Gearwrench makes an adjustable pivoting head wrench that is quite similar in design to the custom fab job. I love the ingenuity generated by necessity.

Just an update for those living with a similar harmonic vibration. It turns out that the alternator drive gear set was the culprit. Honda knows a percentage of engines left the plant with...

I just went through this very same scenario. Tried three times by the book and gave up. Ran wires into the trunk under the carpet for future shorting purposes. Taking that seat off is a PITA....

That could have turned into a fire. I would just solder it with some heat shrink tubing. If all the other connections in the plug are good then just repair the one lead. Tough to see just how much...

So it would seem they are working for us. Yes, they are working on our vehicle. Dealers repair what Honda and the tech rep approves. Honda has reined in their warranty repair costs. They even took...

Is there a chance that the debris fell from the exterior crankcase area when removing the filter and drain plug? I don't know what Honda uses for clutch material so it could be clutch. Carbon...

We are a little off track here. The ranting seems to be over. This camera is about the best option I have seen to date. Less than a GoPro and easier to use. I am also thinking front and rear views....

It's just a stinking Harley, who cares? :laugh: I would drop a project like that on the dealers lap after riding season. Things so often don't go as planned. I feel for you. We lose some of the joy...

While true the exhaust and crankcase/oil pan are major contributors to engine cooling it is the thermostat that regulates engine temp. I would think common sense says the synthetic is not absorbing...

That is unless you have them do a warranty repair that requires engine removal. I wonder how you would feel if they scratched up your 2012 near mint bike. They more often don't know or, worse, don't...
