    If the clutch was a foot pedal, and the person rode the clutch with his foot resting on it all of the time, I can see misuse or abuse, but not really in this case though. But we don't know the rest of the story either. Could be possible he's pulling a little trailer but even then, drag? tsk tsk.

    However, I agree when you operate a vehicle outside the specs. your on your own. Flying flags does at high speeds does add more drag.

    Should Ford/Dodge/etc. fix a 1/2 ton truck transmission if you pull a trailer outside the limits? imo, nope. Same with the bike.
    If it's got a towing package, and if it's been used as non commercial, maybe yes.

    I owned a '01 Chevy cargo, express 3500 that was used commercial delivery, and the issues I needed fixed weren't transmission related, but they did replace the fuel pump twice under warranty.

    Wouldn't the mfr. need to prove such a thing as drag or misuse?

    I read an article on that. Everyone knows a a pirate, UK or state flag provides less drag than a US or confederate flag.

    OP article has what HD is saying about the wind drag.

    Even a 3500 chevy. if you exceed the gross vehicle weight and tow/haul weight the mfg. may not cover breakage related to that activity. Commercial or non commercial use. doesn't matter. why would a mfg. be responsible for repairs if the vehicle is designed to tow 26,000lbs, and the consumer constantly towed over the limit (40,000lbs)?

    and yes, HD would need to demonstrate and prove the flags caused strain beyond the recomended operatiional limits.

    Bets on how quickly they change their mind once word of this spreads among all the Harley Owners?
