I imagine the fix is very simple...
The turn signal issue sounds like a dealer prep issue. It should have been caught there.
Sounds like the tmax has better seating position than the Burman we used to have. My problem with the tmax the only time I rode one (motorcycle show demo ride) was that the hump was so hight it was hard for my bad hip to clear it. Personally I prefer the BV or Scarabeo 500 to the maxis.
