Honda is recalling over 145,000 Goldwing-platform motorcycles in the U.S. to repair rear brakes that drag which can cause a fire or crash. This is the third recall for some of the motorcycles. There have been 22 reports of brakes dragging and eight small fires.
The recall includes:
• HONDA GL 1800 2001-2010,2012-2015
• HONDA GL 1800A 2001-2005
• HONDA GL 1800B 2013-2015
Honda says the brakes can drag after being released by the rider. Dealers will replace two brake master cylinders. Some of these same bikes were recalled in 2011 and 2014 for the same problem. The Goldwing platform is arguably one of the most popular touring motorcycles in the world and it has a substantial and loyal following in Florida and the rest of the United States. If you own a Goldwing, contact your local Honda dealer immediately so you can get your bike repaired and safely back on the road. If you know someone who owns a Goldwing, please share this recall information with them.
