OK, well, this is getting interesting. Here's my question - If my bolts, which, assuming they're the same ones Hyperlitefreak26 posted the pictures of and which are clearly visible on the kickstand side of the engine, aren't leaking and aren't visibly compromised, can't I just ignore the recall (which I have not yet received, anyway) and save the trip to the dealer and all the downtime and hassle?
I was kind of excited there for a while because I thought I was going to get my valve adjustment inspection for free with the recall, but now that I see that the bolts in the recall are on the outside of the engine and Honda says the recall fix takes only a half-hour to do, it looks like they won't have to get into the top end of the engine to do the service, so no free valve adjustment.
Am I right?
