American Honda has conducted Dealer meetings in each Service District to present and discuss the procedures required in completing the 2002 and 2003 GL1800/A Gold Wing Frame Weld Safety Recall. In those meetings it has become apparent that some issues require further clarification:

The Recall instructions are to add TIG welding to all AFFECTED motorcycles. Welding is NOT limited to just those were cracks are visible. The Recall is a preemptive action intended to minimize the possibility of future problems in this area of the frame.
The Frame Parts Kit (H/C: 762082) described in the Service Bulletin on page three is in short supply. Automatic allocations of this kit has started but only on a very limited basis. As we await larger quantities, a limited supply of this kit is available by calling AHM at xxx-xxx-xxxx. If you call, be prepared to provide the VIN and the customer’s name with address, for the motorcycle where the requested kit will be used. We will send a kit to you, via overnight delivery.
Again, please consult the VIN range listed below to identify AFFECTED motorcycles.

AFFECTED UNITS:

2002 Model:
Non ABS Model: From VIN: 1HFSC470*2A111803 Thru VIN: 1HFSC470*2A113582
