Have you bumped your head??? You think this recall is going to send Honda broke?

Buell come back to the biking world?? In America maybe. No where else... It took Buell 10 years to shift 100,000 products. In 2012 alone Honda moved over 4,000,000 of their products. This is hardly a grenade. Its not like the forums are full of people with these issues....

I along with a few 500R/F owners here in Hong Kong experienced the exact same issue. It's part of the recall Honda issued last year.




Honda did not take me seriously the first time so they simply re-tighten the bolt and send me away. The second visit they finally decided to remove the engine cover and replace the bolt for us and it fixed the problem without any charges.

Hmmm... I'm thinking this guy's maybe not the world's best clairvoyant. Perhaps we should start a crowdfunding campaign to get him a new crystal ball?
