How long is the warranty as I have less than two weeks before my first year is up on the 26th July

Maybe I should send it anyway for the annual/12000km service but it only has just short of 10000km on it?

The best would be to discuss your concerns with your dealer, always good  that al parties knows where they stand with each other.
I personally think that this whole thing is completely blown out of proportion.(precisely what social media does)

Have the answer, the warranty is two years

Although that is the DCT, the normal ABS should be the same

The service book will state 12 000km or 12 months whichever comes first , get the service booked now even if it is too early as far as km are concerned and have peace of mind that if there are any problems you have completed your side of the agreement .

I appreciate it may have been blown out of proportion but I also have small niggles like the squeaking in the front which appears to come from the steering bearings which `I notice when I push the bike while the engine is off.

Now if I add my niggles to the rusty spoke issues reported and fork tubes I was concerned that the bike she be given the once over by an expert eye at the dealer.  After all Honda would re-imburse them for any work needing to be done

Correct , if you have niggles they should be addressed , if not then you have recourse to Honda SA , my advice to you is to email the dealer a list of 'problems' that concern you , and insist that they reply to your email , that way you have proof of complaint .

Interesting video...

My AT is doing the exact same and leaking same side. It is on 33000km

I am the second owner... First owner never even did gravel. To old. Only used for touring...

I did probably 200km on gravel...nothing technical.

Awesome bike still...just very disappointed.

What would these cost to fix less or more?

Mine had a leak way worse than that after some muddy riding and it just took a clean with the "special hook tool" to sort it...then put some fork socks on and I've had no issues since

Thanks! Did you refill the lost or leaked oil as well? How many km trouble free now?

I had the shock oil checked and "topped up" when I took it in for a service. I'm no expert on shocks but the dealership reckoned just empty and replace the oil both sides instead of trying to muck about figuring levels so that's what I had them do.
That was at around 8 thousand kays and I'm at 23 thou now with no issue.
Still carry the plastic hook made from a coke bottle in my tools for just in case

Just Bought a twin with 20k km on which was used as a offroad touring bike.  I am a big guy and the standard suspension is sss.... lets just say not adequate for my weight and riding style. I took the shock and forks off and went to Martin Peatzold. He worked his magic and it is night and day difference. He inspected my forks and found no issues what so ever. The standard fork seals was not even worn out but had new honda seals fitted anyway. Fitted Fork socks so i know i will have no issues. Really one of the best upgrades in my opinion.

Thanks! I can feel my suspension has been adjusted..cause it is not soft and bouncy. Its setup well enough for my weight and style of riding.. I order socks and still have to replace seals soon... I also cleaned with "special hook tool" as (mentioned in this thread) and no leaks so far... It surely reassuring to hear your seals were fine...as I am sure mine is in good condition...thanks again
