Recall is for all 1800's, including 2012's.
It is on the secondary master cylinder that is mounted to the left front fork. A tolerance stack up error can result in the release port being blocked, which will not allow the rear brakes to retrack properly. Result is "dragging" rear brake can build to the point it will lock the rear brake and/or cause a fire!
Honda's est. is 126,000 units w/4% being defective.
You do not have to wait on your recall notice. You can have you bike checked whenever you want to. Test takes about 30min's. ... ersion=YES

The letters must be getting out now. This means many, many new threads about this. Here is the original thread:

It ain't about the destination - it's all about the journey
