Honda recall

Recall #: 2017010
Models Involved: 2007-2008 Honda GL1800
Number of Vehicles: 1492
Problem: On certain motorcycles, long-term exposure to high absolute humidity and temperature, combined with high temperature cycling, could eventually degrade the propellant contained in the airbag. This could cause the airbag to deploy with more force than normal. As a result, if the motorcycle were involved in a collision that warrants airbag deployment, fragments could be propelled toward motorcycle occupants, and the airbag assembly could be damaged, preventing proper function.
Correction: Dealers will replace the airbag module. Note: Canadian climate results in the propellant degrading slowly. The recall is being conducted as a precaution to address future risk, and is expected to replace airbag inflators before their function would be affected.
