Honda Has Recalled the 2002-2003 GL1800 and GL1800A

(SafetyAlerts) - The U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced.

American Honda Motor Company, Inc.

Models: Honda GL1800 Years: 2002-2003

Honda GL1800A Years: 2002-2003

Number Potentially Involved: 8,196

Dates of Manufacture: & March – September 2002

Defect: On some motorcycles, certain frame welds do not meet manufacturing specifications. High loads created when riding on rough road surfaces or through potholes can cause the affected welds to crack. The welded area could break, resulting in rear suspension collapse or lower cross member separation, increasing the risk of a crash.

Remedy: Dealers will inspect and reinforce the welds on all frames. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during October 2003. Owners may contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009.

[NHTSA Recall No. 03V350].

your dealer will know about them. If you have a vehicle
affected by one of these posted recalls be sure and
write down the NHTSA 
If your dealer doesn't know about the recall when you
check, ask them how they are notified of recalls and
when the next update is due.
