Unhappy 2008 Airbag recall

Has anyone tried to have their airbag replaced since the recall? I brought mine in for the recall on Monday 12/12/16 and there seems to be a problem with the replacement airbag bolt hole not lining up. They have gotten 2 new airbags and the bolt holes are not lining up. The dealer has been working with Honda trying to figure out what is going on. They are sending a third airbag which should be in tomorrow to see if it fits. The service guy said this is the first replacement to be sent out. Just wondering if anyone has had their airbag replaced yet.

Had mine done no problem but I thought they just replaced the actuator that deploys the bag not the actual bag.

According to this they change the whole unit Honda WILL NOTIFY OWNERS, AND DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE AIRBAG MODULE WITH A REDESIGNED AIRBAG MODULE THAT USES AN INFLATOR WITH A DIFFERENT PROPELLANT THAN THE MATERIAL USED IN THE RECALLED PART, FREE OF CHARGE. OWNERS MAY CONTACT MOTORCYCLE CUSTOMER SUPPORT AT 1-866-784-1870. HONDA'S NUMBER FOR THIS RECALL IS KA8.

At first that's what I was told. Now dealer said I need to bring wing in before they take the vin# for my bike and then request hole airbag. So the wing will be down for like 3 week's

I just called my dealer, gave him my vin# and he's ordering parts. Says he'll call me to schedule the work when they come in.

Ok so the service guy called me today and he said they replace the whole unit. They are working with Honda sending pictures and measurements because the new units do not fit. He said more than likely he would be putting my old unit back in until they can figure out why they are not lining up something to do with the jig. I told him to just tell Honda to give me a new 2016 lol. I gave them until Friday. What a cluster****.

I just did the same thing. They will be replacing an air filter while they are in there also.

Just did our Airbag (not that I lost much sleep over a deployment of the old airbag).

Also got a new front ABS actuator under warranty. BTW a few years ago we got a new color display under warranty so we got our money's worth out of the extended warranty.

Only had to pay for an air filter change and to install a couple minor parts. Also bought a new seat and a body panel so our 50K mileage bike looks new again.
