i'm new to the concours 14, got a well used 2008 model recently and am really liking it, is this issue only on the new ones or on the older ones too?

Don't fret too much about it. I bought my '08 new and I've never seen the problem. I know what to do if it does show up though.

Kurt, have you got the bike to the shop yet?  Just wondering about the outcome.  Please update us with the final resolution.  Thanks.

True but the guy was in Mexico and may not be back home yet. Hey, he may <never> get back home given the horrible nature <k-word> of his problem.  ;)

I guess you are right, I should not jump to conclusions.  After all he is brave riding to Mexico on his bike, I cannot say that I would be that fearless..  After looking at the map he was not in that bad of a location compared to Juarez.  BTW looking forward to installing the security blanket.

Guys, you did see T's posts a page or two back didn't you?  Just because someone doesn't post back immediately after an issue doesn't mean we read something else into this.  People ask for assistance all the time and then don't update us after the fact.  Doesn't mean anything.  So let's keep it that way for now.

Jim, the reference was not just to this thread.  He did the same thing in his last thread as well.
http://www.zggtr.org/index.php?topic=5675.105  Maybe he is just more into riding than providing an ending...

Yeah, I know.  But still, let's give him a break on this for now.

The reality is we provide a tremendous service to C14 owners and there is no requirement that anyone reciprocate. There will always be those who have no interest in our community except when they need help. And that's ok.

You're very right. I enjoy helping other riders when/if I can.
