Today in the mail I received a recall notice from Honda stating that certain 2010 Fury's could have a defect related to emissions regulations. They mention "Breather Tube A" as the questionable rubber tube elbow that may deteriorate and crack. It goes on to relate this possible problem to emiting exhaust emissions into the atmosphere.
Did anyone else get this notice? It states that two updated breather tube A rubber elbows will be installed free of charge from any local dealer. I guess this is important to correct but I was pretty sure when I upgraded with the spike intake, there were new breathers included and maybe this does not apply to some people? Not sure??

:confused::confused:

I posted on this about a month ago. The 2 elbows in the fix go (1) at the pair valve, and (2) on top of the front cyl where the crankcase vent hose comes out.takes about 20 min to do, I have done 4 so far, just did mine last week and got the notice from Honda today.

Got mine today, not too worried about it as GA doesn't do inspections.

this is only a precautionary recall. the parts could dry rott over time. not a real big deal. dave
When he pulled mine off and bent them a little bit, they splayed open with wrinkles (cheap rubber)... this need to be done on all bikes that get this warranty notice.

I was showing those to someone last month, the ones I took off new bikes , 0 miles, looked fine , when I did another bike (and mine last week) with just a few hundred - 2000 miles they just crack wide open. Looked like they were 10 years old.

My Honda dealer called me about a month ago and I took it in to be changed. They were done in about 45 minutes. I got the notice today in the mail. If you are in California and get this notice, be sure to get the certificate. This is not the receipt. You will need it to renew the tags.

sorry kingdave, but in Ca. it is. This state sees it as an emissions problem and will not renew your tags without this work done.

Drive safe.

Got mine today, So it doesn't matter if I don't have any stock exhaust or anything and therefore are probably way out of EPA specs? Our state don't waste time checking crap like this. Mail a check and your new tag sticker arrives in the mail. :)

Unfortunately, I live in CA ( the biggest pain in the ass state on the planet) and have the L&M conversion with a spike. I'm wondering if I have to put everything back to stock, get it fixed and get the CA certificate, then back again to the way it is now? Crazy!

What are they checking on you CA guys? Noise or just some reading of CO2 at your pipe? There has to be a fast fix for a quick reading if it is pipe CO2 I would think. How do custom cars do it out there? I know the whole state can't have Prius's :)

They are NOT checking emissions on motorcycles here YET..!
They are trying to pass legislature to smog check motorcycles.
Cars Required Smog Inspections

The California DMV will mail you a registration renewal notice telling you whether you are required to get your vehicle smogged; it will also tell you if your vehicle requires a smog check at a test-only station. Exceptions include:

* Vehicles made in 1975 or prior

* Diesel-powered vehicles

* Electric vehicles

* Natural gas powered vehicles weighing more than 14,000 pounds

* Hybrids

* Motorcycles:)

* Trailers

Also, if your vehicle is six or less model years old, you are not required to obtain smog certification as long as you pay the annual $24 smog abatement fee.
Cars Six Years Old and Newer

If your vehicle is six years old or newer, you will be charged an annual smog abatement fee when you register your vehicle, rather than being required to provide smog certification.
Exceptions

The six-year-or-newer rule doesn't apply to nonresident and custom-built cars made since 1976. Those vehicles require smog certification. If you have a custom or specially constructed car, however, you might need a different type of smog certification.

If your vehicle DOES NOT fall under one of the above categories AND you must take the vehicle for a smog inspection every other renewal period

NO, the dealer will just fill out an additional form and provide you with a copy, doing the fix will not change your emissions, not doing it MAY, down the line, cause the crankcase venting and/or PAIR system to malfunction.

So it's safe to assume, since I removed the pair valve stuff, that I'm down to only 1 elbow to check/replace?
