Hey buddy,Hellow to all, its been a long time but I have somthing on my mind. I sold my 08 L.E. after it was rebuilt and not to my expectations (high oil cosumption) it got rings and a new piston. it was never the same after that it, went in at 3800 miles. although it didnt use oil anymore it just didnt have the same zip and it loped at idle, I lost over 4000 dollars on this bike.
Here is my point I have been shopping for another as I still want this version,since Honda wont just come out and tell there loyal customers when they resolved the ring problem and what oil is proper for this bike it concerns me deeply when there are so many 08s out there for sale and out of warranty
with low milage, could I be buying a bigger problem buying a bike like this. it seems to me people are dumping them in mass if you look at Cycle Trader and ebay, this is driving down the showroom price of the 08s as well and the overall value of this bike new or resale.
We have only Honda to blame for this due to there lack of transperancy no one really knows which 08s are affected, I think Honda's aproch to this has been all wrong.
So Ill throw it out there "SHOULD YOU BUY AN 08 RR OUT OF WARRANTY"
how can an 08 blade be out of warranty ?, think you get three years with the manufacturers.
