And what did we get: the right innerleg was completed scratched at
the lower end (hard-cromium!!!!) He wanted to replace the complete right fork, but Honda told him only to replace the innerleg, and so he did.
Nor Honda nor my dealer had ever seen that kind of damage. (they say)
The reason for not replacing the complete right fork had, so I heard, had
everything to do with money.

Well done Honda  :047:  :047:  :047:

Episode 7:
Yesterday I went back to my dealer because It's getting worser with my frontfork.
He contacted Honda once again, and this time they decided to replace the complete right leg.
Come and read more next week and hear my other frontleg saying:
Why not me, why not replacing me too??? :012:

Episode eight. Everything is Oke.
What happened?
My local dealer replaced the complete right front leg, but the problem remained.
...And what was the next thing he did!!!!!!! He removed the complete
front fork (without any clicks) of a brand new bike in his store and mounted it on my bike. That's Service with a big "S" :015:
And still there was that terrible 'Click'. He removed the brakes......CLICK.
And at last he replaced the old head-bearings with new ones, though
there was nothing wrong with the old ones.....
That terrible 'click' was gone.
While placing the bike against a wall with the front wheel, there was
nothing to hear nor to feel in the bearings.
So at the end, I'm happy with Honda (again)
So, if you guys ever come to Belgium, near Hasselt, drop by and say hello to Honda Center Vanrusselt http://www.hcv.be/
where they still know what service means.

See ya. :031:

Seems that you need the 1/4 of a bike till the problem solved. Well done to your dealer.

Sorry to dig this, same issue dealer stating it's normal. What bearings were replaced head bearings or wheel bearings?

After reading the thread, seems they replaced the head stem bearings. An awful lot of work by the Belgian dealer to diagnose head stem bearing problem. That sort of clicking is a typical indicator of worn head stem bearings. On some Honda models the C spanner supplied with the bike to adjust the rear suspension also fits the large nut under the top triple clamp. This nut puts the correct pre-load on the head stem bearing. Not sure if this is how it works on the CBF though.
