Dang. My tranny has 24k miles on it. Hope it's not living on borrowed time!

Do you feel that the bike really needed the steering dampener? And which one did you get?

Masquerading every day as a normal person is exhausting.

Yes the bike did need some front end stabilization. The bike power wheelies easily under full load and coming out of turns would cause oscillation which was a bit unnerving.

All the information pertaining to the suspension upgrades can be found on this video:

mine has 23,000 miles on it and it's a 2016.

I have just bought it with that mileage.

I have no regrets as it impressed me from the word go, it is a great all round performer. So glad I went for the 1200 engine.

35,000 miles well done

Dave

I wouldn't worry too much... From what I can gather this is a very rare problem. Once I hit 40K and clear that mile stone I'll let you know if the new transmission holds up!

Once the suspension is sorted it is an awesome sport tourer
