First 2000 miles
Let me say after approx 2K miles I am in love. This bike rules. The sound, the torque, the looks, the imperfections, the sound. Did I mention the sound?
Couple things - I loaded a base map for the Akrapovic full system and it made a huge difference in driveability. What used to be a lurching barking beast is now a relatively civilized bike. But now, when starting cold it takes three tries before it will run without stalling. It also makes kinda funny (disturbing) engine sounds during those first couple tries. Any ideas?
I need tires also and i'm thinking of going from the current 180 to the stock 190/55/17.
Front brake pads are shot so i guess i'll replace with stock unless you guys know of decent aftermarket units.
I'm trying to get some maintenance done such as chain clean/lube and suspension adjustments but the weather is so bloody nice I just keep jumping on and riding! How often are you all clean/lubing the chain?
thanks in advance
