How many trouble free miles

Lots of talk and complaints of a few people with 2014's that have had repeated crankcase cracking , I've asked this on the other form but thought id try here also , so 2014 owners miles and any crankcase issues??

2014 here 26 inch tires , 400 miles no issues.

Just seems there are way more trouble free 2014's then issues but I could be wrong !

The people that have had problems will always have the loudest voices. Everyone that is happy and have had no problems don't usually speak up and just ride on.

Travis, you're a worry wart, LOL. Relax and enjoy your machine!! If it's gonna happen it will, only thing you can do now besides have fun is pull the engine and check the bolts. It could happen to any of us
