Seriously? Just 216 units?

Say, anybody know WTF happened with the situation where the 675-triple was using oil at an alarming rate? It was supposedly near "universal" - as in ALL the 675s used it, and were possibly prone to running-out of oil while on moderate-to-long rides.

Anything ever come of that?

The dipstick is wrong? It's just a damn metal strip, how hard is that to get right?

Its.......A FACT!

Married women all over the world are waiting for the same recall. Seems they were told the dipstick was longer than it really was. "It meets specs, baby. Honest!"

That's what they get for telling a guy to make the thing six inches long, I guess.

Or maybe the buyer was formerly with NASA's Mars Lander program; and confused metric and standard.
