    Thought some of you may want to know Honda has a service bulletin out on the HRC216K2 models to fix the bag plate that bends and breaks.

    Service Bulletin #72 Part# 81352-vk6-010

    I think it retails about $30 but im not sure, I'll find out when they get in on Friday.

    Hope this helps.

    appreciate the info, the dealer thought I was the only one that was breaking them.

    The 05 models we bought, all of them had one of the tabs break off. Our dealer just reinforced and welded the tabs back on.

    Sounds like a good dealer, half of mine for 05 broke off as well as half of the 06, under warranty just put new ones on for us.

    We had trouble with the tabs bending down on our Hondas too. I fixed them myself with the mig welder. I welded up the back side of the tabs last year and have had no problems since.
    We are still waiting for a factory fix for the tires rolling off the rims though.

    No info yet on the tire issue. But once I find out I will post it up.

    The Honda Tech. said they just released the bag mount a couple hours before I called.
