    This sounds like pillow-talk. Where in the service manual does it say this?

    Look at the bright side as its better than having the transmission lock up and kill you like the V92's were capable of.

    Since this appears to just be a whiney-ass bitch session by the OP:

    Appears the linked brakes on the early Visions are to blame. Moisture over the course of time gets into the rear brake system and since they're linked mechanics are forgetting to bleed the center piston on the front calipers.

    Do some research ya lazy-ass before bitching about it on every motorcycle forum you have the ambition to register for. :bash

    Edit: WOW, what a coincidence... This guy on another forum has the same exact problem...
