  1. I think any dealer would do the recall, if that dealer truly didn’t do either of the things they told you they did then I wouldn’t trust them to take it back to them, I would take it to another Honda dealer and have them look at it, if that Honda dealer confirms that the update was not done and such then i would think you could contact Honda about the whole thing.
  2. Ok will do, thank you.
  3. Anyone know a better way to get a hold of Ron hamp? I emailed and tried to call but haven’t been able to get a hold of him, I have a new 16 I am interested in having him do some work on.
  4. Slave cylinder is the same, Magura just forgot to send me the spacer that goes behind the bracket at one end and the longer bolt that goes with it also. Kind of a hokie design I think, not a fan of the spacer thing, thinking about converting everything over to a 2013-2014 setup that mounts the slave cylinder on top of the case, will have to get a different actuation arm also though and possibly a whole new magura set up.
  5. Anyone have a picture of the bracket that fits the 2016? Magura told me all I need to swap from 17 to 16 was the bracket so they sent me one but it does not seem to fit, can’t seem to find much as far as a parts on their web site, so I was wondering if anyone has one they post a picture of so I will know if I got the wrong part or if I’m just not as smart as the parts I’m working with.
  6. I just swapped from a 2017 Honda Magura setup back to a 2016. Talked to the guy at magura about it, everything will swap over except the bracket, they sold me just the bracket for $30 after shipping. I haven’t bolted anything up to confirm it yet, but he assured me all was the same on the 16 to the 17 except the slave bracket, I even have a 2017 bracket if anyone wants one.
  7. Wheels, levers, sprockets, pegs. I just went back to a 16 and have some stuff I took off my 17 that I am selling if you would be interested, red works connection engine plugs, ti yoshimura exhaust, blue cv4 hoses, carbon tank cover, just pm me if interested.
  8. I had JM racing re valve it for me, I have had them doing my stuff for years and have always been very happy w it.
  9. That is what I was considering was the xtrig setup that is adjustable between a 20 and a 22mm offset that way if I didn't like the 20 I could switch it back to the stock 22, just didn't know if i was wasting my money though. Do you think the 20mm offset with a steering stabilizer would be the ticket or not so much?
  10. That is what I was afraid of was just wasting my money and making things worse. I am just looking for a more planted feeling in the front end, and to get it to change direction faster. I like a bike that handles from the front end and right now I feel like to get the bike to actually change direction I have to steer with the rear end and get the bike sliding. I love the motor and love the suspension but just want to get the front end planted so I can initiate turns with the front of the bike again like I could the 13/16 model. I have tried a lot of diff sag numbers and settled somewhere around 104/106, then I started sliding the forks up and down in the clamps, seems like nothing makes it any better/closer to what I am looking for. Have been seriously considering going back to a 16, loved how those bikes handled once I got the set up right, but hate to go back to the air fork issues.
  11. Anyone running a 20mm offset clamp on their 17? Have been considering it to get the bike to corner better but was curious if anyone has tried it.
  12. It is legit, my dealer contacted me about my 15, mine definitely had an issue, it locked up on me over a BIG jump and about killed me.
  13. I think I am making progress with the bike. Still not in love with the handling like I was the last chassis though. I think I have gotten it calmed down and gotten some stability with setting the sag around 106 and the forks 5mm up in the clamps but I still don't have the confidence in the front end like I did the last bike, the front end on this bike just feels really unpredictable, now that I have some stability I think I am going to try to slide the forks up a little to see if that will get the front end to bite a little better and handle a little more sharp like my 15.
  14. Did you drill the holes right in the center of the engine hangers?
  15. When I first got the bike it wasn't turning very well so my intention was to shift the weight of the bike into the front wheel by raising the forks and running less sag to try to get more traction in the front end and get it to turn better, didn't seem to help any and it made it way more unstable, so I tried to leave the forks and run a little more sag to try to calm it down and it didn't seem to help either. I'm not sure on my free sag, I will have to check.
