I am running 30X10X15 no spacers I'm curious as to what hondabob is doing also. Called the dealer today to see if warranty is going to cover the cost no big deal, it would be nice, but they haven't even called Honda yet. If it's not covered and they don't have time I can get a buddy over and we can get it done, missing some good spring riding.

My riding area is mostly desert and forest. No deep water or mud and I don't use a pressure washer. My wheel bearings are like new with 13,600 miles.

It's been 3 weeks my R has been in the shop to replace the rear wheel bearings it took 10 days for them to order the bearings. I called Honda warranty to see if this could be a warranty issue no returned call. No big deal understand if its not but I would like my call returned. Dealer said they haven't had the time to call yet, I understand this is the end of the world but I would like to ride one last time. Is this poor service or am I expecting to much?

I had mine in for over a month. I thought it had a bad right rear axle, when the dealer rook it apart, it had a wheel bering that had been beat on with a punch. It took for ever to get the bering and Honda to approve the warranty. I finally got it back and the damn thing makes more racket than before. It still has a bad axle or a problem. Unfortunately, it is now out of warranty.

Since that problem was 'on paper' when the warranty was in effect, it's still under warranty, as far as I know.

Sounds like I wouldn’t be doing business with this dealership

Got my Talon back today I accepted a apology for how long it took to do the repairs. Honda's warranty covered the cost of repairs. The mechanic showed me my wore out bearings and explained to me that greasing sealed bearings does no good, basically said my grease tool is worthless to try and keep it out of deep water and don't use a pressure washer. Thanks Honda for covering the work!
