Brendan,

I noticed that too when I first got my bike. It was a demonstrator and had 950kms on the clock. I was quite worried at first but it seemed to disappear after a week or two and I don't have the issue anymore. I can't explain it.

Japako,

The risers I use are some cheap generic ones I got from a bike shop just to experiment with. They have several "spacers" so you can adjust the overall lift but I couldn't really get more than 25mm before getting problems with the cables and hoses when at each sterring lock.

Cheers

That's good to know, thanks Robbo60!

I'm assuming starting the S10 after running dry, wasn't a problem?

The local dealer that is also the Givi importer decieded to give and attach every XT1200Z a free of charge set ( top box and paniers) of the new Givi adventure cases ( http://www.givi.it/Side-hardbags/Mon...TRK33N-TREKKER). Yesterday I went in to the local dealers shop and came out with the new set all attached.
What a bloody change !
I am for one a very happy customer and give my dealer a big thumbs up.
Yep I'd have to say they are the biggest disappointment with the bike, the stock Yamaha side cases and top box are pure shite - the locking mechanism is a bastard and very fiddly to get the boxes locked down properly. I wish I would have waited and looked at the rest of the market first.

I wonder if Yamaha Australia will replace the crap luggage they sold down here ?

The other thing I didn't like at all is the calsci screen - barn door look alike and now sitting in my shed gathering dust, I've heard people say function over form but that thing is plain ugly and detracts from the bikes overall looks. I've gone the larger Yamaha screen and the excellent waspworks screen adjusting mechanism. Perfect :-)

Sounds good but I would like to see wet weight instead.

10hp should be doable on a standard bike, as long as it doesn't kill the bottom. They should try for 50hp for a RRR. not 10.

The suspension should be good, but how much better than standard?

I know I might be sounding all negative but it's not a huge difference, except maybe weight.

However if this was really the 2013 model in disguise, that would be different. Good tweaks although I'd personally loose the seat.

Cheers
Graham

Keep in mind that this bike will be used in races (unlike the World Crosser), the first of those the Sardegna Rally in May. I can't see the use of a 150hp rally bike, even in the hands of Cantanese

I DID have to push after 60km on reserve once
That was in very heavy traffic (jam) conditions though...

The distance you will be able to cover once in reserve is fully speed dependent. The Super does have a huge reserve but how far it will go depends on you.

The difference in fuel consumption is incredible on that bike. My median speed on the highways as around 140kmph and my KM/L is around 12km per liter. When I ride with my wife she likes riding at a more comfortable (read "safer") speed on her bike of 100kmph to 110kmph and my fuel consumption suddenly goes to around 30km/L.

Not only am I safer, I safe a lot of money when she rides besides me

The other day at 150kmph+ I was down to 9KM/L.

One time I was nowhere near a gas station, went on reserve and I rode well over 90km at a speed of 80kmph to 90kmph without a problem. Had I raced there I probably would have been out of fuel 30km later.

No problem, just filled it up and away. I doubt it is likely to get BONE dry,...

I am not sure how you calculate your km/l. At between 9-12 is pretty bad. For me on stock I had travelled 330km at between 150-170km/h and put in 22litres. 330km divded by 22litres i get 15km/l.

Quite a few of us have been bugging Rick and he and Al take it all in stride.

I have ordered the 115 Litre side cases to avoid a top box and keep the weight down low. One thing you little b*st*rds forget is for those of us 6'4 tall and 245 all of our clothes are XL and if we carry a pair of running shoes they half fill up a side case.

One of the really nice features of Jesse Bags is that you can order them keyed to match your other bikes Jesse Bags. All three of our Jesse equipped Bikes have the same key and that just simplifies life on the road.

You can order your Jesses now for delivery.

thanks! that makes me think I'll in future reset my consumption meter if I run into reserve and am far away from a filling station
