I'm with bigfish on this.
Plus I don't really trust my dealership's mechanics to put the engine back correctly. You gotta have someone you trust with your life doing that kind of work.
Yep, just go with the flow or the speed you're comfortable with.

I agree with you guys, but I am hoping honda will step up and cover some part of it. If they don't then I will be One with the flow.

LOL I wish 600 was the price to fix it. And the long time it took to get it back sucked. Sorry this happened but wait till the starter goes out after that gets replaced. I wish sometimes that manufacturers were whipped for stupid electronic crap screwing up your riding season.

The engineers are told what to do by management. So many times that is why we consumers suffer the way we do. A big reason for "screw ups" is because of management mandates of making products cheaper.

I have this problem right now. Vs dead and need to pull engine to replace. Anyone know if you can reach it another way? From the back? Maybe pulling swing arm.

I guess the alternative might be to drill another hole and just install the vs somewhere else

Default Speed Sensor Replacement

Well yes there certainly is another method versus engine removal!! I have sectioned out a piece of the cross support bracket and have designed a bolt in replacement! I'll be goddamed if I am gonna pull a motor to replace a sensor!!

Got any pics? Sounds like a good thing to do when the VS takes a crap.
