not sure if this has been confirmed, but is the 1290 speedometer also 8% generous (like the 1190)?

great feedback! thanks!

from photos it seems that the extra 7ltrs are carried mostly at the lower part of the tank, so fully fuelling up should not be a negative

delay after starting

any of the lucky guys that already have their 1290's know if one has to also wait around 5sec after starting for the damping to set itself, as is the case with the standard 1190?

Acc1 + acc2

Based on a very poor quality draft copy of the wiring diagram, there will be ACC1+2 both in rear and front of the 1290SA, just like the 1190

Could you maybe check what the RPM are at 120km/h? (the 6th gear is the only difference between the 1190 gearing)
