Does anyone have any info on the intake bolt recall?
I ran my vin and my 2021 Talon 1000x LV is included, Talking with my dealer's service department (2-3-22) and they said the recall just came out Monday. They must inspect the machine and if it is defective, not to ride the machine until the part is fixed. They cannot order the part until it is inspected. No idea of turn-a-round time.
It sounds like to me you are talking about the clamps that are at the engine and not the clamps that hold the intake air horns in place. You can see the two horns by looking into intake with airbox lid off. If the recall camps come apart they can fall into the intake and damage the engine, but I don't think it can suck dirt in that location.They are the bands around the funnels where they come down from the airbox, and connect to the throttle body. Mine came loose and the engine vibration separated one, and it sucked dirt. My engine is completely ruined and has been sitting at the dealership for 4 long months now. I am off warranty, so initially Honda refused to cover it (and pretended to not have any idea what we were talking about), but now I don't see how they can refuse!
If you look at the later vintage 2021 Talons out on the dealers floor, the bands are completely different from the older ones. They knew they had a problem way back when and fixed it at the factory, but now they have to take care of the ones that went out with the older, wimpy bands.
