I'm glad to hear they took care of you.

Please do let us know if it fixes the issue. It is interesting that the new pump has a new part number.

Your V-Strom doesn't do much of anything.

True. I tried to buy one for my daughter, but she said she did not want a bike that was ugly and slow. I thought it would be good for her to putt around San Luis Obispo.
