I'm guessing why Honda dealers or dealers in general won't work on older cycles. 1. Lack of knowledge. 2. Parts are sometimes a pain to find or are not made anymore.3. Liability, I would think that this is more than likely the main reason for a dealer not to deal with an older bike, I have to wonder if their Insurance companyhas to do with anything...Peopleare killed on cycles and if someone blamesa shop for the accident, that could be areason, or maybe not.. I know this, there are a lot of dealers that will not work on my 81, this site has been a blessing for me, I have solved a lot of my problems myself thanks to imformation on this site...
