Honda Goldwing recalled over brake fire

Honda Goldwing F6B a

Honda Australia has issued an urgent recall for its Goldwing and F6B motorcycles over problems with the brakes which could cause the brake disc to overheat and start a fire.

The Australian recall notice says the problem is caused by prolonged exposure to certain types of brake fluid.

This could lead to a reaction between the fluid and the brake hose material.

“The resultant ‘residue’ can obstruct the return gallery of the secondary brake master cylinder, causing it to bind and overheat,” the notice says.

“If left unattended, the brake disc may become so hot it could cause a fire and may pose a hazard to a consumer.”

Owners have been advised to arrange for their bike to inspected and repaired, by their nearest Honda Dealer, “without delay”.

  1. My 2004 VFR 800 also has honda’s DCBS system and I have just had to buy new brake hoses as I had the same problem with the rear disc becoming so hot you could smell it whilst riding

    Several attempts at flushing and bleeding the brake system did not fix the problem and the secondary master cylinder took forever to bleed through even with a vacuum bleeder and large chunks of rubber goo substance came out after several hours of bleeding

    Now with all new hoses and a rebuild of the secondary master cylinder many $$ later the brakes now operates as they should

    Maybe I should of hassled Honda but the local dealer network in Australia is TOTALLY hopeless when it comes to servicing
    I took it upon myself and have fixed it after being given the run around by a local dealer
