You're way off base bashing another vendor and then offering a "better" product in the future. I was considering PowerCell. Not any more.

My guess is that they have not been able to verify. I'm betting it fits. The only potential conflict would be the screen support mechanism getting in the way. The rest of the pod looks the same.

He said, All US deliveries of the 1290SA have been pushed off unti May. Something is amiss.

That's too bad. I just saw news of the BMW recall today. The 1150 rims were bomb proof. I built a few 21's myself. Very tough to lace, but once trued and tensioned they are extremely solid.

Deceleration control keeps throttle chops from locking the rear tire by adding just enough throttle to prevent. Electronic. Slipper clutch is standard.

I think I may have answered my own question. For 2015 they added a clamping ring and frame that snaps over the filter keeping it tight. The lid seal issue may be minor by comparison.
