Both left hand switch ( SET button) and right hand kill/start switch are now different part numbers as both original parts have been superseded, according to order for replacements on dealers system, today.
2017 (double dipped)spokes come in 4 part numbers for the pair of wheels with ETA for 3 part numbers of January/February 2017 and one part number as June 2017.

Good to here the left hand switched are being taken care off.
The set button isn't that much of a bother to me, but the indicator switch not returning is quite irritating

Spokes & 'SET' switch

At last my dealer got an answer from HONDA on the rusty spokes; they are to replaced by another ferrous spoke, better dipped this time. I will be acquiring ss at my own cost and having the wheels relaced.
During a nice dry day out yesterday my SET switch stuck in, it can be persuaded to come out but cannot be done on the move. I suggested WD 40 to dealer, he's happy I give it a go.

Hi Mudslinger, care to enlighten me as to why not, what effect will WD 40 have ?
Do you have a solution, I'd like to hear please.
A round trip to the nearest HONDA dealer for me is 300+ miles so I am keen to minimise warranty 'runs'.
I like my AT very much, but these small niggles are beginning to take the shine off the pride of ownership.
This is my first HONDA and I am starting to re-evaluate my choice.
