No biggie, just dropped off the beast today at the shop (1 hr drive), getting the guages replaced (warranty) it has an oil leak (warranty) getting a new handlebar set-up ;D with bar-end turnsignals ;D new rear tire ;D and a new belly pan ;D.
She will be there a couple of weeks, no problem since we are getting snow/ice tomorrow and it has been to cold to ride anyway.

Your story makes me sad. I need to go hug mine.

Which handlebar and belly pan? DP's?

Hey, mines in the shop too, and everytime I go to the garage and see that empty space , a panic attack overcomes me. She should be home by Saturday!!! I am going to call tommorow to see if I can talk to her!!!! :'(

OK, well the oil leak is the cylinder gasket :'(, so the bike will be down for a few more weeks.
The handlebar setup I ended up going with is the cyclecats, I sure hope they are good.
At least I still have my trusty Yamaha to ride while the Duc is down.
It was 50 on Saturday so me and 2 buds went riding for the day.

Guages were defective, they would fog up in cooler weather.

Where did you see the oil? Was it bruning out of the pipes or around the filler cap? Mine has oil residue around both areas.

mine leaked around the filler cap, FBF put on a new gasket, mine is also leaking out of the timing site window, which they are going to fix when the engine casing comes in.

filler cap is pretty typical, mine was leaving a small puddle of oil behind the back cylinder.

Mine had a puddle there after coming from the 6000mile service , FBF blamed it on spillage from the service. We cleaned it up and it hasn't puddled any more. Cause he did say it could be a gasket leak, so I am to watch it.
