    Sticky: Poll: 2006 RT No failure!!

    My RT hasn't had a failure at all. It has always been a little out of calibration, but I don't mind since it's out in my favor. When it says I have zero miles remaining, I can go another 60 easily.

    The oil level system will only work with the bike at a standstill, warmed up. If the side stand or center stand are down, it will not give you a reading.
