Latest update: Honda wants my dealer to tear down the entire engine, not just the right side that they already have. It will take at least 2 weeks, while they order tools for the job, and get it done. Once again, I'm not at all pleased. The dealer is really trying to help, but HONDA is being a pain in the neck. I talked to HONDA customer support this morning, with the case number the dealer gave me. They say there's nothing they can do. They have no spare engines to give me. They have to be 100% sure that whatever caused the problem will not happen again.
You'd think I'd be happy about driving a new 2018, but I'm not. I love the bike, except for the driving position. The dealer did install a back rest for me, but the bars are still to low and too far forward. Problem is, I can't do any modifications, or add the accessories I need, so I have:
No place to mount my GPS or Phone,
No passenger arm rests, so my wife can't ride with me,
No trunk rack, so I don't have anywhere to carry the extra clothes we need for a trip we planned for this weekend.
No trailer hitch.
No road pegs for me or her.
No drink holders.
No CB. I rode with SCRC yesterday, and had NO communication!
No Air Wings.
If I had MY new bike, I'd have all this stuff already installed and I'd be happy. I DON'T, so I'm NOT.
Thanks for reading my vent.
