I wouldn't be a happy camper either if I was getting the run around from Honda. Hope your bike is sorted and it stays problem-free from now.
cheers

fingers crossed 28 out of 30 starts okay so far

nothing it just fired up and stopped in about 2 secs

but I've never had a bike that fired up first time for the total time I've owned it

but something is amiss no doubt

Mine is doing the exact same thing on every start,hot or cold it doesnt matter.
Will fire up and die inside 2 seconds. Have tried to isolate the problem, thinking switches were faulty but it didnt make any difference.
Im really interested to find out if the sensor replacement fixed the issue you're having.
If so I'll be taking mine back to the dealer for repair too.
This is an Aussie bike #319 build 01/16.

I just disconnected the battery to attempt to reset the ECU, three attempts to start it and stay running proved successful. So, good news up to this point and i will report back if the issue comes back.

Anyone have any leak issues? Someone on ADrider in the owners section just posted pics of a leak he has on a standard bike where coolant looks to be seeping out of a press fitting on the right side of the engine.

Don't threaten me with a good time!

No leaking on mine so far.
Have put about 1000k's since i reset the ecu and no problems starting it or any backfiring issues so pretty happy with it.

My AT has just been returned to me having had cold and hot start problems. See video https://youtu.be/ecdu9_0JFUg.

As the bike had logged no faults they contacted Honda for advice. I'm told that Honda said to replace the tube to the MAP sensor with a longer piece as the original can be kinked.

On the ride back from my dealer the engine appeared to run smoother and it has started every time without use of the throttle.

As there appears to be a time limit in which posters can edit their post I have reposted this with the correct Facebook link.

Where is this hose located.?
I have looked at the parts breakdown on cyclenation but can't find the MAP sensor anywhere.
Can I see if the hose is kinked without pulling the bike apart?
