    Do you wear a helmet? If so get a Sena Bluetooth system. All of your music right in your helmet. No ridiculously loud music to share with everyone you pass like a typical Harley.

    Same thing happened to my 2011 RT while on vacation. Take it to the dealer. That's the only fix I know. I was as well disappointed that my float was as unreliable as the strips.

    My 2011 burned a little oil but abruptly stopped at 12,000 miles when the fuel float stopped working. It's a machine. Things break sometimes.
