Just a quick follow up. 

It's been 3k miles since I replaced two spokes and re-torqued all the remaining spokes.    Everything's working fine, no additional loose or broken spokes.

In the end, it cost me only $2.21 each for the spoke/nut assemblies.   And I bought 3 spares of each of the two part numbers just in case... 

Most expensive part was to pay the dealer $80 to analyse the problem on a 14 month old bike.   I could probably write Honda a letter and they would do something for me...  but I haven't done that.   

I'll write it off as a fluke.   I've bought many new Honda's over the years, and can't think of a problem with any of them.   In comparison, my Tuono V4 had two recalls, a warranty replacement of the stator, and I had to pay for a couple of repairs they called "wear items' (6 valves out of spec at 9k miles loud enough to think it was bad cams).   

Plus, this new CB1000R is really catching my eye...   not to replace the VFR1200x mind you, but it maybe a suitable replacement for the Tuono...
