Problem with Recon 250 ES

Hello, as an owner of 3 Honda ATV’s I am deeply concerned about a design issue with my green 2018 Recon 250 with ES. Equally disturbing is the comany’s efforts to bury the issue, which is likely to result in litigation as my only recourse. The ATV has less than 50 hours on it and drains the battery when riding it over 2 hours with the lights on. North’s Services, a Honda dealer, has been able to duplicate the battery drain by letting the ATV idle for 2 hours, but Honda says this is in spec and I should ride the ATV with the lights off??? This is actually against state regulations on MA, which mandate running lights. Has anyone else had this issue? I will update the forum with the ongoing saga, especially if this ends up in litigation. Really pathetic response by Honda.

I just got a couple recons, as in last Tuesday. I keep the lights on all the time while riding. My boys and I went through two tanks of gas since Thursday (with the lights always on) and no dead batteries.

Ours have the foot shifters, my older son has a Rancher with the electric bush button shift. Other I know have the ES and I don't know of anybody with the problem you are having.
