American Honda is conducting a frame weld recall on 2002 and 2003 GL1800/A Gold Wing motorcycles per the VIN ranges listed below.
A recall notice was mailed to all owners of AFFECTED motorcycles on October 6, 2003.
A separate letter was mailed on October 13th to owners of GL1800s NOT affected advising them that while a recall was under way, their motorcycle was not involved.
We have received calls from customers that cause us to believe a computer generated mailing error may have allowed some customers whose motorcycles are AFFECTED to mistakenly receive the October 13th letter.
If you receive an inquiry from a customer stating they received the recall notice, their motorcycle is AFFECTED regardless of any subsequent mailing they might have received.
Please consult the VIN range listed below.
2002 Model:
Non ABS Model: From VIN: 1HFSC470*2A111803 Thru VIN: 1HFSC470*2A113582
ABS Model: From VIN : 1HFSC474*2A102394 Thru VIN: 1HFSC474*2A102823
2003 Model:
