New on here, not too sure how it works.
Im trying to see if anyone has ever had the same issue I've had. 4th kick of my bike the kick-start got stuck down and then stuck up after I lifted it up. Have found out the crankcasing has cracked either side of the kick-start spindle / shift that's in the engine. Bikes only 14 hours old ?. Here's a photo.

What was the deal with Honda taking some of their 17s back ? Maybe it was something else but honestly that sucks man i hope Honda takes care of you.

did you contact your dealer? Not sure Vital can solve your problem. On another note, my Subaru is sputtering at half throttle, anyone know what to do? In all seriousness, my response is just as lame as your question. If I bought a new car and had an issue, I would ask the dealer. why would you go on a public forum? Maybe to stir the pot?

There were several early on, blamed on some kind of timing issue perhaps causing a backfire. Honda should hook you up, it is a known issue that should have been corrected by the dealer before you got the bike. There's a thread here somewhere.

This came up a long time ago and some people mentioned it was a pre-production issue, apparently not. Sorry about the bad luck, but contact dealer!
