Honda Recalls 126,000 Gold Wings

Honda is recalling over 100,000 Goldwings due to a potential rear brake problem

HONDA is recalling 2001-2010 and 2012 GL1800 GoldWing motorcycle because of a brake problem.  Information released under Honda’s recall # S03 and NHTSA recall Number: 11V567000 indicates there is a possibility under the right conditions that the combined braking system’s secondary master cylinder may cause the rear brake to drag.

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, creating a dangerous and potential fatal situation.  Honda will notify owners of these bikes and inspect the secondary master cylinder and replace it free of charge if necessary.  The recall will begin January 4, 2012, but owners can contact Honda customer service at 866-784-1870, or the NHTSA Vehicle Safety hotline at 888-327-4236
