Keep the grin going Mikey74 as I got the call last thursday. I drove 3 hours round trip to check it out. For the positives the blue is a nice color, the orange peel effect was not. Freaking pacific bikes at wallmart don't even have orange peel paint! I picked up on the seat and there was at least 1mm of play in the rear shock reducers :nono: . It shipped with the rp23 and I sure hope it's truly better or should I say as durable as the rp3 as it's a bit smaller and the propedal on off switch was waaay to loose. The 07 talsas RLC looked quite sweet if I do say so myself beautiful dark grey. The shop owner got on the phone with Fox and Fox is sending a new reducer kit. Hopefully this makes it tight cuz they'll have to pull that cash from my dead hands until it is. Hey, maybe it's supposed to be loose what the hell do I know?,....but me don't think so. I may be a bit anal but 3500.00 is a lot of cabbage for a bike that is not right. Anyway you might want to check this out on yours. Hopefully yours will be just fine. This was a small by the way.

RP3 vs RP23

I have the RP23 on my ML, and the "loose" feeling you're talking about for the ProPedal lever is not really an issue; this play is completely normal. It does click into position with a very positive detent, and doesn't pop out or become dislodged once it's there; some people had this problem with the RP3. I've been using the lever a lot, and I'm really happy with the shock overall. There is a very noticable difference between on/off settings, and I think a substantial improvement over the RP3. Also the lever itself feels much more sturdy and better machined.

Sorry to hear about the other woes. Hopefully you get it sorted soon! I had a bit of a wait also, neurotically checking my email every 3 minutes, but it was well worth the nail-biting! The bike absolutely rails!

Mikey Mike, trust me, it wil be worth the wait. Just treat yourself to foreplay and read the posts and see the ML spec builds etc............... It was heaven seeing the frame in the flesh the first time, had never seen a MotoLite frame etc in the flesh, seen some great things in the flesh :eek: , but this rated up there also......................

The wait makes it worth it, its all about the chase generally, but the catch is worth it on this one............

Let us know when it arrives, along with pics..................:thumbsup:

One time my brother ordered a Ventana El Salt and it arrived with a dent in the top tube. That was a real let down, he was all like: "welp, back to square one!" He was right too. Another 3 or 4 weeks before they were able to get him the replacement. I'm sure you will have much better luck though. :-|

*just messing with ya. it will be here before you know it...unless you are like me and every day feels like a year because you constantly wonder if "today is the big day."

No effing way... it'll be agony until your frame hits home.

It'll be like watching paint dry on the wall or a more accurate description will be that it'll be like if would have sent to hell in the company of Mr. T.

However... when you got it, it'll be like spending two weeks at the French Riviera with Elisha Cuthbert, all expenses paid. :thumbsup:

Oh Mikey I forgot to tell you. It only took three weeks for it to come in and the weeks flew.

Patience, all good things(especially Titus-things;) ) come to those who wait. Seems to me delivery times are much better then a few months ago especially if you're getting rp23 and 07 Fox Talas trinkets with the new motolite.:thumbsup:

Mikey I am in the same boat my friend...been waiting now for just over a month. I am told it should be here in a couple of days....but believe me, without this TSG (titus support group) I don't know how I would have survived.

Question for those of you who have just recieved your ML....I specifically orderd mine with an 07 talas rlc but didn't really "ask" for the RP23.....what are the chances thats what will be coming on it? it sure would be nice!

Thanks for the support folks, I'm sure it'll be here soon.

Do the new ones come with a new version of the RP3 then? The demo bike I rode had a standard RP3; What is the difference?

All this waiting is just giving me time to question my purchase and look around at other options, but you folks have convinced me to stick with the Motolite...

In theory, you should get an RP23 instead of the older RP3. I got my ML almost the last week of June, Titus informed me that they did not have the RP23´s in stock as yet, I see some ML´s with them now though. So you should get the RP23

Still a little concerned whether or not to go for something with 6 inches of travel instead....hmmmmm decisions eh?

The three ML frames that my friends and I got all had RP23. The chances are that you should be getting it as well.
