Maybe our complaints are bearing fruit !

My dealer sent me an e-mail that they received a software fix and they are scheduling some bikes this week. I will wait as it is 140 miles roundtrip and I will have to have someone pick me up as they need my bike for several days. Not to just do the update, but they need to fix my fuel gauge that does not work.They have had the bike twice before to try and still not working properly. I also will have my heated grips fixed. they never worked. Probably a bad switch.

At best, my dealer is trying to "make my bike right" Hopefully, they will get it right this time.
