Still on the road (Stecoah, NC right now) but will be home by the weekend. I'll call BMW Las Vegas to check out availability. Cheap enuff.
(The other deal I have on the hook is an 03 DRZ 400 for $2000, with goodies already attached. Still, the 650 sounds good. )
No Pressure, buy the one you want most. But at least go ride one, that is what sealed the deal for me!
The MOSS fueling issue is an easy fix-- takes a few minutes and free. In my experience the fueling issue sorted itself out once the bike had a few miles on it. After the first 150 miles the fueling got smooth as butter, no stalls, I guess the ECU adapted? I think many of the owners who bought recently after the fueling update just need to relax and ride.
The fender is also fairly isolated and fully covered under warranty. Cheap insurance on the fender is the $14 Enduro Engineering plate adapter in place of the heavy factory unit. Even if you had to replace the fender yourself later down the line it's not an expensive item, bodywork on this bike is CHEAP! My Terra front end was under $60, and a replacement radiator guard was only $14. The stickers were expensive though so I skipped the front logo... $11 a piece
