Frame Cracks 02/03, how many ?

Hi Guys
How many frame cracks were repaired for early Wings ?
Just bought an 03 Wing Champ Trike and came across this.
That can freek you out.
Was it Wing Frames or Champ parts as well ?

Dennis, new members can't post a link until they have 15 posts.
Part of the new spammer rules. A bit of an annoyance, but worth it because it stopped 98% of the spammers.

wingit2u

go to the Fun Forum, and play with the guys there on the quick and fast stuff, your post count will go up in a hurry.

when it exceeds 15 come back and post us a picture.

My bike is an '02 and never had a frame crack. I know the PO and he said it has been checked a couple of times but never an issue.

I had the plastics off a while back and did not see anything to worry about.

There were some, yes, but not enough to scare me off from buying an '02.

My Buddy has an 04 that's cracked right now.Honda told him to pound salt.They're doing nothing for him.One owner bike with approx 70k miles on it.There was also an 03 earlier this summer in Ottawa that was broken in half.The center of the bike was sitting on the ground.Honda obviously was doing nothing for him as he was almost giving it away as is($3200).There is enough out there that if I had known I would have bought nothing older than 05 with the new frame.

If I\'d have known it would last this long I would have taken better care of it.

It was only 01-02 in the recall and if it's a trike it's your problem anyway.

The frame fix didn`t come along till late `04 models, so I would include '03, and '04 models for possible frame cracking. Wonder how long Honda will cover them.

Anyone got a copy of the recall notice? That would be the best way to settle the frame question.

As far as Wingit2u's problem. As Dave said, it's his problem. Honda won't warranty a modified machine. And I don't blame them a bit for that.

Good question:
Was it a safety recall which goes on forever or an extended warranty with a time limit?

Yep a trike kit could or would put extra stress on the frame which Honda didn't design for.

Advise given here is free and comes with no warranty "Caveat emptor"
