Yeah, still under warranty. I going to take it back to the dealer, and let 'em look at it. That's why I paid the big bucks for a brand new one--this service. I'm having to stomp on the shifter to down shift. Never had it this bad in the over one dozen motorcycle I've owned. I doubt it's due to overheating. I don't think the engine ever overheated. It was felt really hot because weather has been super hot lately.
Problem is that dealership is 1 hour away. They wouldn't give me an opinion over the phone. They just want me to bring it in. I need to get this sorted out before my Colorado trip. I would hate to be slamming on the shifter up and down the Rocky Mountains.
