I bought it last year with 6000 klms on it. Since then the ABS modulator failed creating an electrical shutdown as the computer couldnt complete its check sequence on start up, Ive had the Air Box done, I had and still have to a lesser degree the squealing clutch on take off and now this.
Like I said, its just as well the ride is special or she would be with her 3rd boyfriend in 18 months. One more issue and she`s gone.
Your bike is very similar to mine, an Aussie October 06 bike. So far I have had the squealing clutch (very loud now after 24000km), brake pad warning light issue, high idle, even after replacing the airbox, new style seat under warranty. My ABS light stayed on once but reset after the next start.
I ride mine every day and I am a bit concerned about a computer failure such as you have had or the EWS fault that a guy in Kalgoorlie had on a brand new bike. Not good when a long way from anywhere.
Seems like the rear drive problem is rare, but not good if it strikes you. Let us know what it is when you get it fixed. At least it is still under warranty for a few more months.
The best thing about the GT, I reckon, is the suspension, which works extremely well on less than perfect Australian roads. I find the bike perfect for the daily commute in traffic as well as for trips on the open road. My 13 year old son and I just did a 370km trip to a country old time machinery show and back today and the bike was great. No movement in my final drive yet. Didn't even high idle, which is rare on any long trip I do.
