Attached a picture curtesy of Honda. Can see why they are reframing it now though not a pretty sight.

Had a decent conversation with them the other night and it transpires that now the bike which is a grey import is registered on the Honda UK computer system all the outstanding Service Bulletins can be carried out free of charge.

It is a yellow 2003 GL1800 (grey import) and yes it is within the range of vin numbers. Should reiterate what Honda said and that is it is the only one in the UK that has been found up to now and was within the number range.

How did you catch this. Did you have a problem or was this found in a normal inspection?:baffled:

I have been chasing Honda UK about the recall issued in the USA since it was first published and it has taken me all this time to get the bike booked in. It was not picked up by the dealer when it was serviced a couple of weeks before it went in for the checks. To be honest it hasnt felt right for a month or so and I put it down to the back tire (got a 2.5 mil of tread left) and didnt think anything else about it. They collected it 2 weeks ago today and rang me the following Friday to tell me it was cracked.

Hopefully I will get it back on the 15th of August. The new frame is on its way and should be here next Monday.

Would you happen to know which vin number bikes are being recalled. Wife's cousin has a 03 1800. Wonder if he has a problem. Thanks.

Phil,
For us non 1800 owners, is this view looking up from the ground at the rear swing arm?
Is this where all 1800s break?
Does this have anything to do with the single sided swing arm?
How is Honda correcting this problem?

Hey GLester :waving: When i bought this old lady of mine away back in the sixties she was recalled for overheating, :whip: then she was recalled the following year for a fault in the lighting system, :crying:then she was recalled two years later for a fault in the brakes, :bash: then she was recalled about ten years ago for a carb problem, :doh:Now im waiting for a recall in the frame. :bash2:But she is still the best wee Honda 50 on the road. :clapper:

Cracks found on helicopter
This stuff scares me. Where is the quality control for these things?
Cracks Found On Military Helicopter Blades. This image is of cracks
found during routine inspections of the Kaman
Aerospace SH-2 Seasprite helicopter. Pilots and crew of these
helicopters were seriously alarmed (and rightly so) when this
information was released. They were especially concerned because the
cracks weren't found in just one location - they were all over the
craft. There was no real uniformity to it.

Nice picture of a plumber on vacation. Or is that the waxing moon? You really surprised the guy, caught him with his pants down. I thought crack was an urban problem. Can't imagine trying to smoke that thing in a pipe.

I hope the moquitos do their duty in revenge for me having to see such a sight:whip:
