    received a letter today from Honda about a recall over the petrol cap , but when I rang the local dealer he didn't have a clue and said theres no recalls on for the bikes , he said I will contact Honda , but did any other owners get a letter ?

    Just as an aside....how can a dealer not have a clue about recalls or stop sales?!?
    Surely any company is going to inform the dealers! Or do they just go automatically into deny anything mode :rolleyes:

    Yep, I received a letter too. When I check my VIN on the Honda website it says there are no recalls though.

    A possible gap in the seal of the filler caps I read which could allow water to enter the tank. This Blade has been a disaster for Honda. Is this another one though?

    No mention of it on Honda UK's dealer system at the moment to be fair to the dealer in question.

    It'll give them an excuse to look at the dodgy throttle response

    Hmm ..... I think the dodgy throttle response will get the same dodgy response as the dodgy ABS :rolleyes:

    I think you need to read the ABS thread when you've got a few days to spare. But to save you the hassle, the big H just deny everything. No problems with ABS and the throttle response only affects the race bikes. I have experienced both issues first hand.
