CEL and oil leak after 5,000 miles?
Argh. I have just over 5,00 miles on a brand new 2011 Daytona and the CEL keeps coming on. I took it to the dealer and was told it was the "butterfly valve" in exhaust (EXUP I am assuming). If I touch the cables I can feel them move when I turn the ignition on and off, and if I squeeze both together with my fingers and turn ignition on, off, on, off eventually the cables don't "bind" up/move much and the CEL finally goes out. I know this is an issue and have read all the posts, but my question is should this be happening with only just over 5,000 miles on a never seen rain, ridden only 1 summer, super clean bike? I'm just wondering if others have this CEL so soon. The dealer said that they can lub it up at the 6,000 service, but I am just surprised that I am seeing a CEL this early.
Also...my clutch case cover gasket is leaking oil as well (since new). I was actually over a 1/4 quart low after 2,500 miles (even after the first service around 600 miles). I have a great dealer and they said this is a known issue as well and will replace it. I was just wondering if anyone else had these problems so early.
I only posted this as I am surprised to have these issues with so few miles. Hopefully I am the only one!
It's not a "Rice-Burner"
