Default New XR owner, speed sensor problems...

Yesterday I traded my 09 Vegas for a NOS 2012 XR. Took the bike on it's maiden voyage today and with 145 miles on the odo, the speedo went a little crazy. The gear indicator, cruise control and speedo stopped working intermittently. A quick search revealed others with speed sensor problems. I'll be taking it back to the shop Monday since it's still under warranty, but I'm curious, a bad sensor on a brand new bike? BTW, loved the ride, and the bike.

NOS= New Old Stock. In other words he bought an untitled 2012 XR so it is considered a new bike.

glad its all sorted. just a reminder to everyone that no matter how good a manufacturing process is, bad parts still get made from time to time. And no matter how good the inspection process is, those bad parts can make their way out the door. It sucks to be on the receiving end of one, but there is no reasonable way to ensure only 100% good parts get shipped.
