I was hoping at 19k I would be safe but some say at 25k they had a problem. I have a 2013, did the new slipper clutch help or do you think anything was changed in the transmission on the later year bikes? Sounds like very few have a problem but difficult to tell the true numbers. Good luck turtleman.
(ok, just read the posts 2 topics below and got some questions answered).
