I was just updated that some Hondaline accessories are now off the backorder list, and are now available for the 6th gens ... trunk rack, brake light, harness and trunk interior light.
Believe it is the output shaft bearing which requires a complete motor disassemble. Yamaha said ride it until it has a catastrophic failure. I didnt like their answer and I am not riding a bike I can't trust.Well congrats Rob, you've put on some miles, I'm thinking you and Paige took it on vacation. So what's up with the Yamaha, sounds serious.
