Honda recalls more than 2000 Goldwings and Goldwing Baggers over possible rear brake
Aprilia and BMW also recall models over potentially faulty brakes
The GL1800 Goldwing
And the GL1800 F6B Goldwing Bagger
HONDA is recalling 2,222 Goldwings and Goldwing Baggers over a possible fault which could see the rear brake applied unexpectedly, leading to a fire.
The recall affects GL1800 Goldwings and GL1800 F6B Baggers built between June 2000 and September 2015 according to a notice on the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency's website.
The notice says the ‘rear brake may apply unexpectedy and create the fire risk’ due to a blocked valve.
It says: ‘The check valve orifice in the brake system may block with deposits resulting in rear brake drag. The unexpected braking/dragging increases the risk of a crash and continued riding may generate sufficient heat to cause fire.’
Recalled machines are to have their secondary master cylinder and rear brake master cylinder replaced according to the notice.
Honda is one of three manufacturers to recall models over potentially faulty brakes in the last two months, along with BMW and Aprilia.
BMW is recalling 281 C600 Sport and C650 GT maxi scooters built between September 2011 and July last year. Aprilia is recalling 19 RSV4 RF and RSV4 RR superbikes built last October. In the cases of both manufacturers, the potential fault could increase stopping distance.
The VOSA recall notice on the BMWs says: ‘Braking performance may be affected. The front brake hose may not have sufficient flexibility due to the position of the chafe guard. This may lead to chafing and eventually leakage of the brake hose. If leakage occurs stopping distance will be greater leading to a higher risk of collision.’
Affected scooters are to have the front brake hose replaced.
The recall notice on the Aprilias says a hydraulic circuit may be defective and that in certain circumstances it ‘may result in longer than normal braking distances’. It says potentially defective master cylinders will be replaced.
Other bikes recalled since November last year include Ducati’s Multistrada 1200 1200S over a side-stand which could fail, causing the bike to fall over, and Kawasaki’s J300 over a risk of the engine stalling.
Yamaha has launched the second recall of the YZF-R1 and R1M in months, this time over a risk of the gearbox failing. VOSA’s website says: ‘Under extreme conditions certain gearbox components may break or deform causing a loss of drive. This can elevate the risk of collision.’
It says 624 bikes are to be recalled to have their transmission assembly replaced. Visordown revealed in December that the R1 and R1M had been recalled over a risk of fire. That followed a recall of 23 R1Ms in April last year over a potentially faulty rear shock which raised the ‘possibility of loss of control’ according to VOSA’s website.
