Today I noticed a piece of rubber sticking out from under the body panel just above the rear tire. It looks like a shield to keep dirt from getting on the engine. The one on the left side is hanging, and the one on the right side is gone. Time for a trip to the dealer. Just a heads-up for other Forza owners.

And a photo I took the day I got the bike:

I check the bike every day and so far have not noticed this problem.

No, it takes hours rather than minutes for the crankcases to self-destruct.

I can't figure out where to connect the other end. The only hole I can find is in a tab on the metal frame up under the plastic bodywork, but it's too big.

actually my 2013 PCX 150 did have loose parts....some of the plastic was loose and I only discovered so because i did all my own servicing. some of the 6mm's and the body panel screws....but you know built in japan but assembled here so sloppiness abounds....

Thought the PCX was manufactured and assembled in Thailand?

Dealer told me that mine was made in Italy?
