cruise control slack is covered by warranty...however, I haven't found a dealer yet that adjusts it correctly. do it yourself...it's easy, simple to do. and you will get the exact setting thay you may prefer. Most bikes need at least four turns out....to take up the cable slack. I had to adjust mine to 4.5 turns...and now I have zero lash on the cruise set. ride safe.
My 01 did the same thing, drop 5 MPH and then go.
Just got my new 04 last week and she is spot on.
I guess they heard us. Easy adjust if you want to
or the dealer will go it for you.
Boy that vent makes a lot of difference here in
