The only "known" issue I'm aware of is the one that prompted a recall, issued in 20089 & 2012

Yep, and that wasn't related to linked brakes at all.  I did have that recall done at some point.

I never said it was specifically a linked brake issue although the recall did note there may be some front brake problems due to the linked nature(as per the quote in my post)

Yeah, on a linked system (every Concours 2010+), if a rock jams the rear pedal down, it will activate both front and rear brakes.  Not a great thing to happen.

I did a quick search of the COG forums and those 2 recalls are the only things I found also.

I wonder if this is ABS related as opposed to linked brakes.
Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.

Perhaps.  The "linked" focus part of the thread started with reply 6.  Otherwise it was presented as an "ABS/Linked" issue.   It is still one I have never seen before.   "Feral Cat" (thread author) registered at 12:36am, posted an hour later, and hasn't posted since (although last active at 11:47).  Need more information.

sometimes if  it looks like a duck and it sounds like a duck it is a duck.

It may very well be a duck that we are discussing here, but that bike may have been a 2014 model purchased brand new in 2017. Time for the deerstalker to be cleaned up a bit?

Only if you are planning to post about a pending lawsuit against a duck, it seems...

Might I remind all members that this thread concerns lawsuits against Kwackers concerning brakes, ABS, and linking.  It is not about ducks of any sort.  I also must say that no ducks have been harmed in any shape or fashion (whilst anyone was looking of course) in this thread.  ::)   Should you wish to discuss ducks, please open a thread in either Open or The Range.   If opening in The Range, ducks are undoubtedly fair game and not subject to any protection whatsover.   Carry on.

I had ducks until last week when a couple of Minks got a hold of them.

I believe the AFLAC duck sports a mean six-pack thanks to yoga.
