Another recall letter received.
:cheesy:


"Due to a software error in the instrument cluster module, if the instrument cluster temperature is below freezing, the display unit may generate an error message and shortly thereafter, go blank, until the next ignition cycle when the temperature is above freezing. If the warning is ignored and the vehicle is operated, the speedometer would not be visible as required by local regulations. Note: Our testing indicates that due to the self-healing characteristics of the instrument cluster, this condition can only occur at cold start-up when the instrument cluster temperature is below freezing. Please visit your local H-D dealer to have the software updated in the instrument cluster module."


I've actually had this happen the other week from cold-start when I was fitting the panniers. The screen went off, then came back on again after a few seconds. No biggy really and who really needs a 'speedometer' anyway.... ?

That's software for you! Whiles it does and, whiles it doesn't. Will still be a worthwhile update at service. (y)

The larger font update may well be part of this one too?

Mine in or Saturday the 09/04. 1000 mile service and the two recalls. Spoke with one of the techs and was asked to take the pannier rails off as they ware not HD parts. His reasoning was they had never seen the make of pannier rails and it could push them over the time specified. Resulting in me being charged. Think he just trying to cover his and my arse. So the rails are off ready to go.

Just the sub zero degree ride over the M62 at 08:00 on Saturday morning to look forward to.

Does anyone know what difference the recalled seat base has to the original? Does it involve some form of metal this time perchance?

Re; luggage. If they, the dealership workshop, remove something and put it back on again, they're the last point of interaction and therefore liable should it,,, fall off. I put them on, I'll take them off again and then refit them, by which point I'll be a Geevi/Givi fooking expert! 🆒 Sigh...

Ride safe fella, layer up well and grip heaters set to maximum/11. Just think how sweet your MoCo product will be running post recalls. Yay!

I know what you mean about becoming an expert. I fitted the panniers had to remove them to fit the alarm. Re-fitted and had to remove them for the recall. Getting to the stage I can remove the panniers rails from the bike quicker than the panniers from the rails.

I did the 1000 mile service myself at 500 miles, never been a fan of 1000 mile first service. Probably due to being of an age where I can remember so crap tolerance and materials coursing some longevity issues. So bike is running great. Another oil change won’t hurt though.

As for the M62 on Saturday morning. I’ll be wearing everything I own.

Just had it confirmed by the tech servicing my bike. It’s just a new grab rail. Not the seat base. So I could of left the pannier rails on as the H & B back box mount replaced the grab rail.

I had a fumble about today and it feels to me like the rails in question; are held on by four 10mm nuts, front and rear. I must investigate further tomorrow and actually try and remove those plastic bastards. As it would seem far easier to do that than remove those pannier rails, #Givi.

This can't come soon enough, now getting the dreaded mode error, intermittently, as it's a software glitch which needs ironing out. Tomorrow is nearly here and it's ironing day.... 🍺

All updates and reworked grab rail completed. Free coffee and talking bikes, quite an enjoyable morning. Yon Dirtglide is running sweet and much fun was had in sport mode on the way hame. Edinburgh Harley were saying there's probably going to be a revised battery on the cards, as the one fitted struggles a little at times... They will let me know as and when they do. I'll be back for it's first dealer service sometime in June, I dropped the oil at 500 miles and changed it, so not worried about going over the 1000, as it will be well over that by the end of our tour happening in early May. Love that bike, super comfy, fast if you want it to be and the handling is really bloody good too. I can't fault it. 🆒
