I have got about 3,500 miles on my G5 so far.Only problems have been an exhaust leak that has been defeating me so far (but I will win someday) and a dodgy fuel injector connector. A small price to pay considering it was one of the first bikes off the line.Aside from that it's been push the button and go.CJ
Was the fuel injector connector the cause of the problem with it on your way back from the Rally?
Well, lets see...When we removed the piece of tape that was used to keep the air filter box closed while I was stuck out on the road, we saw the lacquer was actually pulled off. This is tape that doesn't even pull indoor paint off, incredible.10 days later, I still can't ride, the lock is on back order with no estimate of when it will arrive, and WS will not replace the lid as "he shouldn't have put tape on it". I guess I could say the lock shouldn't have shattered after only 6 months and popping open the air filter box while on the road. I've had enough!
Well the problem is I paid a good £1500 more than the previous bullet with the promise of modern reliability and have had bits snapping off all over the place. Getting stuck on Dartmoor with the air filter box dangling open I had to get home somehow, and now RE will not honour their warranty because I used a piece of tape to keep it closed until I got home!I figured at worst a bit of tape may leave a blob of adhesive on the finish that would need to be cleaned off, not that the bikes lacquer would prove less durable than the tape! If I had available zip ties or string and they cut into the lacquer with as much ease I'd still not be getting any help from RE UK, they simply expect customers to put up with the quality and fix / upgrade poor parts themselves. That is simply the opposite to what was promised with this "new" generation of RE's.
