    Ah! Looks like you just gave me 5k more miles before I will mess with it then! Lol. Who knows, I may even have it sold by then and avoid it all together. Ha!

    yep, I got the 2013 model and when I saw that, I extended mine out...still good to go...I will be doing mine again late fall and 16,000 mile on this interval is fast approaching...have to do a lot of maintenance this fall; valve check, brake fluid change, air filter change (original air filter, still purring along but needs changed).
