I dealt with Honda at the dealership level for over 30 years. I can tell you that you have 'a snowballs chance in hell' of getting them to fund or accept your new invention… whatever it is. They, like many large companies, abide by the 'not from us- don't use it' adage.

Years ago they copied the Vetter fairing design to mount on the GL1100 Interstate. Made of ABS plastic… like Vetters fairings. Seemed that Craig Vetter didn't patent the design or the material. Oops.

I agree that the aftermarket is the best way to go but get the patent first…. or someone might copy it!!
