If you look at the paperwork they sent you, it is good thru 2011. I'm not having any problems so I plan to keep using what I have for a while. Might as well get some use before it gets changed.

Actually I don't know how your dealship is. What is gonna happen? It's a little grabby off the line because of the assist feature. It's not considered a safety issue as far as I know.

It is not the dealership, it is American Honda...
They want the updates done ASAP to prevent the possibilty of it letting go and dong major damage that they would have to cover.....

Got mine done at Wild West in Katy. Had no problems before or after. The old felt ok and so does the new. They fill different from each other, but neither felt bad. The dealship took care of it and was very nice about. I work 12 hour days so a Saturday was the only time they could get me in. I called in advance, so they could get the parts in. They got it in and out in about 4 hours.

Wow! Last time I called them, they said it will take at least 2 days. Maybe, they were booked? but did they happen to drain the oil to do this update?

No, oil change. I did the 600 mile service later. I booked the job with them in advance. I dont know if that helped or not. They told me it would take all dau, but called way early and said bike is ready.

Here is the full meal deal on the clutch update. It contains the service bulletin and the customer letter. Some of the first kits to come out were missing a spacer and caused some slippage after install. Hopefully, Honda has resolved that issue too.

Now that I know that we have until 2012 to get it done, I will get some more life out of this one before taking it in.
