Frame Weld

American Honda is conducting a Safety Recall on affected 2003-2004 GL1800/A Gold Wings to reinforce frame welds.Certain frame welds may not have sufficient strength. High loads created when riding on rough road surfaces or through potholes can cause the affected welds to crack. In the worst case, the welded area could break without warning, resulting in lower cross member separation and rear suspension collapse. This could result in a crash. All affected units will have their frame welds repaired.
