Man you must have got the sled built with Monday hangovers!!

My StxDX has over 5,000 trouble free miles on it. Not even a blown belt which has been somewhat common on these. I now have the Hurricane stock muffler flash done to it. Runs great!!

Parts are ordered and will be replaced under warranty. No doubt, they’ve been great.

Another 2 weeks of no riding however.
These type of small problems (although I understand this problem led to a much bigger one...) are something Cat's have always been known for...My F7 some small issues but never left me stranded...

So, this year, out of warranty, and too upside down to warrant a trade, I’ve got a tune and clutch work on it. Also bought hard side bags. If it works, I should love it!?

If not? Ugg!

Got the hard bags and clip them on for overnite stuff. Nice bags and a ton of storage when combined with my trunk and barrel bags.

Im staying stock. Like the sled more every time I fire it up.

Was your stock clutch a rattler or did you get a quiet one ?
