  • Parking Brake DCT Tour

    Anyone else have a parking brake that is useless? When completely engaged i can roll the bike forward or backward at will. Nervous parking on an incline my kickstand is the only roll away prevention.

    Yes, you probably need to adjust it. There is another topic on this forum that describes a couple of ways. (Bet you rode off with it engaged a few times. )

    You definitely need to adjust the brake. It should hold firmly.

      I posted the following somewhere on the forum but can't remember where. We removed the left engine side cover (held on by grommets, see page 19 of owners man). The cable is at the top with a rubber boot over it. The boot will slide away to reveal the locking and adjustment nuts. To adjust, the large (long) adjustment nut needs to be adjusted towards the rear of the bike. We made several (not too large) adjustments until the brake held firmly. Replaced the boot, popped the cover back on ... works like a champ.

        So I brought my bike back to the dealer today (they made the adjustment on the spot👍🏻)and was instructed that the parking brake can be adjusted via the bolt pictured on the right side of the bike, rear tire forward of the rear caliper, I was told to loosen the restraining nut and tighten the bolt. Then tighten the restraining nut. I can say it works perfectly now! Just wanted to pass it along.

          I'll have to fiddle with this, mine has been useless since day one as well.

            Had my dealer print our the two pages from the shop manual. Quite simple to accomplish.

              Where the Hell did he get the shop manual?

                Actually we accessed the online version from their computer and printed out what we needed.

                  It makes sense that dealers would have an online version from Honda.

                    My service mechanic here in Canada told me that they have access to a version of the Service Manual on a Honda site they have access to. Guess its still not available to the owners.

                  I just completed my adjustment.

                    Honda made a Electronic Manual available only for the dealers to fix Honda's screw ups
                    And we read daily, there are a lot of them..

                      Did the dealer charge you to adjust the parking brake?

                          When I bought mine, I asked the dealer how many DCT's were brought back for warranty work (they are a good sized dealer and sell a lot of Wings), he said, "None to speak of for anything major and very few for minor issues". I asked if I could take a tour of the shop and he agreed. The only 2018's I saw in the shop were being assembled out of the crate, one getting an oil change and another getting a new front tire due to a defect. They have five tech/mechanics that are qualified for Goldwings. Not challenging your experience, just sharing what I saw.

                            I don't know what Rocky smokes, but he very seldom has an agreeable opinion.

                          My wife and I have not driven either of our DCT Tours with the parking brake on. Both had needed adjusting about every 4000 KM to have any feel to the lever. Once adjusted they hold well on hills.
