Thanks! I’m hoping my dealer is going to come through too, but so far they don’t seem nearly as anxious to get it taken care of by this weekend as I am! I Love writing product reviews, both good and bad. The review I write on this dealership is already teetering and their response to this issue could determine which side of the fence the review lands on.
if all else fails call Justin at western Honda in AZ. They might help you with grommets at least. They are the best dealer in AZ 480-994-8400. Sorry that Ridenow is not stepping up. I have had issues with them as well.

I’m in Cincinnati as well. Took delivery of my R. This week and a hood groomer was missing, dealer didn’t have them in stock so he took one of an X on the lot and gave it to me. Not all dealers are bad!!!

My throttle smoothed out after the first break in service, it was more sensitive than my pioneer, but I was also sort of used to it owning a pioneer for the last 3 years. I did cut a flat section into some solid round aluminum stock, 1” in diameter. Than drilled and screwed it to the floor board as a place to anchor my heel to the floor. It definitely helped when running the rig really hard and fast in low range. It stoped my foot from bouncing off the floor when I hit bumps. I’ll try to post pics

Mind asking where you purchased your unit from?

My dealer just took one gromet off one of their other talons since I was missing the right front gromet. The rear grommets are the most important.

so I live in WA and took delivery of a new 2019 Talon 1000X in Blue purchased from RideNow in Chandler AZ. Even though I’ve not yet gotten the chance to drive it except for up and down the street a few times. I’m thrilled with the Talon, however I’ve already found a missing hood mount grommet and one of the tail light mount grommets missing which allowed the tail light to flop around and most likely would fall out with much aggressive riding. I have a 3 day ride planned for this weekend and had to go to the hardware stores and search for something that would work to keep the hood from rattling and the tail light from falling out. Not very happy. I called RideNow and spoke to the salesman who has to run the idea of sending me $2.00 worth of grommets all the way up the management chain. Pretty much blows me away as if I was trying to con them out of two rubber grommets when I just bought a $20,000 machine from them site unseen!
I haven’t even mentioned the spider that was stowed away in the Talon that bit me on the arm and has my arm swollen to the point they put me on antibiotics!! lol

Beyond those things, the overly sensitive throttle tip-in Is a real deal and will take a learning curve to drive smoothly. First test fit into the toy-hauler was a nerve racking event with spinning wheels on the ramp and white knuckles on the wheel!

Hopefully whoever forgot to install the grommets wasn’t in charge of installing anything more critical!!
The Chandler shop of that franchise is notoriously bad. I doubt you will get any satisfaction.

500,
Talon X
THE PIONEER 500 THROTTLEMAX WORKS PERFECTLY ON THE TALON ! I PULLED MINE OFF THE P5 AND PUT IT ON ! A FRIEND ORDERED A P5 ONE IN RED TO MATCH HER TALON .
LOCAL DEALER (STAR ISLAND MOTOR SPORTS) GOES OVER THEM . A FRIEND PICKED UP HIS 202O LAST WEEK AND THE HOOD HAD A BLEMISH AND THE STEERING WHEEL CENTER WAS MISSING . WHEN HE ARRIVED TO PICK IT UP THEY INFORMED HIM AND TOLD HIM THEY HAD ALREADY ORDERED THEM FROM HONDA . I WOULD RAISE HELL WITH RIDE NOW .
REALLY , I WOULD CALL EVERYDAY AND IF YOU DONT GET HELP CALL THE HONDA HELP LINE .
I ALSO HAVE ANOTHER FRIEND WHO PUT A T H I C K PEACE OF FOAM RUBBER UNDER HER GAS PEDAL AND THAT SOLVED THE PROBLEM FOR FREE AS SHE ALREADY HAD THE FOAM SHE FOUND OUT ON A TRAIL .
