RE: New CB1100Ex 2017 in Ontario Canada
Thanks guys. I am really sure that the two round horn ring displays should look exactly the same, but they don't. When I return to the dealership for the 600 mile service I will point out the discrepancy and see if it can be corrected (like a mylar protector) and I'll update you all when I do.

This is the problem. There is no protective plastic cover or anything else that makes any sense. It looks like some sort of manufacturing issue. What the heck should I do about it?

I think you should find out whether it's unique. If it is, keep it for its rarity value.

Are you sure there are no clear mylar covers on the front of that horn? Rub your finger or finger nail over the edge of it where the black meets the chrome.

If that's a plastic part, it might be that there was some residual orange in the injection molding process and the part should have been discarded.

That does look strange. What do Honda website photos show?

The powersports site shows 2 black horns. No orange.

If you come to a fork in the road, take it!

I promise all of you that there is no residual cover of any kind. I have looked closely with a magnifying glass and I have used my fingers and fingernails to try to detect anything over the horn. I don't like it and except for replacing the horn unit I can't imagine what can be done. I expect resistance from the dealer.

That is indeed strange. I would not expect resistance from the dealer, that is not right.
