**IMPORTANT PLEASE READ** This part is still made by Honda to this day, due to the age of the mould in which the part is made there are certain casting imperfections in the finish of the part, these imperfections are now unavoidable. All of them have the same casting imperfections. Please understand due to the age of the mould there is a strong likelihood this part will become discontinued very soon. Moulds are very expensive to create, so it is doubtful Honda will create a new mould to keep manufacturing this old part. We could of course be wrong, but at the moment this part comes with imperfections in the finish and there is nothing we can do about it. See photographs showing the casting imperfections, they are only obvious upon close inspection and in our opinion do not detract.
