Apachesmith, I got my '16 AT about the same time as you got your '17. I thought I was getting a '17....(I got duped). When I checked the Vin I saw it was built in 10/16 and is registered as a '16.

Does your vin indicate '16 or '17??

I'll check how do you confirm 16 or 17 bike from the VIN?

There should be a tag on the front of the frame (look between the forks). The upper right hand corner of the tag will be the date it was built, (the date on mine is 10/16.

The bottom of the tag should show the model year. Mine reads:
CRF1000D Model 2016 Motorcycle

My receipts and insurance card show it as a 2016 Model.

I don't have that tag. On my finance paperwork it says 2017 CRF1000L Africa Twin - I'll see if there are any further stickers in the bike that gives a specific year indication and let you know!

Look at the 10th digit on your VIN a 2017 model year will be "H" a 2016 will be "G"

Yep mine is a H - Honda confirmed to me that the two bikes we picked up in November for our Africa trip were the first two MY17 bikes registered in the U.K.

Wheels and spokes still crap... Honda are supposed to be dealing with it - will see what they do!

Not heard of the spoke issues here in NZ, though my Tiger front spokes appear 'pitted', on one side presumably from gravel road riding!!!
