I bought my Cmx500 on 4th July 2018-yesterday 18 August 2018 I to noticed rust seeping around the bottom fork yolk, I also found rust on the frame around where the frame number is stamped, I also found it around the area where the Lambda sensor fits into the catalytic convertor and also where the down pipes join the catalytic convertor.
The bike has been out in the rain a grand total of three times for a total time of no more 2 hours, it is kept under a waterproof cover that is never put on when the bike is still wet and it has had two good coats of GT85 everywhere.
These rust issues are looking more and more like production issues rather than just isolated incidents of rust, I spoke to Honda yesterday and advised them that unless they sort out the issue to my satisfaction I will be taking court action as the bike is obviously not fit for purpose in the UK.
