Re: 20K service cause of reverser failure?
+1 on the wire connections. While my symptom was a little different, reverse would only work for a few feet, and then needed to have a new press of switch and do a few more feet. As I was on a long trip and everything else was working I said I would take it yo MAX in New York when I got home.
Short of it is, they found loose connection wire, inserted same and have not had a reverse problem in last 20 K miles. They said wire connection was on the under side of bike.
