2018 Honda Gold Wing
No, it's not another recall with Honda. This time it's with Yamaha. Besides my Wing, I have a 1999 Yamaha Road Star and now Yamaha is recalling all the 1600 Road Stars ever build for a transmission problem. It seems in some cases, that a gear or some other part is wearing not quite right in the transmission and causing a C clip that holds the gears together to fail that in turn can cause the transmission to lock up. The whole engine has to be removed from the bike and the engine cases split to access the transmission. What a pain this is going to be as I have lots of chrome parts and some custom parts that I got to worry about the dealers scratching and putting back together right. Who would have thought that after 8 seasons of riding this bike and now it's being recalled. I have had the worst luck with all of my vehicles and recalls. I have had some sort of recall with every vehicle that I now own.
