After 22K absolutely trouble-free miles, my 2009 SWing is laid up due to failure of the rear wheel. Seems the splines on the driveshaft (rear axle) have stopped playing nice with those inside the (ridiculously expensive) rear wheel.
So I managed to get it to the dealer I purchased it from and had the service manager take a look. His response? "Man, I've never seen anything like this. Let me get it up on the lift and check it out." A call to American Honda yielded a response of "this shouldn't have happened -- send us some photos." Which he did. Long story short, what could've been an out-of-warranty bill of over $1100 is turning into a labor-paid bill of just $184, for all-new clutch parts. Honda is picking up the tab for everything else. They say the clutch is a normal wear-and-tear item, to which I can't disagree.
This is why I buy Hondas...
Meanwhile, I'm riding the Elite everywhere. It's much more enjoyable with the Honda windshield fitted. I've done nearly 1500 miles in 10 weeks, and that's over and above what I did on the SWing and with my Civic during that time. Not John Grinsel mileage, but not bad for a 110.
