Play on left hand switch gear assembly.
« on: May 29, 2017, 05:42:53 PM »
Hello guys.

I have a 15 plate with 3k miles. I have had the bike for about 3 months and about 500 miles.

I have noticed that there is approx 4 to 5mm play on the left hand assembly (relative to the fixed handlebar). Does any one else have this and is it deemed to be "normal".

Obviously, everything which can be tightened is tight.

My 2015 bike is the same - 5mm-ish free play. Been like that for the (nearly) 2 years & 9K miles I've had the bike so I don't think it's anything to worry about.

Mine was the same.  Dealer fixed it FOC at the last service.

That's good to know Scott. I am booked into the dealer on Thursday morning, hopefully they can sort it.

Had the same issue on my 2017 after approx 1000 miles - dealer was happy to sort it - only took 5 mins and seems fine now.

this is like a two second fix you need to pull back the grip there is a torque T15 all you need to do is do it up a bit.

see the photo
After over thirty years behind the bars, I’ve still not done it all or seen it all.

Excellent pointer; thanks very much indeed. That has saved me a 3 hour round trip to the dealer.

Hey no probs but 3 hour round trip could have been fun.
