News Update: 'Checked out the rods in the '09 SERG 110 this AM and the front rod has 2x the lateral play as the rear.
My Tech said that he didn't hear anything either, but it wouldn't have been long before noise and failure.
'Spoke at length with My Tech, Service Mgr., & General Mgr., seperatly, and they all talked me out of upgrade parts for one reason or another, except My Tech, when I asked, gave the ok for the high tensile cylinder studs.

My Tech has finished installing the '10 and later fairing brackets and the HD cartridge fork kit.
'Should have all the kinks worked out when I get a new crank...
