At this point you would have to take it to the dealer and ask that they reset adaptations. I don't think the GS911 works with the K-67 yet. Did the clutch develop excessive play when hot?

I waited until I got my exhaust and rear sets on. They wanted 250 to do the adoptions resets and I told them HELL NO. For one click of the button 250 they are crazy..... So when I heard there was a full ECU update out its now going to get done under warranty for free on Saturday

That doesn't make sense. If the bike is not shifting properly they should fix it for free under warranty. Resetting adaptations would be their easiest and cheapest fix.

Resetting adaptations should be free really. I mean there is a little time to teach the quickshifter back in but you'd almost get away with that for free if you were a good customer and had a good relationship with your dealer.

Wes did you say there is a new ECU out ?
Please report in if any of the big issues : cold start or poor power delivery are getting fixed by it ????

@paxman The ECU update is a campaign and addresses ignition timing at 14,200rpm. It is said to help with cold starts in combination with a adaptation reset. Nothing to do with emissions restrictions. It's a software update not a whole ECU.

Alright, I'm pissed.

I have no idea how the f*ck this happened. After a 20 minute commute to get something to eat, this is what I see when I park my bike:











There are 4 T25s that hold the fender on. 3 of the screws were missing and the 4th was barely screwed in. I have no idea how they vibrated themselves out. I've never taken the fender off, and the tech didn't take it off when he did the full exhaust. The only thing I can think of is that the dealership I purchased the bike from took the fender off when they did the radiator and oil cooler guards. But I don't think they'd need to take it off for that. Are these screws normally loctited from the factory? If not, I'd recommend you all check your fender screws. If the original dealership didn't remove the fender (and thus break the loctite seal) then this is something that could happen to anyone.

Last night I did some high-speed runs, got up to 184. Maybe the high vibration caused them to finesse their way out? I truly have no clue how the hell this happened.

I just called my local dealership and they said this will all be covered under warranty. I'm going to take a couple of T25s from the fairings to temporarily use to secure the fender for my ride to the dealership. They will hopefully have some extra screws. They said they're going to order a new fender and such, but they want to take a peek at it.

The fender got eaten into by my brake rotor. The rotor looks to be slightly damaged as well. Tire looks like it got worn down from rubbing a bit. Carbon wheel looks unharmed, but we'll be able to see once I clean it off.

I'm not too pleased about this one. I'll keep you all apprised with any updates.
