    Anything to look out for?

    I'm toying with getting a CT. I have a niggling feeling that I'd read somewhere that there is a mechanical issue to watch out for with these bikes. Maybe something to do with a recall to do with the drive train??
    I've done a search on here and can't find anything obvious.
    Also, it would be a DCT (probably around model year 2019) so if there is anything specific to these bikes that would be useful too.
    TIA Chris

    Hi Chill59,
    The recall to the drive shaft was talked to death on here. I went smoothly with Honda and no side affects reported after the recall was over. It was only a precaution recall.
    DCT seems bombproof, was remaps talked about, but a 2019 should have the latest maps.
    Otherwise this forum has been quiet of late, probably because the CT is so reliable!
    Best of luck with a new bike
    Tom

    Thanks Tom. What exactly was the problem with the drive shaft (and was it sorted by MY 2019?)
