Greeneville Honda is back!!

They had sold the dealership to Mountain Motorsports a few months back and evidently, MM could not come to terms with Mother Honda, so Jim decided to keep the Honda franchise. They are open now on 11E on the south side of Greeneville. Noticed it passing through last week so included it as a stop on my Saturday ride. Scheduled my brake recall then and here now getting it done. They have a pretty good inventory, though only one Wing on the floor. They also have the power equipment; generators, mowers, string trimmers, etc. If you are in the area, stop by and tell them Hello. Nice folks here.

Brake recall completed in about an hour and a half. Good to go. Hoping they do well and can stay in business there. Seemed to have a pretty good amount of traffic in the store today.

I was glad to see this as well.... and have not given up all hope with them yet, but my first experience with the brake recall has not been great. First of all, they screwed up some adjustment that caused my cruise control to stop working. I had to take it back for them to correct that. And now I have the rear brake shudder many report, so they apparently did a half-azz job bleeding them. It is not real bad so I intend to re-bleed them myself later using the techniques mentioned. I hope this isn't a sign of the quality of their shop work... but I will continue turning my own wrenches as much as possible.

Took the long way home yesterday through Persia and St. Clair (you know the road ). Brakes worked great. Fingers crossed.

Thought the process took longer? More like 3 hours or so.
That's what I have been told.

When I scheduled it, they asked if I was going to drop it off or wait for it. When I told them I would wait, they told me it should take about two an a half hours. My appointment was at 10:00, I arrived around 9:50 and was leaving at 11:30. They told me they swapped out the master cylinder and replaced the brake fluid. When I arrived, they already had one Wing in the shop, but I suppose they switched to mine since I was waiting.

Well, so much for good to go on the brakes. Rode to Hot Springs today and picked up the shudder. Makes trailing braking almost impossible. I'll call them on Monday and schedule a return visit 😡
