Honda issues recall for faulty brakes


American Honda Motor Co. is recalling certain 2008 through 2010 ST1300s for brake issues. The potential number of vehicles affected is 2,232.

Honda says that the vehicles’ rear brake reservoir hose may become damaged or leak brake fluid when the rear suspension is repeatedly bottomed out. This could increase the risk of a crash.

This recall applies to the following vehicles:

• 2008 through 2010 Honda ST1300s manufactured from Nov. 15, 2007 through May 27, 2010
• 2008 through 2010 ST1300As manufactured from Nov. 7, 2007 through April 6, 2010
• 2009 ST1300PAs (police vehicles) manufactured from Nov. 18, 2008 through Dec. 8, 2009.
