Back to the dealer this week, I have an intermitent speedo fault.
The speedo works fine untill the bike is warm, then it starts jumping around untill it stops working.
I think it could be the sensor.
I hope its not a sign of things to come !!!

Cheers.

I love the smell of Freedom in the morning... smells... smells like... Victory!
