I saw in the paper that Honda has a recall on atv sold between 05-06, nationwide. Has anyone heard about this. I tried calling the number in the paper and looking on the site, but cannot find any information. Have since lost the paper.

no.... whats the recall for and which bike????
I have seen the recall you all are talking about. If i remember correctly it's for the 450 sport quad (trx450r?) 05-06. It was something about the ball joints could seperate. I'll see if I can find where I saw it at and post what it exactly says.
Ok at least its a sports quad and not a Foreman!

I bought my 05 foreman in canada. Don't know if it makes a difference but i had a recall on my clutch plate. It might just be certain bikes with certain serial numbers. Anyway, honda replaced mine no cost.
i doesnt matter weather you bought it in canda or not cuz we had to have the clutch plate on our 05 500 replaced like 3 months after we got it at no cost. and yes recalls usually dont effext every bike just ones with certain vin numbers
