Please confirm for me that it is highly unlikely that anything other than a blown rear shock is my culprit. It gave up Sunday on a rough part of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Thanks.

it's rather unlikely but a buddy of mine actually had the rear spring break on his 2010. Fought for a month with Honda to have it covered under warranty:wrong:.

If the rear was POGOING, then I would also say the shock gave up. I had that to happen with me on my old 93-1500 that had Progressive on the rear. I almost lost it on a curvy bumpy road. It happened all at once with no warning.

:wrong: wow i am surprised they didn't replace it instantly, was it Honda or the dealer that was reluctant to replace it ? i suspect it was the dealer :thumbup:

Greetings,

Having experienced exactly the same thing, I can confirm that it is the rear shock and most likely simply a blown seal/o-ring.

Oem

Yep. Rear shock. After market by any chance?

The back story is that last winter I purchased and installed a 2008 trike take-off. It appeared new, but possibly the seal had dried out:shrug:. I think that I'm going to re-install the old one while I figure out the next step.
