Out of curiosity how long have you been waiting. My sports pack is also on back order

Went in to the dealer today to chase and they have said August they are due in the country. But they have no idea how many will be arriving or how many are on back order so its first come first serve. I can imagine having to wait even longer.

I was told December originally. They've now changed it to August. Hopefully they're telling the truth.

Seems pot luck at the moment. Someone told me there was an issue with the build quality on the quickshifter but I’m not sure if it was just hearsay. I think they didn’t realise how popular the cb and cbr would be. I do hope you all get your options soon though.

Just an update. I have raised a complaint with Honda themselves, not the dealer, as to why it's taking so long to get the sports pack and asked for a reason for the delay and also a delivery date as the dealer has now said they are not getting any info from Honda at all on lead times. I'm going to push for some sort of compensation as I've paid for something I have not received and will let you know how I get on. No doubt I will get nowhere but you can only try.

I have asked for an update and my dealer has now told me as well that they do not know when the parts will arrive. This is really annoying.

Honda is currently not dispatching any 650s from Thailand. Our dealers have said next lot of 650s arrive only next year and I think its because of a change in upcoming emission requirements...

Well, they should at least make (or purchase from sub contractors) enough quickshifters to fill all outstanding orders.

Right then. I've managed to get somewhere. They have sent the seat cowl out to the dealer separate to the rest of the pack. Might sound stupid but this is as important to me as the quick shifter as in my opinion it completes the look of the bike. This is contrary to their policy of only despatching the pack when it is complete. Lead times for the quick shifter are now the end of September but still on a first come first serve basis, and from what the guy at Honda has told me there are A LOT on back order so he wouldn't make any promises. To compensate me for this they are going to pay for my service and give me credit with my dealer to purchase some extras. So my advice is to contact Honda directly and raise an enquiry. Keep chasing them and eventually they will compensate you, not ideal but its better than a kick in the teeth.

That’s the same deal they gave me. End of day Honda dropped the ball massively on this so it really is the least they can do. Seat cowl is awesome and get some blanking plates to remove the footpegs ;)

Ordered my bike with the Sportpackage (Black Windshield, CBR Tankpad, Seatcowl, Quickshifter) in April. Got my bike with the Tankpad and black Windshield in May. But without Seatcowl and Quickshifter.
On Monday i got my Seatcowl, finally.
The QS is still in backlog, but it should arrive until Oktober.
