Heck, I didn't know that! Maybe that's my (relatively slight) mileage decrease as well (and not the cruise control).

Wishful thinking, I think...

Interesting change of discussion...fuel mileage. I checked every tank fill, since May '10. This past year (since 15K service) dropped 5-8 MPG average and up to 10 or 12. Mentioned it to my dealer at Reneisance Motors in Tucson, he found nothing. I suspect either a computer change in fueling mixture much to do with the stumble of year one??? or the RIGHT hand. I believe in the latter!

renazco seat

has anyone raised the riders seat on their mts1200 to the same height as the passeneger seat? i could use the extra legroom plus this would provide the fore and aft movement that is much lacking. i have used renazco to raise other seats with very good results.

Ducati diag or similar service computer?

Does anyone have any updates on an available service computer for the Multi 1200 yet?

I would like to be able to do simple OBDII-like operations, like reset the service light, diagnosis and make minor adjustments (not reprogramming) myself. I read about "ducatidiag" but it does not work on the newer Mitsubishi CAN bus ECUs, only the older stuff, seems like 2010 and before.

I have read lots of posts on a similar topic but nothing recent and nothing solid - may of the posts I have seen say so-and-so is working on one, it will be out soon and the post is 6 months old.

I am trying to get to a point where I can do basic service myself without having to go to the dealer (especially since they closed the only dealer we had in town...)

Thx in advance, Des

Good luck with that. Pretty much why I sold mine.

It's such a great bike I would never sell it because I need a dealer a couple of times per year...

Tires

I got out on my Multi yesterday for a couple hundred miles, for the first time since last March! My last ride was coming back from west Texas, with a broken foot, tires showing the belts, and a nail in the rear! For future reference, I will never remove a cast at home so I can go on a motorcycle trip! I was able to limp it home that last 100 miles after seeing the nail, and made it to a BMW dealer just outside of Houston. My tire choices were limited, but they strongly recommended the Dunlop Sportmax Q2's, which they had in my size. I got home with my new tires, and the bike has been parked since. I took my first ride on the Dunlops yesterday, and they were fantastic! Supple, loads of feedback, and grip! I can't wait to get a set on my HP2S. If you've got a Multi that lives on the pavement, I'd strongly recommend these Dunlop Q2's!

Quick question.

I have a 2012 Multi. It says in the manual that the speedometer reading is inflated by 8%.

Does anyone know whether or not that means the odometer readout is also being inflated by 8%?

If so, that would not be a good thing.

Q2's are great in the dry. The wet, not so much.

It is not, only the speedometer.

Almost all manufacturers build in a degree of deliberately optimistic speedometer readings (it's actually a law in some places). But the odometer is fine. Remember, they're electronic, not mechanical, and it's easy enough to feed a good signal to the odo, and then a signal with a correction factor to the speedo.

Cheers

What's the "normal" price everyone is paying for the 2013 MTS? Are the dealers abe to get MSRP or is there any negotiating going on?

I'm drooling over getting one of these bad boys...
