Mungenast Motorsports Welcomes Victory Motorcycles To The Family

January 26, 2012

It’s no secret that Dave Mungenast Sr. was perhaps one of the most influential motorcycle enthusiasts in St. Louis’ rich motorsports history.  Dave took all his passion and energy for his love of motorcycles and opened his first dealership, St. Louis Honda, in 1965.  Today, we continue Dave’s passion for motorsports and share the enthusiasm for ridership that our company was founded on.  We’re proud to announce a new chapter in our history as we welcome Victory Motorcycles, one of the most quintessentially American motorcycle brands of our time, to our showroom.  Victory set out to establish a reputation for themselves as “The New American Motorcycle” when they began producing their bikes back in 1998 in Spirit Lake, Iowa.  Today, Victory is an industry leader in design, production, and powertrain development.

Please stay tuned to our blog for more information about Victory Motorcycles.  We expect to have the first models arrive within the next three weeks.

Honda ATV’s – Fun No Matter How Cold It Is

January 18, 2012

Awhile back, Honda caught word of a pair of hikers in Alaska who discovered an abandoned Honda ATV that was buried under feet of snow and ice, and it started right up – even though nobody knows exactly how long it had been there.

Honda, for whatever reason (call it… research) decided that they would emulate this scenario themselves by freezing an ATV in a block of ice, so they filmed the result, and it rang true to the story out of Alaska.

Never Be Without The Power You Need To Succeed

January 9, 2012

Don’t get left in the dark, folks.  When there’s a power outage, nothing’s worse than being stuck at home with no lights, computer, or TV – or worse, worrying about all that the food you just stocked the fridge or freezer with – knowing that it will spoil unless the power comes back on.  While power outages are a fact of modern life, you don’t have to sit in the dark or worry about your food going bad.

With a Honda generator from Mungenast Motorsports, you can run essential equipment in your home, like a refrigerator, a couple lights, and a television, for as long as you need to.  Or on your next camping trip, make sure you pack a generator to power your camper if your campsite doesn’t have its own place to plug in.  They’re also great for the jobsite if you’re in construction or even mobile detailing.  Never be without the power you need to succeed.

At Mungenast Motorsports, we carry a wide variety of Honda generators – we’ve got Economy, Deluxe, Industrial, and Super Quiet generators – meaning we carry THE generator to suit your needs.  And for our Super Quiet generators, there are custom vinyl graphics available from Honda so that you can show your support for your favorite NASCAR driver – a great way to show team spirit on your next camper trip to the racetrack or tailgate party.

Come in today or visit our website to see the large inventory of Honda generators we carry.  For more information regarding the full line of Honda Power Equipment, check back to our blog and find us on Facebook.

Are YOU Ready For The Big One?

January 6, 2012

Winter in St. Louis can be rather unpredictable.  In no other city would you expect the fashion police to not harass point out someone wearing shorts with a parka (and a Cardinals cap, too).  Over the past week or so, we’ve been graced with relatively mild weather – but as a seasoned St. Louisan, you know this weather won’t last long, and it’s only a matter of time before you or someone you know will be faced with having to remove snow and ice from around your home or office.

Luckily, Mungenast Motorsports has your back.  We’re your local one-stop shop for ALL of your outdoor power equipment needs, and we’re proud to carry Honda single-stage snow blowers.  You’ll be impressed with how quickly and effortlessly you can clear heavy winter accumulation from your entire driveway and sidewalk in minutes, not hours.  Moreover, according to USA Today, you’ll be reducing your risk of a heart-attack related to shoveling snow, because you won’t have to shovel your driveway anymore.  But be forewarned – don’t be surprised if your neighbors will start to ask you for little favors now and then – especially once they see how effortlessly you can remove snow from around your home, and they’ll ask you to do it for them occasionally (but you know they just need to come down to our showroom and buy their own!).

Again – Don’t be fooled by this mild winter weather, folks!  Hurry into Mungenast Motorsports today to make a purchase you won’t regret this season – invest in a quality Honda snow blower!

Honda completely revamps CRF line for 2012

December 23, 2011


There’s good news for motocross enthusiasts!

Hondas line of CRF Motocross bikes are back and better than ever.

After being completely redesigned for 2012, the new line of CRF bikes are set to make their offroad debut within the next few weeks.

With three different models — the 450R, 250R and 150R — the Honda CRF line has everyone talking, including the pros on Honda Racing.

Over the last few years, the CRF has taken the lead in the four-stroke motocross revolution, and is expected to remain on top, especially with new features, such as refined suspension, better brakes and steering precision, that have been added to each model.  The CRF series has undergone a serious transformation, but the bike’s acceleration and handling were not compromised during the procsess, thanks to a new cylinder head, camshaft, and throttle body. And, while performance among the new line of CRFs has dramatically increased, comfort and traction has also been upgraded, as each model is now equipped with wider, longer footpegs and Dunlop MX51 tires to help give each bike more traction. Other additional features were made to the CRF engine, too.

You can learn more about the 2012 CRF450R, 250R or 150R by visiting powersports.honda.com

Honda recalls 126,000 GoldWing motorcycles

December 18, 2011



Honda Motor Co., Ltd. is recalling 126,000 GL-1800 GoldWing motorcycles because of a rear brake malfunction that could lead to a crash or fire. The recall has been issued for all GL-1800s made between 2001-2011 and certain 2012 models.

According to a statement released earlier this month by Honda, the recall indicates that there is a possibility of the combined braking system’s secondary master cylinder to drag. The secondary master cylinder on affected motorcycles may have insufficient internal freeplay between the pressure cup and the compensating port hole. If the freeplay is insufficient, the compensating port can become blocked by the pressure cup, which is what causes the combined braking system’s secondary master cylinder to drag.

The manufacturer was alerted to a possible problem in July 2010 after a customer finished a ride, parked his motorcycle and saw fire emanating from the rear brake area of the bike.

Honda said that it took 16 months to determine the problem and the appropriate course of action and that 26 complaints about the GL-1800 have been received. The manufacturer also said the problem has not caused any crashes or injuries and that only 4 percent of recalled bikes will have the defective part.

GL-1800 owners will be notified by Honda to have their motorcycle inspected. Service and replacement of the combined braking system on affected models will be free of charge, if necessary.

The recall will take effect January 4, 2012, but owners can call Honda customer service at 866-784-1870, or the NHTSA Vehicle Safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more information.

To have your GL-1800 GoldWing motorcycle inspected or serviced, contact Paul Benson at 314-894-1330 or visit mungenastmotorsports.com.

Below is a list of possible affected GL-1800 GoldWing motorcycles.
