Talked to shop today and they are waiting on Honda Rep. to come in Friday. Also told me that they are doing a new brake bleed.
Also rear brake i dragging and getting hot. Told them things inside saddle bags got very hot. Has anyone else had this problem?

Yes we know why the shuDDer occurs. An air pocket gets trapped in a high spot in the brake plumbing behind the left fork high above the secondary master. If one is mechanically inclined and has and can modify the tool needed to safely open the compression nut at that high spot, the air can be purged and the shudder will be gone. I do not know if following the last step helps too, never got anymore air from that location.

The tool needed is a compression nut wrench, looks like a 6 point box wrench with an opening just big enough to fit over the metal tubing. I think it is either 12 or 14mm and it ha to be short as the space is limited. Mine was a combination 12 plus 14 and I scored it with a hack blade and broke the handle of the wrench with a BFH and vice. Pump the rear peddle several time and hold it down while opening the joint, close the joint and then release the peddle. Repeat about 6 times. DO wrap a shop towel around the wrench and fitting, your Tupperware will appreciate not having brake fluid on its finish.

I picked bike up after dealer said Honda told them was nothing wrong with brakes. On the ride home on hwy 232 in Tennessee with temp at about 80 degs. it is still there. I'm so done with Honda. This is my 6th Goldwing and my last unless Honda steps up and owns up to a real problem. Also dealer said they did Rocky Bleed.

Sure am glad my wing has never had the brake shudder issue and yes I did have the brake recall done about 10,000 miles ago.

So frustrating, I really doubt if they did the Rocky bleed, its not in the instruction's. LOL
Do you have a lemon law in Tenn.?
Go up the chain of command and don't give up, make a few phone calls. Maybe you've already done this.
I haven't taken my bike in for the recall..It works just fine as it is.
Good Luck.

I'm with you. My brakes have been just fine for 80k miles now and I believe they will be just fine the way they are. Don't need to add a shudder or risk broken parts or improper reassembly.

My brakes work fine. I'll do the pre ride check once in a while, which is just apply the rear brake a few times, then turn the rear wheel. I do this, my rear wheel always turns, my brakes always work, my brakes don't stutter, I don't have a wobble from installing the front wheel incorrectly. After recall, who knows how many problems will be experienced. Even a few that had no problem before the recall, had brakes locked up after the recall work. I've been f**ked too many times to risk ruining my GL1800 by incompetent repair of things not broken. Not a Honda problem, it's the same if you own a Honda, Toyota or a Freightliner semi or the rest. Fact is this recall involves a lot of work to do correctly, and a lot of work done correctly is never going to be the norm.
