Went in to my local HD dealer yesterday for a face to face with the service tech who will be preforming the recall repair. while i was there another tech was preforming the 1000 mile service on a 06 Streetbob, after changeing the fluides he started the bike on the service lift for it to warmup. after sitting there ideling for 3-4 min. the bike jumped into gear by itself, no one was near the shifter. engine stoped when it happened but if it had not been tied to the lift it could/would have been a bad mess. Tech said the same thing happened to a 06 Wide glide last week sitting on the jifffy stand in the parking lot, it fell over into the HD shop owners new caddy lacky and done $3000 of damage to the caddy and over $1000 the the Glide.
So it's not just the N light that's the problem it's the trany itself.
They had me on the list to be the first repair but after talking to the service tech [ they've only done the repair in class not real life yet ] i'll let a few other bikes go ahead of mine, not in a hurry to be their lab rat so to speak.
MoCo will replace the trans lube with Syn3 at no extra cost if you already have it installed.

Interesting!

I'm waiting til they get experience. Besides, mine's just sitting in the garage for the winter anyways so it's not like I'm missing anything.

Now that's scary. Fortunately, my riding routine only has me in neutral twice without the clutch pulled in: on warm-up and when opening the garage to pull in. Both times I'm off the bike (which is a perfect opportunity for some damage from the defect), but - thankfully - I can alter both of those routines to eliminate the risk. Otherwise, I'm a hands-on/clutch pulled/in gear guy. If it happens while in the shop, well, it's on them.

I'm going to wait a while till the wrenches get some more experience as well.

I called my local HD service department and inquired about the recall progress. I indicated to him I wanted to wait as I wasn't having any problems. He then told me to get on the list to have the recall work performed as it was a serious issue, and 06 Dynas were jumping into gear from neutral as described above.
