    Wow that sucks. I have had (2) Titans (1st gen) and never had any major problems with them. My current Titan has 250K on it and is going strong.

    Touch Wood Jim.

    Apparently its a 2017/18/19 model year issue. From what I have read, they expect alot of them (17/18/19s) to Shit the bed eventually. Just have to hope if you have one that it happens under warranty. That said, If your's has 250k on it then I suspect you are home free, it would have happened by now.

    Well I got hosed by the seller. Seems to be a theme with me and MT01 owners. He offered to bring it to my place since he was on a run to pick up another bike, next day he says , sorry, too bad, you missed it, he sold it to someone else. He can stuff the Vmax where the sun dont shine. This makes it the 5th MT01 ive gotten screwed on. 3 sold from under me and 2 were miss represented and I wasted 2 x 15 hour round trips, fuel etc. Maybe im not meat to have one.

    No honor or integrity. Fuckin' hate people like that.

    Don't force it. Sometimes things happen for a reason.

    Firmly believe in deal karma....started buying parts and bikes in the '80s when it was merely ads in the back of Road Racing World and such, nothing but a hope and prayer really sending a check to another state and hoping you got the part they advertised shipped back to you in some sort of reasonable time frame- all based on trust really. Lucky to have a phone number, sure as heck weren't pictures or videos or anything like that! Besides having what I'd consider a solid upbringing, I always figured no sense in trying to screw anyone, it'll just come back around and bite me when I least expect it.

    Have had people fly in to buy bikes, cars, etc and drive them home. You better be damn sure the vehicle is sound to let someone fly or drive a significant distance or make sure they are very clear the condition and they understand it's their roll of the dice if the vehicle has any potential concerns about making it back on its own.

    Hang tough, right deal will come along eventually. One thing I have learned, there's always another deal....
