cbr929 recall

I got a 2001 929rr , when my bike had 30.000Km. the clutch "rod" ( the axel that operates the clutch) broke.... I called a Honda dealer who said my bike did not have a recall update and so I could just bring it to the nearest dealer for this to be fixed... So I did, but then they said, and the Honda Norway(kellox)said that the recall of my bike had been done so I had to cost this myself... so I ordered it and changed it myself. But is there anyway to find out if the parts from the recall actually have being changed??? The old rod was hollow, and the new was solid.... and the dealer just said that is the way they make them now...hmmm... And after starting up my old 86VFR I notice my CBR engine has alot of vibration compared to the old bike.... So I think maybe I still have the old clutchbasket which should have been replaced???? Can anyone help?? what can I do?? Honda Norway(kellox) do not want to help at all.. Reagards rc24 from Norway.

Re: cbr929 recall

I would attempt to contact Honda directly to find out exactly what all was included with the recall and what they symptoms were, and what it was that was breaking. Maybe email a US dealer if it also affected them. Most of them will be willing to fill you in on the details.

Re: cbr929 recall

ISTR from on here the recall fitted a whole new clutch - basket, lifter arm (not hollow, so yours is pre refit!!), springs, the lot.

Whoever told you the recall was done appears to have lied to you... Get in touch with Honda, as long as your bike is in the country it was originally imported to, they should be able to check recall work by frame number.

Re: cbr929 recall

If the recall was performed there should be a "punch dot" beside frame bolt above and to the left of the clutch cover. Only certain parts were changed to make the 929 the same as the 954. The actuator rod was the part that failed.

The kit in the link below is the recall kit from Honda. I have one I purchased from this seller to have a spare outer hub. The hub alone from Honda is over $200 so this kit is a great price to have spare parts or for someone rebuilding their clutch. The OEM part# for the recall kit is 22000-MCJ-305. The kit includes: judder seat and spring, first fiber plate, actuator rod, outer hub, washer and lock nut for hub.

@rc24 - If your actuator rod was hollow then the recall has not been performed on your bike. It happened to my friend's 929 about 2 years ago and Honda told him to take it to nearest dealer and it would be fixed at no charge. The dealer wanted him to leave bike and they would fix it in a few weeks. It was summer so he said no thanks and that's why he fixed it himself.

Re: cbr929 recall

Some dealers don't like doing warranty work because they can't charge per hour - Honda will only pay them a flat fee which is usually a little less than the hours actually needed to do the work, plus they don't get the markup on parts.

If the bike isn't braking properly, you don't start by rebuilding the engine.

That's true to a point. I worked at a Honda dealership as a tech and as the Service Manager. We never turned away warranty work. However, your exactly right about the dealer getting the shaft (pun intended) in compensation. Honda's warranty flat rate hours back then (1999) were unobtainable. We as the dealer lost a significant amount of money doing warranty work. There are other dealers out there that will put the screws to the customer to stay in the black. And thats what appears to have happened here. Call your local Honda customer service line and complain. Back in the day that prompted American Honda to call me and ask me what I had done to help the customer. And that always made us look bad. Side note, most of the calls were not legitamate.
I vaguely remember the 929 recall. We did a few, and the punch mark would be the telltale sign, provided the tech actually punched it.
