Look Under your seat, there is a metal plate tack welded to the inner rear frame rail on the left side, the build date (and some other info) is engraved onto that plate.

Thanks

August 03 build date. Is this build date in the ECU replacement? I have only owned the bike for one month and it has 8K miles. The only problem I have had is the idle will slow at times when hot and in city traffic. Is this a problem? Thanks

My dealer showed me the computer print out describing the bad ECU symptoms. What I remember best is what they described as "bad throttle response" before the engine is at normal operating temperature. So, when you first start the bike, how does it respond to twisting the throttle? Does it sumble or die?

PS: the build date on my bike is April '04

I'd be interested in knowing if there are any GT's out there with a post-4/2004 build date. Anyone?

My '04 GT has a build date of 01/04. I purchased it 04/05. Going to work on her tonight, departure temp 48f. Somewhere around 36f in the morning for the ride home.
