Mine started acting similarly about the time it turned 4,000 miles.  Still doing it at 5,000.  The gauge hangs at 3 bars for way too long, then begins flashing 1 bar.  Sometimes will show 2 bars for a few miles, then start flashing 1.  I watch the mileage more than the gauge, so it's a minor niggle and not a real issue for me.

Can anyone inform me as to where the chassis number and engine number is on a Honda Crosstourer?

Factory manual for the 2016 model says:
"The Vehicle Identification Number is stamped on the right side of the steering head."

"The engine serial number is stamped on the right side of the lower crankcase."
Diagram shows it just above and slightly forward of the right footpeg.
You'll need to remove the plastic heat guard there to read the number (look for the fastener underneath).

My fuel gauge has been wonky since I first posted.  It seems moody.  like a sticky float.  As for the battery I have trickle charger wiring but I consistently go through a battery every 2 years.  Pretty much every bike I've ever owned has.  Be it because I lived somewhere cold or like here hot.

I thought it was good value for the money.  I would have preferred to replace it, but reasonably on a "new" bike I need to budget.  Plus I'm not sure I will ever get the equivalent to the Ohlins I had on the GS.  So I am happy with "better".

I found the hyperpro spring helped immensely on the shock as well.  not perfect but reasonable cost.  I talked to (drawing a blank on the name) but he said that it would be a good improvement till the stock shock was worn out.  Seems like a reasonable value and improvement.

Good advice!
I just need to not bottom or feel like it's bottoming and if it can make at least 50% of the difference the front springs did I'll be okay with the cost.

I saw this bike announced on Bike exif and thought it looked good. I had considered a Crossrunner but would miss DCT . I don’t ride Offroad , have not intention of doing so, therefore a road biased AT with DCT would make sense for me and although I like the go of my V4 most of the time 100bhp is plenty. The only disappointment is the lack of shaft drive. My last 4 main bikes have all been shafties.

Hello, I'm Scuba007. I live near Heathrow and own a 2015 model year (reg 66)  Highlander DCT. I have tried to upload pictures but don't know if it worked!!! I have owned the bike since new and toured France, Spain (Picos) and Wales clocking up over 16,000 miles. I have fitted many accessories, some good, some not so so could probably point someone in the right direction. Would love to find like minded (mature) owners for ride outs when this pandemic has run it's course!
