Me Too, actually two weeks. No codes. Bought it used. 14000 miles on 2008 RS. Idle is poor but runs strong. Lots of whine and "gear/belt noise" until I loosened the belt. Better Now. One tail light out. This Spider has Givi hard side cases and top case. Had to do major dismantle of Givi system to replace "ONE" bulb. What totally thoughtless design! I have had 10 different Motorcycles over a period of 60 years and have never had even one into a dealership for service and I have done everything from major engine overhaul to straightening front struts. Advice for the Spyder is to take it to the"Dealer" for everything, even though the dealer probably knows less about mechanics than I do. I Know, that is not being modest, but I have built and serviced race cars for 40 years, so I have leaned a few things. I believe the Spyders will take more than average service but they are FUN when they re right.

Good move on loosening the belt, most people tighten it like an A string
