The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported today that American Honda Motor Company has issued a recall of the following motorcycles:

  • 2002-2004 GL1800/A (GoldWing SE)
  • CBR1000XX (Blackbird)
  • 2002 VFR800 (Interceptor)
  • 2003-2004 VFR800/A (Interceptor)
  • 2003-2004 ST1300/A
According to the NHTSA:
These motorcycles equipped with combined-brake systems have a proportioning control valve (PCV) that mechanically proportions brake force when the rear brake is applied. A seal in some PCV's is improperly shaped, and brake fluid leakage may occur. If the motorcycle continues to be used after a leak occurs, the rear brake would eventually become inoperative. A loss of rear brake force could increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the rear brake for leakage. If leakage is confirmed, the dealer will replace the PCV. The recall is expected to begin on February 3, 2005.
The Office of Defects Investigation, which is a branch of the NHTSA, has not yet added this recall into its online database as of this writing.
