  1. According to a previous article, there have been a few other brands and models using this same modulator; manufactured by Nissin, that have been recalled, and that there will probably be many more recalls coming on many models and brands of powered-two-wheelers, using Nissin modulators. So if you’ve got one of these new CTX700NDs that is part of this recall, I wouldn’t get too down on Honda for this one. How could they or any of the other MC manufactures have foreseen this one coming?
