Salesman in a dealership asked me a long time ago why I wouldn't buy an ES. Don't need it and unproven YAMAHA technology is just more stuff to break. Technology on moving, vibrating vehicles is not a good thing, I said. We have screwed up '13 cruise controls (reflash ECU), and now the electronical suspension problems begin. Not to be a naysayer, and realizing one report does not a trend make, I believe we'll see more and more of problems like these as the bikes get a little age and more than a few miles on them.
Then throw in the fact that YAMAHA has apparently made it impossible for us to fix our problems. Now it seems you have to visit the dealerships' service departments. Good luck with that- like JoeBagOfDonuts Yamaha Tech has any clue about anything electronic. As much as I have been lusting for a '13 with a cruise control I think I'll pass. As long as my low tech '07 continues to keep me out of the dealerships I'll continue to ride it.
