Hi Thanks, can you and others here with a TVL let me know about your ownership experience? Has the bike been reliable?
My 2016 purchased new in 2018 has never left me stranded at the side of the road.Hi Thanks, can you and others here with a TVL let me know about your ownership experience? Has the bike been reliable?
thanks for your input, do you mean you would NOT buy it again?My 2016 purchased new in 2018 has never left me stranded at the side of the road.
But, over the course of 5 years and 10k miles my bike has experienced:
1)Cruise control button failure; was able to MacGyver a fix myself.
2)Engine just stopped while slowing for a stop sign; it did restart and has not flamed out since... touch wood.
3)Intermittent fuel indicator operation (for over a year); now does not work at all and not fixed it yet.
4)Low rear brake pedal due to air in the rear ABS circuit; (fixed) by discontinuing use of rear ABS circuit by way of DIY brake line.
5)The infamous kangaroo clutch activity; fixed myself (so far) by changing installation direction of the belleville spring in the clutch pack.
6)Oh just remembered right off the dealer's lot the clutch switch did not work. Long story short: air in the slave cylinder was the problem; fixed myself and touch wood, no further problem with it.
Other than those things it's a great bike; that I would not buy again.
