Honda Gold Wing recall – 2001-2012 GL1800/A (rear brake)

Honda issues recall/'inspection notice for Gold Wing's secondary master cylinder

Honda issues recall/’inspection notice for Gold Wing’s secondary master cylinder

Honda has issued a recall notice calling for the inspection of the secondary master cylinder for all Honda Gold Wings, model years 2001-2012.  This is a follow-up to a similar recall/inspection issued in 2011.

According to Honda, the problem is that on some units, the secondary master cylinder is “not sufficient in preventing the rear brake from dragging.”

Oddly, Honda is advising Gold Wing owners affected by this notice “A permanent repair is not yet available and Honda will send you a subsequent letter when one becomes available.”

Honda specifies a 4-step procedure for owners to inspect the rear brake, and say if a problem is identified, to contact your local Honda dealership to arrange an inspection, free of charge.
