Honda Service Bulletin: November 9, 2016

Certain 2006-2012 GL1800-8A (Airbag Type)
Airbag Module Replacement - This supersedes GL1800 #24 dated November 9, 2016. Phase 2 

 

Safety Recall: 
Honda has undertaken a SAFETY RECALL on certain 2006-2012 GL1800-8A motorcycles to replace the airbag module.  The airbag module in affected motorcycles includes a potentially defective inflator manufactured by Takata.

According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) equipment defect notifications (16E-042 and 16E-43) filed by Takata, the propellant in some of the subject inflators may degrade over time, which could lead to over-aggressive combustion in the event the airbag is activated during a crash.  Overly aggressive combustion creates excessive internal pressure within the inflator, which may cause the inflator body to rupture upon deployment.

A redesigned airbag module is available to correct this condition.

Safety Consequence:
In the event of an inflator rapture, metal fragments could pass through the airbag cushion material possible causing serious injury or fatality to the motorcycle rider or passenger.
