All Goldwing Owners!!!!:- Please read the following imformation and if you are able to shed any light on this problem associated with Honda Golwings' pleasereply as soon as possible.


* ABS link braking locking on three times.

* Local Honda Dealership have replaced rear brake disc & pads three times now' due to overheatng.

* Also they have replaced hydrolic valve which was sticking.

Our bike is now in the same dealership for the third time after brakes locking on whilst travelling!!!
The have still not identified the fault and as such we are reluctant to accept that the bike is safe to ride..

We have spoken with Honda Customer Relations who say their technical department only speak to the relative dealerships and we will have to communicate with them... however' the local Honda dealership (who for the moment shall remain unamed) are telling us that they have spoken to Honda direct and thatHonda never returned their call to them.

We find this difficult to beleive of Honda as they have always proved to be a very professional company in the past' and the very laid back couldnt care less attitude of this local dealership is totally unacceptable!


We have been promised an investigation into this matter by a representative for Honda' an we await a call back which is scheduled to take place within 24 hours' so will will see if this actually happens and if so what the outcome will be...

In the mean time we are due to go away touring Italy on our bike which we have just paid £1700 for a trailor and toe bar to be fitted and at present with only five weeks to go we are becomming incresingly concerned abot the implications of undergoing this trip if & when our bike is returned as we feel with no Fault identified' therefore no proof of completed repair! we are putting ourselves in grave danger of a very serious accident and will be looking to Honda to provide us with a duplicate replacement for the journey!!

If you or anyone that you know have suffered any of these systematic problems please let us know what your experieances have been and what the solution was...if any..

Kind Regards'

This is from a friend of mine who is having a hell of a time with his wing. We are touring Italy end of July so it needs to be sorted before then. Any comments/suggestions will be greatly received.

I would be willing to bet the problem is with the left front caliper and/or the auxiliary master cylinder on the left fork leg. Do you happen to know if the anti dive stiffens up at the same time the brakes lock? I can believe the dealers claim about Honda tech line not calling back, happens to us once in a while. It seems no one who says they will call back ever does.

Hi Dave,
Thanks for the info. I have passed on your comments to Tony, the owner. He's had some feedback from our dealer who said it might be the actuator rod, which is situated on top of the engine and requires a major stripdown. I will keep you posted on any developments.
Cheers,
Chris

** Yes the anti dive does stiffen up at the same time as the brakes locking up' andalsoHonda Tech have now spoken to the dealership and have informed them that the actuator rod' could be corroded and causes the rod to enter the chamberat an angle!!!! Aparantly a major strip down due to this being behind the engine???

Your thoughts on this information would be appreciated...

Anthony Palmer..


This was the reply from my friend so thought I'd pass it on to you. Many thanks for your time on this subject.
