Check and see if frame is bent where lower front a-arms mount to frame. This area is prone to bend/tweek.

Yes. You will get that warning everytime it needs servicing. The only way to get it off is to have the dealer reset the computer. Mine has been saying it for about 6 months now....no biggie for it to say it. Be careful though...some dealers will charge in excess of $200 bucks just to reset computer. It only takes 1 minute to do.

Thats what i`m understanding.

Not a big deal, I`ll do all the oil servicing.

Thanks again.

OH...one thing I definately recommend doing regardless of what type of rider you are...... reinforce the frame and get skids. These frames have a weak spot and will bend at front a-arms and sometimes in the rear as well. If you need to know how...I'll post you a link.
