    Brake Recall Survey

    My 2006 passed with no issues. Took less then 1/2 hour at the dealer. The dealer told me up front if it did not pass the bike could not be released until the repairs are made. The good thing was the dealer did have the parts in stock if they where needed.

    Re: Brake Recall Survey

    Tim,

    Which Dealer did you go to?

    My Wing is my main source of transportation when I need to go somewhere during the week, so being without it while I wait for parts is not a favorable option for me...

    Thanks Buddy!

    My 2010 is working fine. I have not been in any hurry to take it in. However, we will be leaving on a trip to N.C. in May, so I plan to take it in for the recall and probably for a set of All Balls neck bearings before we depart.

    Took mine in and the dealer said that they had done over 100 and only found 2 that had a problem.

    Re: Brake Recall Survey

    I cannot emphasize strongly enough just how important it is for every Goldwing owner to get the brakes checked. I recently took a 350 mile trip from San Diego, CA to Lake Havasu, Arizona. The bike seemed okay and it rested overnight at my destination. The following morning, I had ridden only two or three miles when suddenly both the front and the rear brakes seized up tight. As of now, the rear cylinder, which was the subject of the published recall, has been replaced, however, there is no clear indication of why the front locked up and is still dragging. My Goldwing has been in a shop in Arizona for over two weeks so far, while the Honda Representative, the Arizona shop, and my original dealer in San Diego try to figure out what the problem is and who is going to pay for the repairs. Stay tuned, but in the meantime, go get yours checked.

    Re: Brake Recall Survey

    Thank you for the post spoon! I recently took my 2008 in and while waiting for the service tech to inspect my bike, got to talking to a fellow rider who's 2006 rear locked up on him while he was riding through a mountain pass doing about 45 MPH. Luckily he was able to drive off the shoulder and bring the bike to an UPRIGHT stop! Mine was fine as are 98% of all the bikes out there, which leads me to my next statement...The recall states that there are ONLY 126,000 units affected by the recall. Well, if the service tech says that they've seen two bikes that need repair for every 100 that are brought in, that means there are 2,520 bikes out there that have the potential of locking up. Well, 2,518. You've got to ask yourself one question: do you feel lucky?

    Re: Brake Recall Survey

    My dealer did the inspection in about 40 minutes from when I brought it in. They said if the repair had been needed, they had the parts and it would be about another hour. No problmes with my bike, so off I went.
