Problem with woodruff key

I have been away from this forum for a while now. Not done anything new with the bike.I have a serious issue . The woodruff key gave way last month. sent the bike to the workshop where it was replaced (under warranty) and they also told me the fuel pump needs to be replaced and is orderd (this too under warranty). got the bike back and was not able to use it much (about 120 kms / 75 miles) when the bike stalled again. All dead. no lights on the panel even. Sent it back to the workshop and was informed that the woodruff key is the problem again. they could not find anything wrong in he electrical. Now i am given to understand that this is a known problem and if the key wears out again the entire engine will have to be replaced . Anyone know about this?

unfortunately yes, there is another thread on this.

just do a search and hopefully you'll find it.

from what I remember from that thread it looks like you'll be getting a new engine soon, hopefully the new ones will have that problem corrected, but like the fuel pumps, i'm not holding my breath !

knock on wood, with 600 miles on mine all is well and I sure hope it stays that way. I know others have many more miles on these bikes, I am curious to how many of those bikes have had these issues?
