Honda Gold Wing Recall | Over 145,000 GL1800s Affected
2015 Honda Gold Wing 40th Anniversary

Honda has recalled 145,219 of its GL1800 Gold Wing motorcycles due to rear-brake issues. The following models are affected: 2001-2010 and 2012-2015 GL1800, 2001-2005 GL1800A and 2013-2015 GL1800B motorcycles.

Honda says that on the affected Gold Wing motorcycles, the rear brakes may drag after the foot lever is released. This can increase the risk of a crash or generate enough heat to cause a fire.

Honda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the secondary brake master cylinder and the rear brake master cylinder, and flush the brake fluid, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

Owners may contact Honda customer service at 1-866-784-1870. Honda’s number for this recall is JV6. Note: This recall supersedes recall 14V-472.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
