Looks like Honda brethren got hit by bad ohlins

RECALL: 2014-15 Honda CBR1000S Sportbikes

Hmmm not just a Beemer problem. I wonder how Honda will treat their customers when they are waiting for the shock to be repaired....

It doesn't say to STOP riding, so maybe Honda is taking a different approach? Some of those bikes have been on the rode for a while. Maybe they're taking a GM attitude...just wait to see what happens while they work on the problem.

Re: Looks like Honda brethren got hit by bad ohlins

When I contacted Honda about a sheared lower shock mounting bolt, which my mechanic, also an engineer, said had either been overtightened at the factory or had the threads cut too deep, they wanted to charge me £100 to have the bike inspected at one of their dealers.
I explained that I was trying to save them money in the long term, ie. why not replace the £5 (retail) bolt when bikes appear for service?, they were not interested. Bike was an NT700VA by the way.

Looking through some of the other recalls, Ohlins have issued a STOP RIDING recall for what sounds like the same issue
