Default Third gear gone,2018 RKS

Going through the gears from a stop light on sunday afternoon and grabbed third and there was nothing there but hitting the rev limiter,went to the dealer today to get it in and was told they have four other bikes in for the same thing,also getting recall done.

Has anyone else heard of this problem?

Looking at your previous
posts, I'm not surprised you lost a gear.

no this is not fake news just looking for more info on what I was told.

seems to me from previous posts of yours, if you havn't heard of the problem you call it fake,

Do you ever think that if you havn"t heard of the problem it still may be a problem.
Just saying
