    This is difficult for “us” to diagnose sitting in front of a computer. You can visually inspect the front axle and see if all the parts are in place. Also, with the front wheel lifted, try to wiggle...

    Inspect the installer’s work on both front and rear wheels. Inspect the front axle to ensure the spacers were put back in the correct places on the axle. But if that were a problem, I’d expect front...

    Actually, I like the idea of the bottoms being a little loose. If any water got inside the boots, it could drain.

    Maybe the quick turn-in is a Shinko brand characteristic. I found that a new Shinko Raven street tire does the same thing and takes 500 miles of riding to get accustomed to or for the tire to return...

    The other motorcycle manufacturers may be taking a wait and see posture to see if automatic transmissions boost Honda’s sales in those categories. If so, I’d expect them to not necessarily use DCT,...

    Isn't it the same thing in a torque converter/planetary gear automobile transmission? If you put the “PRNDL” in “1”, it will hold 1st until it hits the rev limiter. If you then select “2” it will...

    If you already did an oil, filter, and coolant change, and the valve check is not due, are you sure you even want to take it to the dealer now? It’s not necessary to maintain your warranty. They...

    There is little doubt that filter is past due for replacement. But here is my skeptical thought. It looks very dirty, but how can we really know how much air it will flow? Like engine oil, perhaps...

    That’s unfortunate; I hope the rider is OK. I can totally see how this can happen. On my Alaska trip, the bear were nearly as common along the road as deer might be in other places. The bears do...

    I’m sure it does. Honda marketing is probably very selective about their wording. For example, if “scooter” carries a stigma amongst the target audience for the machine, they have to be careful to...

    Honda calls it an automatic transmission. Honda designed, built, and marketed the bike so I think they can call it an automatic if they want.

    I suppose you could expect some power loss being that you’re a mile+ above sea level. You’ll just have to ride it and see if it meets your needs.
