Brake recall

Postby crock4 » Thu Nov 19, 2015 5:52 pm



I got a call from the dealer today to bring my wing in for the brake recall. They are supposed to replace rear, and secondary master cylinders. They will flush entire system, both before, and after changing parts using a total of 8 bottles of fluid. Should take about 3 hours. No cost.

Lucky guy. I called my dealership three weeks ago, explained why I was calling. They got hold of Mother Honda Canada and were told to expect info during the following week, but I have not heard back from them since, and they have no idea what they are expected to do. Our Transport Canada recall states everything that you just told us, but Honda will decide on their own what they will do. The snow began here last night, so they will be salting the roads, and so - they do not get my bike now till next spring unless they pick it up. And I will not allow them to road test it till spring.

I was told Honda's decision is to replace, not inspect, and make sure all the old fluid has been flushed out. They also said the procedure for bleeding the brakes will remain the same. I'll let you know if they do it the way they said.

Got my recall work done, picked it up this evening. They put new rear, and secondary master cylinders on, and flushed 6 bottles of brake fluid thru it. They told me 8 the first time I talked to them, don't know what happened with that. I'll take it out tomorrow see how it feels. Its only a short ride home so it's hard to tell yet, but the rear pedal feels a little stronger than before.

Locally the weather is iffy but recall for me requires 70 miles one way and no return ride. A buddy living much closer says the dealerships are saying 10 day turn around. I can't do the 10 day duration off the road unless they have a room, as I ride almost daily still. Although I've no signs of brake dragging, I have had to bleed and flush my rear brake circuit about every 5-6 months. Recently noticed some weirdness and needing to double pump my rear brakes unless I started applying front brake first. So having read the recall procedures I flushed all my brakes excessively last week-end. Once bled they are back up to snuff, but this time I noticed a white cruddy mess exited my rear circuit that was about 2" long in the vacuum tube. I had to really tromp hard on the brake peddle at one point preceding this milky goop exiting the system, felt to me like it cleared a plugged up soemthing. I'm assuming it was water that got trapped in the fluid from somewhere, but who knows. I can't get an appointment for the recall yet but have less concern at the moment as rotor temps are fine and I've had no prior braking or wear issues except the required 6 month bleed (and I think I've beat that issue this time).

On a side note I also disassembled my ADV, cleaned and re-greased the piston and it works fine again, a few months ago it locked up and I disabled it. I found the factory grease in the ADV had hardened like pipe dope; this ADV was purchased new less than 2 years ago.

Got my recall also it is for campaign # K37. The recall says replace the secondary master cylinder replaced. I called the local Dealer and was told to bring the bike in so they can see if the earlier recall was completed, and they would order parts from there. Given the time of year I guess it will wait until spring

I called my not-so-local dealership again and they related it took them 6 hours for their first brake recall job. Dealership gets paid for 3 hours; I told him I'd make a deal with him, I'll do the work if they get the kit and I'd even bring my own tools! He sounded like he might take me up on it. Frankly in 6 hours I could change tires, and air filter and still do the brake recall. So fed up with "bring it in and leave it we'll work it in a week or so".

Just received my letter today. Bike is scheduled to go in to storage facility tomorrow. Probably have to make a few calls before I take it to storage tomorrow. Does anyone know if there is a time limit to making arrangements to have work done?
TIA

Can't see there being a time limit. My letter is date December 2015, and covers bikes from several previous years. December is not riding season in my area. Unless they offer to come pick it up, I can't see them even trying to enforce a time limit. Honda went to great lengths to locate my bike as I am not the original owner. This is a safety issue which has taken them a decade to address Just my thoughts

I got my recall letter today and called the dealer. He said they were already slammed doing the recalls and also said to call back
Jan 6th or 7th. He would be able to schedule me a time to do it while I waited or pick it later that day. He was happy because
this was going to keep the shop busy thru the winter.

The kit was ordered onTuesday of last week, it came in on Wednesday of this, week, I'll drop the bike off on Wednesday before Christmas of next week and pick it up on Saturday after Christmas.

I never did get a notice in the mail. I only had to go and talk to the service writer to get the ball rolling.

This is why I had mine done already -- you will be waiting for your turn to come up in spring..
Bikes will be standing in the dealers yards while they wait for parts from Honda.
This recall affects 145,000 bikes !
Just my 2¢ opinion -- but come spring I will be ready to ride ! :geek:

I get it, but unfortunately, my dealer is waiting on parts and wouldn't have them until after the holiday. I'm a little nervous about riding in ice, snow & salt. Looks like I'll be waiting in line come spring. :(

My local dealers (2) in Idaho are saying drop it off and we'll work it in; the first one took them 6 hours. Estimated turn around is 10 days. Well since they haven't a guest room I too will be waiting as they are 70 miles away. I offered to through my own labor and tools at it if they provided the kit/parts - for a moment I think he considered it! So it was my time to flush and bleed brakes and clutch anyway so I flushed a lot more fluid through the system this time and there is a noticeable improvement, regardless of the lack of any brake dragging. I think I'll be ok for a while longer (fingers crossed, knocking on wood). :roll:

As I understand the problem --it seems okay until it locks up ! That could ruin a perfectly good day.
Don't wait...do it ASAP and never look back.

Appointments! We need no stinking appointments! :lol: I thought they would have but it seems it took them 6 hours to accomplish a few of them and that idea went out the window. 6 hours...whew I could have probably replaced the entire brake system and plus air filter, oil and oil filter. That makes me really think twice about where I should get this recall done!

Dropped mine off a couple days ago before the snow hit. He said they are really backed up right now (not just the recall, but everybody getting their bikes serviced), so it probably won't be ready until after the 1st. We're going out of town until the 1st anyway, so that will work for me.

Tom - forget about going to Carl's. They wanted to "inspect" the bike to see if it needed the work and then order the parts if it did. And probably tell me about all the other work that they found that it needs. Just go out to Canyon. Much better people to work with.

I picked up mine from the dealer Wednesday, took only 2-3 hours, he told me they are now swamped by calls and every one wants it by Christmas, good luck he said. I was the first one to be done, just luck I called to check on Monday. Merry Christmas to all. :mrgreen:
