I am doing a trip with my Dad this year so no-go on Colorado.

My first thought was Ga because there seems to be a lot of Ga Teneres on the ST forum, but common sense would say the best place for a SouthEast rally would be Deals Gap or Suches, Ga. Deals more than Suches, but either would be moto-cicular heaven.

For a more out of the way place and to pull more people in I would add Sparta, NC to the list. Been to several different rallies there over he years

Fully loaded and 2-up in an off camber turn and you might get a different result on the right side...BTDT...YMMV.

I have 2300 miles so far and decided to use the T mode. Ya I really never used it yet.

My opinion, take it as it is- being a lowly 300 or so poster. While in T mode it feels like the clutch is in constant feather mode. Like it is not fully let out. I know I know in theory that would burn out your clutch and heat up your engine. But the engineers did something with the clutch to be able to create this T mode. As when you do the clutch mode it effects the T mode enough to disengage it. So somehow I feel the engineers created a way to have a constant slightly engaged clutch without ill effect.

Ya burn me now since I am such a newbie. But from my experience it feels like a clutch is engaged somewhat in all gears in T mode.

No The butterflies are lagging your input a bit and smoothing it out. So it sort of feels the same except the revs build slower than a slipping clutch. Good for rough off road stuff where you don't want too many accidental power deliveries OR with a pillion when the helmet bumping gets a bit much...

he he yep I agree with you. I just feel it has something to do with the clutch mode being effective on how they engineered the T mode.

T mode is cool and I started using it while riding with my Daughter. Yes less head bump..

Wait, we think T mode is nothing but a clutch slipping exercise?

I use T mode 90% of the time. It is way better in the city with all the bump in the road. It is just smoother, and I don't need the full power of S mode.

It is a different story on twisty roads.

I was one up and have the preload just about maxed out front and rear. I would get a quick jab to the ribs if I rode quickly enough to scrape a peg 2 up.

Nicolas,


I think most are kinda' apprehensive to answer because, without a pic (or some point of reference), it's hard to tell what bolts you are asking about. And, I'm sure nobody wants to give you bad torque values, because of the possibility of damage to you or your bike.

Then again, these guys are not really used to a whole lotta' serious questions, in this thread, because nothing on the bike seems to break or malfunction. So, unless you want pics of girls in bikinis, with captions pertaining to pluric...or pics of some alternate lifestyle parade, with references to me or Dafoole (also usually posted by pluric)...you're kinda' SOL.



*** I have a feeling you're talking about the "engine bracket bolts". However, without being sure, I'm kinda' apprehensive to give any torque values. See if you can get a pic, or a 'fiche reference, and I'll see if I can help.

Last couple days I tried to use T mode on my commute through the city (Yokohama/Tokyo). It is smooth but it basically feels like I'm on a gutless bike and I hate the lag when I twist the throttle to go NOW through a gap in traffic.

Can't wait to get the flash done.

How are you two doing? No judgement, just hope all is well and I'm sorry I missed your parade.
I figure no one would know more about the proper torque for nuts.
