I'm curious why it just happens on a few new rockets and not others. I'm hopeful that the new downloads will remedy this. I guess I'll know after Thursday. I live relatively close to a dealer but I feel bad for the guy that has a 200 plus mile journey every time he has to get something fixed.

it is only going to happen on the new rockets 2020 up

the rockets 2019 and down had a simple three wire system that failed for a lot of rockets
2020 up has probably got a 6 wire set up (cars) that works with a back up voltage for example one side works from 0 to 100%or voltage 0 to 5 volts while the other side of the switch works from 100 to 0% this enables the ecu to cross reference and compare to c if there is a problem and if one side goes the ecu can get u home with the check engine light on.
also the throttle motor has a similar system.
i am talking about systems in general drive by wire

Although I don't have the problem, reading this makes me question dependability of the company/bike. Is it a matter of time for other 2020 bikes? Boy the Honda was dependable.
