Had the bike in for the 600 mile valve check - within spec -no adjustments made. It rattled before the service and it's still rattling after the service. After the valve check I was able to demonstrate the noise to the dealer right there in his service bay, standing still, in neutral, revving to 5,00rpm. They acknowledged that the noise was there but had no explanation for it. They didn't say so outright but inferred that we'll have to wait for the noise to get much worse or for more people to complain about it before Honda will act on it. Their apparent reluctance to go looking for the cause indicates to me that local dealers can't get Honda to cover, under warranty, any diagnostic time they spend looking for the noise. We'll have to wait for Honda to find the problem and hopefully we'll see a "TSB" which will allow local dealers to fix the problem under warranty.
