Iím pretty sure this is not mechanical! But my left handle and switch cluster rotates when I twist it. Iím sure this is not normal.

There is a T15 Torx screw behind the left grip at the switch block end of the grip. Peel the grip back and you will see the screw. They come loose all the time on the other bikes with multi controllers. @BMW_388 has already had his come loose.

3 times it came loose. Then 2 others here in DFW also I noticed and they did not until I told them the grip was too loose.

It appears a tiny bit of Loctite is in order.

The dealer said my bike is fixed and took it for a 30 mile test ride. It is going to be fairly nervous ride for me this weekend, as the bike shut down on me the last two times prior to this fix. Keep your fingers crossed and I hope to post that all is good by the end of the weekend.

Not really mechanical, but an "issue" nonetheless.

My wonderwheel switch was a bit "clicky" / sticky when rotating it. Felt like something was getting caught within. Brought it up with the tech when I had my 600 mile service done a few weeks back. They said they felt it too, and ordered me a new part. Part came in the following day but I didn't want to go back to the dealership so soon.

Anyway, ended up going in yesterday. Took an hour, replaced under warranty (so no cost), new wheel feels smooth and great. No complaints here.

I always thought the thin discs would warp with lots of track days or races. The buttons that allow the discs to float may seize first. I know of one rider that has experienced this and is hoping for warranty repair.

So, my mechanical issue appears to be fixed. I now believe I know what part of the problem was. I donít recall hearing the engine fan cycle on and off when I had those problems. Sunday after getting the bike back, I heard the engine fan cycle on and off a bunch of times. On the previous days I had the problem, I did not know whether or not the fan came on, as I wasnít sure if it was quiet or made a lot of noise. The fan on my aprilia was so quiet that you did not hear it. As such, I think that the fan was not operating and that contributed to the problem. Other than that, the bike ran perfect. The bike also ran cooler than before during normal operation. Thank god, as I was losing my faith in it.

I'm happy it's fixed, but I'm scared for the long term damage that overheating to the point of shutting off caused to the engine. Fortunately you have the history of repairs with the dealer so if there is a latent issue that arises down the road you should be covered no problem
