Default Check Your Vacuum Hose

The vacuum hose that connects to the base of the pet **** on my 06-1200C fell off yesterday and killed the engine. The engine burped once and then dropped dead. At first I didn't know WTF was going on. Under warranty, I called Dillon Brothers in Omaha (All Good People) and they picked it up pronto. In less than an hour they fixed my bike and I was off and running again. Make sure that hose is fully attached or you too will be saying WTF. I had the tech secure the hose on the nipple with a small zip lock. Don't want that to happen again.

That same thing happened to my 06 1200c when I was at a grand total of 78 miles on the odometer. Talk about pissed. I wanted to kick the chit out of the bike. Then they could not pick it up after 3:00pm ????? oh was I pissed.
They fixed it the next day.
