I'm not the tech expert here, just providing what free advice I can
afford... Make sure you take the bike to the dealer making sure they
note your complaint.  That way, even if they don't fix it before the
warranty expires at least you'll have documentation of transmission
symptoms prior to the end of warranty, so when the transmixer guts
dump at warranty expire plus 1 month you'll have something to back up
a warranty claim.
