I picked up a manual last Friday. Weather and work has kept me down to < 100 miles as of today. Nice riding posture but I am concerned that the natural position of right foot will keep the brake pedal in play, More on that to come.
Not too surprisingly there seems to be a supercharged effect right around 4300 rpm with lots of roll on power. Due to self inflicted break in protocol I won’t go much over 4K until 300 miles.
As this is my first bike in many years without a fairing i was concerned about buffeting but in low 60s temps dressing with layers yields a comfortable ride.
Shifting is much smoother than my 2018 AT. Gears seem to fall in line w no real persuasion needed.
I am a fan so far.
Do you have the maintenance manual? We haven’t been able to get one yet and I want to know where the crankcase vent is located.
Also, under the left side of the engine right above where the 2 to 1 exhaust collector is, there is a hose barb with nothing on it. Does yours have a hose connected there?
