Picked up the bike today. Dealer said they adjusted the throttle bodies and fixed it. Riding the bike I'm now finding that there is an occasional hesitation off idle and the fuel economy has dropped. Before the service I was getting a fuel economy reading of 3.8 to 4 liters per hundred kilometers at a steady 100 km/h. That has now increased to about 4.5 liters per 100 km/h. I'll ask them to adjust it again when I take it in to get the heated grips installed.

I wish they had just friggin left it alone. It ran better and got better gas mileage before the first "Mandatory" service.

Same issue for 6900 miles here. Today I had the dealer adjust the headstock and it's fixed :)! The dads bike is doing the same thing as well. I suspected the rotors as well but it was not it.

Edit: I could not feel any play with the forks in the air before the adjustment.

Go to google or bing, and use the following search query:

site:advrider.com 599070 search terms

It's less than perfect, but 599070 is the thread number, site:advrider.com limits results to this board, and replace "search terms" with what you want to search for. Here is an example:

Does anyone make a replacement shock for the non-XC yet? The stock one has way, way too much rebound damping and no adjustments. I can push down on the rear and it takes 15 seconds for it to come back up!

Has anyone worked on the forks yet? The shock is so bad that you can't tell what the forks are doing.

I have had the forks of my roadie apart a few times (almost 10 I reckon) trying to sort out a bouncing issue that the dealer now tells me is caused by "the little waves in the road".
Swapping oils (I've tried 5, 7.5, 10[stock] and 15w) and springs (i've had stock and 0.95kg.mm in there) does bring about some changes and IMO the 5w oil in the front is a pretty good compromise. I've not pulled the cart out of the front but suspect it will be standard showa kinda stuff.
Maybe there is something in a swap of rear shock or at least a valving/oil viscosity change in the bum

For rear shock, check with Jay @ www.sasquatchrider.com 208-9682112. Have one soon for XC - not sure about non XC model. j

The service guy said that this is the fourth XC he's seen with the same issue.
Mine has the same issue as well. It's been in the shop for 8 days now. Still not fixed. Last I heard, they had the throttle bodies off looking for air leaks. None were found. The shop is "waiting on Triumph"...

Sorry to hear others are having the same problems. Not good!

After a two month wait my guard came in. Almost looks out of place on the dirty bike.

That'll work but so does clicking on "Search This Thread" at the top of the page. But the Google way will let you search for 3 or less letters.

Has anyone installed a Fenda Extrenda without the screws that were furnished. If so is the tape holding it OK?

When I put put mine on my V-Strom, I didn't use the screws. I scuffed the heck out of the fender and the Extenda where they meet. Then I applied a heavy duty adhesive/sealer that I got at work and clamped them together. Several years later it was still holding strong.

Thanks

I use Google all the time to search the site but I could never figure out how to search just a single thread - I used the entire URL and that didn't work so I'm glad there is a way....
