That sucks! Any idea what could have caused it?

Did your Take boxes come with the trust washer between C3 and C4 installed or not?

Well finally got to ride it put 30 minutes on it. Runs and shifts very smooth much much more power than the 170 before. After all that how could one not at least try to run it up a little bit lol.. the day was very windy my old 170 wouldn't had cracked a 100 and the ground fatherz 210 did this in under half the distance and me weighing 232 lb. I was running no fairings and a jacket that felt like a pearachute. Regardless that ride wasn't for that and that wa's far from stretched out. Worked on the clutch a little might can ride it tomorrow

500 miles down on the grom fatherz 210... today was a solid 50-60 miles 25 all highway.. temp today was 80-81.. held speed of 75ish... up to a few blast too 110... she got a tad hot lol... my koso dash showed 170. Probably closer to 230... each time it cooled back down to 154 on the dash or probably 194ish... not bad to still be running no oil cooler lol..

Looks like you are having the same problem with the speedo as I was having when I installed my takegawa 5 speed. One of the install instructions mention to put a small washer under the speed sensor to increase the height of the sensor, you don't need that washer if you remove the washer the speed will work ok.

So when is the 210 kit coming out for production sales and what other hardware you have to get such as HD crank/rod from Finbro or Kitaco, Koso 34mm throttle body or Koso 34mm throttle body, ECM PCV or Aracer, etc, clue the followers in on the prep they need to do before receiving/buying your 210 kits.
