Don't know if any of you have read this. I found it on another forum.

Torrance, CA: American Honda Motor Co., Inc. has notified the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that a potential defect relating to motor vehicle safety exists in the secondary master cylinder on certain 2001-2010 and 2012 model year GL1800 motorcycles.
Situation:
The compensating port hole inside the secondary master cylinder (part of the combined-braking system) can become blocked due to (1) stacking of tolerances in manufacturing and (2) sufficient swelling of the primary pressure cup inside the master cylinder. If the compensating port hole becomes completely blocked, the rear wheel brake caliper can drag after the rider releases the brake input. If this occurs, the rear brake temperature and pressure progressively increase. Unexpected braking increases the risk of a crash and continued riding with the brake engaged can generate enough heat to cause the rear brake to catch fire.
Inspection and Repair:
Honda motorcycle dealers will inspect the secondary master cylinder of all affected motorcycles in dealership stock or sold to customers (consumers and commercial entities). If an inspection indicates that the compensator port hole can become blocked due to this problem, the dealer will replace the secondary master cylinder. Registered owners of affected motorcycles will be contacted by mail and asked to take their motorcycle to a Honda dealer. The dealer will inspect the motorcycle, and if necessary, replace the secondary master cylinder, free of charge.
Additional Details:
Honda motorcycle dealers will immediately receive a transmittal of complete repair instructions. Replacement secondary master cylinders in the U.S. will initially be made available through American Honda’s dealer technical support hotline. Upon approval by NHTSA, American Honda will mail a letter to all registered owners, and also post a copy of the letter on the Honda Brand website: powersports.honda.com. Target dates for website posting are before the end of December 2011, and mail receipt by registered customers should occur before the end of January 2012.
Honda apologizes for any inconvenience this creates, but feels the safety of our customers is the highest priority. Honda encourages every customer to contact their dealer to schedule an appointment upon receiving the SAFETY RECALL letter.

when did this come out? I just got my bike from the shop and they might have already done this if it was a few days ago.

Fords don't have any more recalls than any other vehicles, they just rust out faster, :badgrin:

(and yes, I have some Fords, so I am allowed to bash em)

So true Viking but mine seems to be the exception. But that only concerns the Rust . My Star SEL (that has about 95% of the available options.)is full of electronic gremlins. I'm tempted to take my bell off of Baby & put into The Beast. Anyway I just like bashing ( in fun of course) the 1800's. I mean, they are just soooo uggly!:badgrin::badgrin::badgrin::ROFL::ROFL::ROFL::ROFL::ROFL:

Plugged compensating hole. Sound familiar? That's the little port in the master cylinder that's caused brake dragging, brakes locking, impossible bleeding and all those headaches since the first Goldwings were built.

I had one of those - a 2000. Pretty impressive load of options, but I got rid of it when the first Gremlin appeared. Someone else is chasing them now..... :badgrin::badgrin::badgrin:

Mines an 02 but I have with the help of Windstar forum have managed to clear most of the gremilins except that occasionally my side doors don't responde to the close button & all the time, my 2 "brake idiot" lights are on and I now know from an emergency situation that the problem is sesors and there is no problem with the brakes.:cheesygrin::cheesygrin:

Paul, there are not enough Bells made to get rid of THAT Gremlin!:ROFL::ROFL::ROFL::ROFL: Acually though, they were a pretty decent little car but most of us @ that time wanted nothing to do with "little" cars. For me it was my New Yorkers & 98's.:D:D:D

Thanks Mark. That problem was taken care of in 01. I will drive this beast until it dies however that may be just like Baby Blue. Now that's it! No more Hijacking!:lash::lash::lash::badgrin::badgrin::badgrin::badgrin::badgrin:
