I really wouldn't worry about it..this thread is about a few (very, very, small percentage) of GS/HP2 riders who have had there EWS system fail for one reason or another. The issue that is important here is that is the system doing what it is supposed to (keep bike from being lifted) and is it worth the effort for something that could and has stranded a few of our bretheren in the middle of nowhere) Most all riders have never had and never will have any problems with there bikes as far as EWS is concerned..but we (speaking for everyone) would like the option to have it removed. Ride away..I'm leaving on a 7K mile trip in a few weeks..you won't find me hesitating to go cause of this.
