Wow surprise, surprise yet another recall Can't believe no one has POSTED about it. It deals
with the outer clutch breaking or shattering!! Causing the rear wheel to lock up. This could kill you
at high speeds. Also if it doesn't lock up the rear wheel there is a chance of the the casing
being shattered and oil being blown all over your rear tire. Again at high speeds this could be
your death. This recall hhas been issues by HONDA !!! As of Feb. 28 I recieved it in the Mail.

I am so dissapoint in the CBR 929. Wish I could get a refund and I though I would never dis
a CRB.. I had a couple of CBR 900's a 1993 and a 1995. These were real machines.

Can anything else be recalled on the CBR 929??? 4 Months ago the CRB 929 was recalled for
fuel line. Which could cause a High pressure fuel leak near your ignition system.

SO WTF?? Didn't Honda test the CBR 929?? These are not minor Recalls..

So to bitch so much BUT WHEN I SPEND $10,000 CASH I would like to think I am buying
something that will not EXPLODE or FALL APART WHEN I AM RIDING !!!!

Ahhhhhh

Thanks Robert I have not logged into SportBike for 44 Days. So I guess I missed the
last forum. Still I am very upset with the CRB 929. I wish I wasn't.

I'm not trying to defend them (Honda). But at least they are fessin up to there error and taking responsibility for the problem.

They could be like some other manufacturer and ignore or not even acknowledge the problem.

No big deal really. In and out in half a day, needed an oil/filter change anyway.

I'll defend then. This is unusual for Honda even with a new bike. Honda quickly issued recalls based on very, very rare occurences on the fuel line and the clutches have only failed under very extreme racing conditions and not at all on the street. This is my understanding and it could be wrong. At least they are taking no chances and getting things fixed and fixed quickly.

I had heard accounts of somewhere less than 10 people worldwide or something rediculous. Maybe you should get my bike's brand if you want a bike that "virtually" has no problems, since there are no recalls for all the things wrong with it?

Mine's going in Wednesday to get it fixed.

From what I hear, it's not a big deal, and is only an issue on high-RPM, clutch-popping starts.

You should really talk to my friend Jason and his R1.

At least Honda is a company that will admit when they have a problem instead of shafting there owners like the great YAMACRAP company

You should be happy that they care for your safety and not just there bank
