Honda has issued a recall with the NHTSA because of a fault with the master cylinder on the Honda Goldwing. Affecting 2001-2010 & 2012 models, the secondary master cylinder for the Goldwing’s combined braking system could have a fault that causes the rear brake to engage and drag.

Because this could destabilize the motorcycle, and poses a potential fire danger from heat caused by excessive friciton, Honda is recalling all 126,000 Goldwings the issue could potentially affect.

Honda will be notifying Goldwings owners, and Honda dealers will inspect, and if necessary, replace the secondary master cylinder free of charge. The recall is expected to begin January 4th, 2012.







Concerned Honda Goldwing owners can call Honda customer service at 1-866-784-1870. And as always, the NHTSA is available at 1-888-327-4236 or safercar.gov.
