Honda Motorcycle Recall
Honda has recalled 2008-2010 ST 1300 motorcycles due to brake defects; Honda says 2,232 motorcycles are affected.
Honda says the following motorcycles are recalled: 2008-2010 ST1300 built from Nov. 15, 2007 through May 27, 2010; 2008-2010 ST1300A built from Nov. 7, 2007, through April 6 2010; and 2009 ST1300PA Police Motorcycles built from Nov. 18, 2008, through Dec. 8, 2009.
When the rear suspension on the ST 1300 motorbike is repeatedly bottomed out (fully compressed), the rear brake reservoire hose may become damaged and leak brake fluid; if this occurs, the rider could experience a loss of rear-brake performance, increasing a risk of a crash.
Dealers will replace the ST 1300 motorcycle’s rear-brake reservoir hose free of charge. The motorbike safety recall is expected to begin on or before July 26, 2011. Owners may contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009 (reference Honda Recall No. R86).
Owners affected by the motorcycle recalls may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or visit safercar.gov.
