I have a friendly Honda store nearby. I was talking to the service manager about this today and he said he hasn’t heard of this. I think most people that bought one aren’t serious riders and the majority of these Groms are sitting in garages with low miles. I’m thinking about purchasing the 5 year extension warranty. Mine expires next month. It would buy me piece of mind. I shouldn’t have to but I do like the bike enough to keep it and I can cancel it anytime and get a prorated refund if the issue is ever identified and an easy fix. This wasn’t what I expected when I bought a Honda.
