Rick, where do you take your bike for warranty work? Daytona in Van have been very helpful to me with 3 warranty issues, and I didn't even buy the bike from them. As a mechanic, you're no doubt aware that even with the updated valve cover gasket, they have to use sealant on the half moons, especially on the right angles, otherwise it will continue to leakThursday it gets the updated valve cover gasket.
The thermostat housing was one of my warranty issues. It took about 3 weeks for the part to arrive. Not sure if they installed an upgraded part (ie, not oval!) but the leak has stopped now, so fingers crossed!My updated thermostat housing still hasn't shown up yet, the Samco hoses are holding ok on the stock oval but my mechanic brain still doesn't like it.
Keep us posted on the RapidBike Easy. I'd like to hear first hand experience of whether it genuinely improves the low speed fueling. Good luck!I installed the RapidBike Easy just before putting the bike away for the winter. I'm looking forward to getting some miles in with it.
