So after the dealer had the bike for 5 weeks and could not duplicate the FI light i picked it up last Saturday 29th. I didn't get 10 miles from the dealer and the FI light came back on. Drove it home another 45 miles and it started to stall every time I slowed down. Had to feather the throttle to avoid this. Oh and when I picked up the bike the service guy (not the one I had been dealing with) says how come you got just an oil change and didn't want the full 25k service? WHAT Austin said that was all that was due at 25k. NOT!!!

Called a different dealer on Monday and he let me talk to his top tech, (its 90 min away but will be going there from now on) ran through the whole story he immediately said ECM. Spoke to parts on back order til???

Long story short found new one online for $240 less than dealer wanted and did it and air filter myself this past Friday, bike runs great. Hope that is all the big $$$$ for a while.
