Upon arrival in the sierras. I trailered talon without incident on an open car trailer with beautiful 75 dog weather. It started at sea level no problem, dealer salesman drove it up onto trailer. I tried starting it as instructed by manual and dealers recommended procedure. It wanted to start just wouldn’t fire. I jumped it thinking not enough cranking volts. Nothing still I’m at 8000 ft elevation. I have other motorcycles, generators , cars, boats. Never had issues. It stayed in trailer down to Bishop 4500ft, maybe vapor lock?... still nothing. Finally I pumped the pedal a couple of times after numerous attempts at starting, clearing etc. and it fired up. It ran rough wanting to die. I just feathered it with rpms trying to warm it up while watching gauge. It wasn’t being a Honda. Then a horrific sound along with parts dancing across pavement left a hole under rear cylinder and top of case the size of a baseball. I never put it in gear never rolled off trailer. Disbelief this could happen. I’m sure the dealer thought operator error, a rare occurrence etc. anyway. I’m not giving up on Honda but I bought s new machine I don’t want this repaired, I’m asking for new talon, or money back. Maybe some accessories for the inconveniences.
