Wow, that's a brazen move. Somebody really wanted something, that's for sure.

Hope this gets sorted out and they add barriers up front next time.

Re: KTM - I didn't fully read the article but were the bikes announced as to when they'll hit the stores? I wouldn't mind the 390. Good enough for a highway jaunt and to boot around in the city.

I was there on Saturday to get new tires and it didn't look like anything much was missing from the front showroom. I wonder what was taken.

Who would do such a thing? Everybody loves Kevin!

With business better than ever and him being the best and only person that actually knows how to get motorcycles fixed I don't see any logic why this would happen to the best motorcycle shop in the business!

There's always some idiot that blames a shop for their own mistakes. That and people are generally dumb.

Question: If either selection on the turn signal switch turns on both sides, is that something a broken turn signal switch would do? Could converting to LED signals somehow do that? I took apart the PO's wiring completely and I can't find any shorts in it or any damage to the factory harness so I'm stumped.

I did some digging and it has to do with how the bike only has one turn signal indicator on the dash. That combined with the lower resistance of the LED's allows it to backfeed through the cluster indicator, a couple of diodes and moving a wire should sort it out.
