    Hang on let me go down and check my swing arm............

    Nope no dings in the swing arm. I have about an inch clearance
    between the feet of the center stand and the swing arm.

    So far so good. Of course I don't do any off road work either.

    I know mine is due a replacement centre stand, but to be honest mine is fine. It doesn't come near the swinging arm and works perfectly. I added an extra rubber section to the bump stop. Am also due the clutch return spring. They can do that but they can leave the centre stand alone.

    I'm not wild on the new center stand design. With bumper stops mounted on each leg, it basically rides on the swingarm all of the time and uses the rubber bump stops as a cushion. Even though everything else looks the same on the cs it seems harder to deploy then the older design and harder take off. I don't know if its my imagination or reality, but either way I don't like the design. :puke1

    Installed new center stand a couple days ago. It took around 90 min. to install. Not difficult just a little rigamarole. I wouldn't think there was anything wrong with the design unless I was told there was:lol3:lol3:lol3

    Anyone know if there a way through tuneECU or other means besides dealer tool or having the dealership do it to clear the service interval indicator?

    Go to posting #6536 here, Birdy68 describes how to do the service indicator reset with freeware Torque and an android cell phone with a bluetooth dongle (whatever that is).

    I believe Dealertool or dealer are your only options. Dealertool is pretty cool.

    Just out of curiosity, do you have both keys on the same keyring?

    No only a dealer or using "dealertool" I prefer dealertool for servicing as I like the layout better. Use tuneecu for mapping only.

    Here's the link to 6536: http://advrider.com/forums/showpost.php?p=16169050&postcount=6536

    And he says:

    Despite what the above reads, I was also under the impression you need dealertool to clear the service indicator. I'm almost up to 5k miles though, and I have all the above mentioned, so I'll give it a go when the time comes.

    BTW, I don't think you need to start the bike as mentioned in #5 to see codes. You can just turn the ignition on. Of course if you want to see parameters of certain sensors, you'll have to start it. If you don't start it, pull the headlight fuses to keep the battery from draining (this is more important for tuneecu).

    So my new tiger has shed 3 of 4 indicators in under a week. Seems like the heat has made them super soft and high speed wind or light pressure makes the rubber crack and tear. My front signals are being held on with gorilla tape right now, and right rear is duct taped to the side of the bike. Anyone else having problems with this? Bike has not been down. Its almost as if I have a turn signal gremlin chewing on them at night!

    Other than that. I LOVE THIS BIKE!!

    I'd look a little harder for the gremlins. Any very young children, dogs, or cats around? No problem here in the Texas heat.

    First I've ever heard of this. No issues with mine, over a year old and has been subjected to 98 degree ambient temperatures (probably 115 degrees on the highway) for hundreds of miles at a time

    I'm having an interesting issue with my XC. On a hot day, the fabric of the passenger seat appears to start breaking down. It sticky to the point that it holds fingerprints. Armor all helps for a day or so, then it gets sticky again. You can rake your fingernails across the seat and the material scrapes off. Just under 6k and love the bike. Will see if warranty actually works in a few weeks.

    Maybe it's the Armor-All that's breaking down the material.

    (BTW seats, hand grips and tires are things that I like to be grippy and wouldn't go near with Armor-All - but that's just me.)

    It was doing this for a week or so and I called the dealer to bitch, the recommended using Armor All. Ive never had to put anything at all on a bike seat but gave it a try since the service dept recommended it. (the issue I'm having is not a grippy seat, when you can touch a seat on a warm day and your hand comes away with residue, something is wrong,)

    Sorry to hear of your issues. Any news ?

    doG I bloody hate shit like immobilizers - I don't want one and I don't friggin' need one (and nor do I want to bloody pay for one).

    So....is there a way to override/disable the immobilizer :ear

    Mine is doing the same. It was a demo and I think they used something to try to clean the shoe scuffs off of it from people getting on and off and whatever they used attacked the vinyl. It was like that when I got it. I didn't do anything to it.
