RECALL NEWS: Honda Recalls 145,219 GL1800 Models For Dragging Rear Brake Hazard

gl1800b recall?itokVmBpKLmw ©Motorcyclist

More GL1800 models have been added to the recall list addressing Honda's ongoing problem with the dragging rear brakes.

The following report is filed with the NHTSA:

Report Receipt Date: October 23, 2015
NHTSA Campaign Number: 15V700000
Component(s): Service brakes, hydraulic
Potential Number of Units Affected: 145,219
Manufacturer: Honda (American Honda Motor Co.)

THE RECALL: American Honda Motor Co., Inc. (Honda) is recalling certain model year 2001-2010 and 2012-2015 GL1800, 2001-2005 GL1800A and 2013-2015 GL1800B motorcycles. The rear brakes of the affected motorcycles may drag after the brakes are released. ( CLICK HERE to see the 2014 recall announcement concerning GL1800 rear brakes .)

WHAT COULD HAPPEN: 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.

THE FIX: Honda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the secondary brake master cylinder and the rear brake master cylinder, and flush the brake fluid, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Honda customer service at 1-866-784-1870. Honda's number for this recall is JV6. Note: This recall supercedes recall 14V-472.

MORE RECALL INFORMATION: 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
