You drove 6 hours out of Houston to pick up a new 2017? I think 3 or for Houston Honda dealers have left over 17 and 18s on the floor. Hopefully one of the local Honda dealers is working with you to resolve the other issues.
The correct way to determine lean position will be to log the AFR of a couple rides to tell for sure - other wise we are just guessing.
I am looking through the service manual and the parts list and I am not seeign a knock sensor for the 2017+ bikes... am I missing something here??? I hope I can just not find the part number.
If we don't have a knock sensor, then how is Honda hoping to prevent the bikes from self destructing?
It took a solid 8hrs to pick the bike up, it was a little over 1000 miles round trip. I tried buying from several local dealers (Wild West, Team Mancuso, Stubbs, Woods Fun Center in Austin) Mind you it was a couple weeks ago, and it looks like they have more inventory now. However, no local dealer would match the price or come within shooting distance of it. I’ve owned more than my fair share of bikes, most purchased new and local but a few have come from out of state. I’ve bought an Aprilia Tuono V4 from Maryland, a BMW GSA from Chicago, and my last CBR from Oklahoma. The Tuono came delivered from UPS. I thought that was pretty good.
I emailed the purchasing dealer about the cracked tail fairing, called Honda Powersports North America, and took the bike to a local Honda dealership here. The rep with Honda was worthless to be honest. He said there was nothing he could do, and all claims have to originate at the dealer level. The purchasing dealer said the GM was of course not there, and they would need to talk to the regional rep. The local dealer said he would call me later that day with an update, but that never happened.
The engine noise didn’t start until yesterday evening, got progressively worse, and made me think it’s only a matter of time before it grenades itself. Could be wrong, but it doesn’t sound good. If you have a good dealer/ service guy that you use please let me know here or through pm and I will take it to them and let them go through the bike.
