  • Pin Lock Video 2018

    Some might find this video interesting on the 2018 Tie Rod issue. Also good info on manufacturing a pin to lock the steering.

    Now THAT video I do find very interesting. It would appear that there is a lot of inconsistency in suspension components coming out of Honda on the 2018 model. Perhaps that is why I did not notice the "slop" that Max referred to in one of his earlier videos. Maybe I got one with only 2 or 3 mm of travel.

    Any comments about Max taking his bike back to the dealer for warranty repair should be taken with more than a grain of salt. Max makes a good point. If Honda could not get the tolerances correct out of the factory, the odds of a dealer making an acceptable repair are slim to none.

    I am fortunate to be pleased with my 2018 suspension, but I only have 500 miles on it. I have no idea how the suspension will perform with 10,000 or 30,000 miles on the bike. Also, I have not examined the bumper on my front shock. I assume Max knows what he is talking about. He has forgotten more about suspension than I will ever know.

    I was skeptical when I first watched some of Max's early videos on the 2018 suspension, but now that I have seen how cheap Honda went with the 2018 GPS, I am beginning to wonder where else they have cut corners. Also, I know the quality control is weak at Honda, with the flaws in my 2018 paint job. So, I can see where a 2018 could get out the door with defective suspension components.

      Chris, Did they order your new Plastic pieces for you yet? About your GPS, I read that Honda will refresh (I think that is what I read) the GPS unit something like 10 times free??? I read that on some site,so I can't be sure of that. That might be the maps only vs the GPS software I don't know.

        I know that Honda claims to provide free map updates for 10 years, is that what you may have read?

            Good question. The date on my maps is 3rd Qtr 2017.

            BUT, I don't think the maps are accurate, up-to-date, or have the granularity/accuracy of the Garmin maps. Of course, I can't confirm any of this.
