Motorcycle Recall for Brake Defect Causing Fire, Collision
A Honda recall is affecting 126,000 GL-1800 motorcycles from the 2001 to 2012 model years. The reason for recall is a defect with the secondary brake master cylinder that can cause the rear brake to drag and possibly cause a crash or fire. The recall was introduced after 26 complaints had been received, including two regarding fires.
Documents from Honda say that only 4 percent of the recalled motorcycles have the defective part.
If you believe your motorcycle falls into the category of recall, take your motorcycle to a dealer for inspection. The parts will be replaced if necessary. The recall will begin in January.
