It has become clear why the drain hose was installed on the 08 and later models.
It does not stop the leak but it at least moves the drainage off the engine case and to the back left side of the engine.

Paul

Probably better when it leaks in storage and also easier to find from where the leak come from the rest of the year when parked ,also .

I suppose the result is has much messy in both case when it leak while riding ,but without that drain hose You get the smell faster , I would beleive.

So yesterday, finally, the bike was out of the shed. Before going for a ride, I have to check those brakes still dragging. Remember, I went to the Honda dealer to rely on a job made by a professional. I have moderate mechanic skills but for this sophisticated brake system I prefer to rely on a certified Honda mechanic.

I kind of lost some trust in these guys as you can see on this picture of the left front caliper…

The pistons, the entire caliper, looks very clean.
What are we looking at with the arrow?
The marks where is was ground to clean casting flash?

Put a pad in with the pin and see if there is any interference.

Does the grind mark look clean and new? Did you look to see how close it was when installed? I don't have enough experience with Pans but I'm wondering if the spacers on the front wheel are in correctly...

The grind mark is made by the disc because of a misaligned wheel. I think it is the source of my problems.

This is the textbook example of why those in the business should test ride before delivery. Mistakes can and will happen but something as simple as a run through the parking lot would have pointed out a problem that should have been addressed long before the customer was notified the job was complete.
What could have been a learning experience in the fine art of reading the manual when you are not completely sure of procedure becomes instead a lost customer experience that does no one any good.

Not riding a bike that has had brake work is a serious issue that has the very real potential of being a fatal mistake.

There is only one correction available in my opinion.
The mechanic is not paid for this job.
The service manager has the authority to refund the complete service ticket, offer a apology, and hope the dealership does not loose a customer.
