A couple of weeks ago I was test riding a couple of the 2011 bikes on the Fuel demo tour at my dealer. One of the bikes was a 2011 Kingpin and the other I rode was a 2011 Cross roads. After riding both a couple of times I noticed the tranny in the Crossroads made more noises and clanking than the transmission in the Kingpin. While they both should be the same I was bother by the higher transmission noise on the X bike. One bike had about 600 miles on it and the other about a 1000 miles. So not sure why the difference but there was something there.
