I was in a shop the other day and they were showing me how they are making conversion kits for the local dealer installing after market mufflers designed for a 250 on the new 500s... thought that was a bit odd... who knows maybe they work fine. Then a customer came in with his track CBR500 complaining the ABS died. The shop said they are seeing a lot of problems with ABS systems and expect the dealers to have a recall...

Anyone else heard of this?

ShaZaaaam!

EXACTLY why I ordered a NON-ABS model. I don't like electronic crap on my bike.
Bad enough the thing is fuel-injected.
I'm sure nobody expected this, but I am not surprised.

Abs has problems about wiring.
They rewired mine in a strong way within 30 minutes while in 1000 km service and they told me that they have to do this to all 500 series bikes so like a recall. Expect to get it soon!

Ok well I'm sure its a pretty minor problem but I'm glad Honda is correcting it right away! They always seem to treat their customers pretty well!

Interesting thread, not heard anything this end (in the UK), hopefully it's a minor issue!
