My statement still stands that there are no real updates to the 2014 even though (or because) no information is available.

That could be true!!
I have NO info of the bike at all.
All I know is a bike will be delivered to my house in about two weeks.
I guess we all shall wait and see.
I hope can call on all the knowledge from Tiger owners.
Thanks !

[QUOTE=vicster;21949903]Want to know something frightening? I just got back from MotoGP and once again noticed that CA drivers are better than Washington drivers by a factor of about 5. WA drivers are waaay up there in the accidents per mile driven category. And they live on their cell phones.QUOTE]

+1 on WA drivers. Horrible!!

bit of a thread hijack.... no that doesn't look bad at all. Here is a reasonable non-third world example of overload. So many examples of bikes overloaded in India for utility or commerce but I don't feel that counts.

Gear Shift Lever Spring

Anyone know the symptoms of the "Gear Shift Lever Spring" failure. My shifting has gone to shit in a week. Sometimes normal other times not. The spring has not yet been replaced.

Missed second two or three times, difficulty down shifting.

2011 model with 16k miles. It has been tagged for spring replacement.
