As long as the tech doing the work doesn't get interrupted, the repair should only take a few hours. What slowed mine down is a couple fasteners were worn out that we didn't have in stock. Not that it mattered since our roads were all snow and ice and un-rideable anyways...

I just had mine done yesterday. The dealer said that for a bike (two wheeler) it takes about 2 hours however mine is a trike and it took most of a day. Arlie

I just received my letter this week from Honda Corp. about the brake recall for our GW. It will probably be March before I take it in.....I didn't see a time restriction in the recall information.

A friend of mine took his bike in to have the brake recall fix on his bike and is now reporting a "spongy" feel to the rear brake... kinda like you have to pump the brakes on a car when the fluid is low. Anyone else have this problem? It makes me a little nervous about getting the recall work done, because, as we all know, sometimes, in an urgent braking situation, you may not have the luxury of time to pump the brakes a few times before you can trust them to stop you.

I suspect improper bleeding, with air left in one of the many possible trap points.
I would contact the dealership who did the work.

I had mine done in 2012 and it was actually fine and had the newest recall done no issues here. Hope they got it right this time.

Trike brake

Okay, we just bought our 1800 trike last week and I see there is a recall for the rear brake secondary master cylinder. Went to the Honda site and checked the Vin, it says "Recall Status: Recall INCOMPLETE." I'm thinking this means we need to take it in to have this looked at and will give them a call to be sure. My question is, will they still correct the defect at no cost even if it has been converted to a trike?

I think the answer is yes. I believe, based on what my dealer told me, was that Honda started out doing it on trikes and then back sometime in Dec. started saying no to trikes. But they have changed back to saying yes to the recall for trikes. I think the problem is the procedure is different depending on which trike kit you have. It was confusing to mother Honda what to do depending on what kit you have.
