Goldwings. This problem may cause the bike’s rear brakes to drag, increasing the risk of a wreck. Additionally, riding a motorcycle with a stuck rear brake may generate enough heat to cause a dangerous fire.
In January, the company plans to start notifying affected Goldwing owners, asking them to bring their motorcycles to Honda dealers. There, mechanics will inspect and, if necessary, likely replace the defective secondary master cylinder at no charge. For more information on the recall, call Honda customer service toll-free at 866-784-1870.
