The 990 isn't imnune either but some of the 950 don't show problems for a while. Usually you get lots of warning. It sounds like it's grinding rocks when it "functions". Also starting it in gear tends to aggravate. The problem is the device self-distructs everytime it functions -if it doesn't function it doesn't self-destruct. Only one bike I have heard of didn't give warning. When it does go the enging will not turn over.
I will give you a washer that can be used to get you home that can be installed trail-side. Just let me know.
