Time to call Corporate customer service and ask what the deal is?!
Honda corp expects perfect 10s on customer satisfaction surveys, anything less is a failing grade
With the slow economy and shops needing every dollar,,,plus recall work pays less to the dealer than regular customer rate...
they appear to be hosing the consumer with this extra charge
Sure IF all the panels were in place..but the bike is naked in the needed areas!
AND Honda provides for plenty of fluid, once a bottle is open it must be used immediately--It was charged for that bike,
should go in it- not the next bike...
Surely there is some leftover for the other areas~
That, or get a $5 1-man bleeder at harbor freight or parts store and a qt of DOT4 fluid
Working on your bike can give a great feeling of satisfaction, and you can do a 200 mile burger run with the 100 dollars you saved!
But seriously- DO CALL CORP!!
I am assuming the riders with issues have already spoken directly with the SERVICE MANAGER, that is who corp will tun around and call after your complaint of overcharging
Is the towing issue covered in the recall notice (Im not on an 1800 so didnt read it)
