Honda Recalls GL1800 Models For Potential Rear Brake Hazard
The following report is filed with the NHTSA:
Report Receipt Date: AUG 01, 2014
NHTSA Campaign Number: 14V472000
Component(s): rear brake system
Potential Number of Units Affected: 126,000
Manufacturer: American Honda Motor Co.
2012 Honda GL1800 Gold Wing is one of the models affected by this recall.
SUMMARY: American Honda Motor Co., Inc. (Honda) is recalling certain model year 2001-2010 and 2012 GL1800 and 2001-2005 GL1800A motorcycles. The rear brakes of the affected motorcycles may drag after the brakes are released.
CONSEQUENCE: A rear brake that drags may increase the risk of a vehicle crash. Additionally, extended riding with the rear brake dragging could generate enough heat to result in a fire.
REMEDY: The remedy for this issue has not been determined. Honda will send owners an interim notification describing how to inspect their motorcycle for rear brake drag. A second notification will be sent when a remedy is available. The recall is expected to begin in September 2014. Owners may contact Honda customer service at 1-866-784-1870. Note: Motorcycles that were remedied under recall 11V-567 for rear brake drag must have their motorcycles remedied again under this campaign.
NOTES: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to safercar.gov .
