Checked my bike again for pitting on the spokes and found the rear wheel is good, but the front wheel is not quite so good. So not only does it look like the problem varies from bike to bike, it also appears it varies from wheel to wheel. Weird!

During the 12k service I also made complaints about pitting on the spokes.

My dealer made up a warranty claim and normally at the end of the summer when it's more quiet at my dealers the spokes will be replaced.

In Belgium only people who complain get a warranty claim.
Honda will not replace the spokes unless you ask.

The dealer says so. Let's hope for it.
I saw an official paper from Honda stating that Honda is giving the dealer 7.75h to change the spokes on both front and rear wheel.

Will every dealer have the "competence" to replace and adjust the spokes correctly ?

In Germany most of the dealers, not to say all of them, have a associated garage.
Therefore they have no problems with.
