    You can ride it from now into eternity - it's not the engine making it stall, it's the the sidestand switch.

    Go get the update.

    Don't be a yutz. :)

    My XC stalled in rush hour traffic...Almost got myself run over. Very nice...

    They came and got the bike. Could not find anything wrong. Imagine that! My fault! Even though they found multiple codes thrown the week before at the 600 mile check...:huh

    Few days later in the garage, I started looking it over closely and solved two issues.

    1. The reason the seat never fit right.
    2. The stalling.

    One of the rubber bumpers on the underside of the seat was pinching the return line from the tank to the air box...

    How could that happen?

    The tube was routed along the TOP of the frame rail...

    After cutting all the ties and repositioning the tube the seat fit great.:augie
    Oh yah', it stopped stalling too...


    Love the bike.
    But it seems like warranties (or concern) are becoming less valuable than the paper their written on.
    (Kinda' like health insurance...:lol3)
