ST1300 Urgent News
Following a near-catastrophic accident, a number of Pan-Clan members report a serious problem with their ST1300's. It relates to the centre clamp underneath the bike where the exhausts meet.
For one member, this was so rotted that it collapsed as he was riding, the rear tyre then hit the clamp as it fell causing a blow-out. Others have checked theirs and found that the clamp has come away in their hands.
Replacement clamps are relatively cheap, and a lot better than the possible alternative.
Having just had my ST1300 MoT'd, I got a report that the clamps on the silencers were splitting (not the central one that gave the problem above). Having checked all three clamps I have now obtained a set of the 3 clamps required (2 large, one smaller), in stainless steel, from ebay. Cost, including the £1 premium for 1st class delivery (=next day for me) was £17! I was quoted almost £120 by the garage doing the MoT to just replace the 2!!
The Pan European Owners Club ("Pan-Clan")
The Pan European Owners Club ("Pan-Clan") is a UK wide club for owners of the Honda Pan-European models. These are currently the ST-1100 and ST-1300, but we are ever hopeful that Honda are about to launch a replacement model.
The Club is UK wide, but the country is divided into more manageable areas, which can be seen listed in the top left of this page. To see which area you might be in, visit this interactive map.
Each Area has an Area Rep who is responsible for informing all the members in their area about National and Local events that are taking place.
All Areas will have a schedule of ride-outs for each year. You can contact your nearest Area Rep to arrange a "Try before you Buy" where you will be made very welcome to attend one of the area events, and one of their regular meetings too.
Around this page you will see information about the various National Events we organise for the Pan-Clan members (sorry, these are strictly Pan-Clan members only). Elsewhere on the site is the information about how you can join the Pan-Clan. There is also information about the bi-Monthly magazine (PANtasia) which is sent to all members.
If you are not sure which area you might be in, check out the map on the Areas page. As a member of the Pan-Clan you can attend any area meeting, the assignment to an Area Rep is purely so you don't get forgotten! If you live near the border of one of our areas, it might be more appropriate and quicker to visit the adjoining areas meetings. You'll be very welcome wherever you attend.
