Yeah, that is not normal at all. Has your bike been down?

If you are under warranty (2012 - right?), dealer should fully check it out. Do you have another dealer option? I know there are huge differences between some dealers customer service, AFTER the purchase. I got free replacement of small stuff (substantial - to me) that I wasn't satisfied with. No questions asked. The dealer doesn't have to cover the cost, it is covered by HONDA. The dealer just has to justify it. And, if you have a service dept that isn't lazy, shady, or incompetent, they will take care of you.

No, they can't if the bike doesn't have the proper smoke in the required video. Even with burning a quart in 700 miles. That makes it a POS. I owned it, I have the right to label.

Before you start throwing around corrections and information, make sure they're valid.

Yea I took it back where I bought it first. Because I like the sales dept. The service dept. on the other hand was not very helpful. So I am taking it to a different dealer this week. There is also a little spot between the fairings next to the headlight where it looks like the paint has rubbed off a little. They said Honda only covered paint for 90 days. I am a service writer in a ford dealership and I know If you want to help some one on warranty claims that you can. I thought since I bought the bike there that they would take care of me. To bad they are not as good as the sells team.

That means your water pump needs to be replaced. It is a fairly easy piece to replace and any mechanic worth anything should have found it after letting the bike sit a bit. The issue to worry about is why the water pump when out in the first place. Did you run the bike with little or no coolant for any length of time?
