Default 10K Check - Priceless - Oil Leak Found

Took '08 Kingpin in for 10K check. In process, they found an oil leak inside front belt gear cover. With belt/gear cover pulled, they found the speed sensor with one of two tabs broken and when removed, they found an o-ring that had a cut as though is was mis-installed and got cut during the tightening of the speed sensor. Thankfully have two weeks left of two year warranty.

Hopefully this is the last time I need to be "lucky" and all the workmanship defects are done and infant mortality has been taken care of in the electronics.

I knew the warranty was expiring, but didn't expect them to find anything unusual because the bike had been running fine and no low oil light had ever come on.

Kuddos go to Joe, the mechanic, at Erv's Sales and Service, Tomahawk, WI!!

+1 to that. Sounds like they're taking care of you on the service end...
