Bike was sorted under warranty. Turns out the swing arm collapsed due to incorrect assembly in factory, which in turn cracked clutch cover.

Bike was sold here on the forum

Surely a wet sump engine must always have oil in the sight glass. It should actually have more when cold as opposed to hot as all the oil drains down into the sump ?

Correct - except when the oil is fooken thick & old, then it will not flow too well, hence the glaasie reads 'too low' when you pull it vertical.
You run 80W90 or what, or you do renew the oil every 10,000 Km's?
Fwiw, mine always shows oil, hot or cold.

With bikes I have owned I have always read the oil once the bike to be warmed up. Park it and let it stand for about 10 minutes. Then right it and check oil in the sight glass - this ensures the oils is viscous and will drain from oil cooler etc and be able to be read. One may have ones own way (and may prefer cold) but it needs to be consistent.

Did speak to Honda Wing in Bloem a week ago. Mentioned I was second owner and asked about recall/replacement for the seat issue under warranty.

They took my details and placed me on the list for replacement.

What is the "seat issue`"?

Did they replace seat or just cover?

Not sure to be honest. Bike was sold while at dealer for warranty claim. I know that a few guys received new seats. Others only got new, improved stickers.
