1200 stator.. recall/ fix ..markings

Postby RBGERSON » Fri Jan 13, 2012 10:36 am



I have a chance to look at a 85 1200. I am a 1000, 1100 guy so I have limited knowledge on the 12's. Anyway I remember there has been an issue with the stators on the 12's and that when fixed by the dealer they marked the bikes..an "X"??? someplace is that correct and if so where??? Second if it has not been fixed is Honda still honoring that warranty/recall fix?

I am going to see the bike in two hours so time is short to get an answer.
