You would think that there would be a recall on that. Or is there one an I'm not awheir of it?

Yeah, I'm really surprised somebody hasn't gotten hurt bad. Looks like a law suit just waiting to happen. I'm just glad that I read about it here first so I could get the fix before it broke.

The letter to Honda probably won't do much, but definitely send it. Anybody who has this problem needs to report it to both the NHTSA and the CPSC. Please file a complaint to both these government agencies to hold Honda accountable. Then get kritter's fix and you'll be set for life.

Here's the link to file your complaints online to the NHTSA...

Here's the phone number and link to the CPSC: 1-800-638-2772

I wonder what effect it would have, to do a Search in here regarding the footpeg problem, and print off a selection of the posts, ... taking those comments to a class-action ambulance-chaser for action against Honda ? (see, I've lived in CA just long enough to get sue-happy, too ) :banghead:

There have been complaints about for several years on TT.

Honda knows all about it. Their race bikes have the 'fix'.

Look here: and you will see another source for the fix...

I know of two injuries from breaking footpegs. My impression is that about 1/3rd of the bikes eventually break. Would be an interesting poll.

I dont think Honda will do anything--they never admitted to the valve fiasco on the X bike. And for 6 years they have made our bike with a potentially dangerous issue.

If it was a KTM or Husqvarna or even Yamaha it would have been fixed immediatley--and the magazines would jump all over it....but Honda is somehow above the rules of the game.... :banghead:
