any chance you got the speed brain sticker set too?
IIRC, I have a sticker set for the rear and number plates. I can send pics if interested.

Fairly new to this bike having purchased a 2010 a few months ago with 1800 miles and 50 hours on the clock. After 20 hours of riding, put the bike in for some minor warranty repairs and its second oil change. The bike was returned to me with what I felt was excessive clutch drag with a pretty strong bang from neutral into first. Long story short, after a complete teardown of the clutch pack and replacement of the thrust bearing (under warranty), the clutch still doesn't feel like it completely disengages and the dealer is now telling me that it is "normal" after additional fiddling and adjusting at both the lever and the cable end. I know there are a lot of variables in this issue, including what I think is normal. Just wondering if this is common or normal and, if not, any suggestions?
Mine is the same
I use a dab of Vaseline (petroleum Jelly) on the threads. I no longer have a problem..
Brings a new meaning to screwing the cap.
One of the few things you can use anywhere on anything!!
Just spreading the good word - I passed 30,000 miles on my G450X yesterday. Still no real problems to report.
holy crap! you have that thing on a treadmill or something?
DANG!! I am impressed.
Have you done the 70 hour checks?
70 hour checks Yes. I do my own maintenance and my dealer is fine with that. Im pretty strict about maintenance and they seem trust me. Also, its a commuter bike so I guess that has something to do with the way things are holding up. Whats funny are the problems I never expected like the seat cover cracking due to use. Also, the oil vent tube that runs into the air box developed a hole due to vibration.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o>
Thats's one hell of a commuter bike!
So on a ride yesterday when I shut off my bike it failed to restart.
battery seemed dead. Thankfully someone had cables and it would fire with a jump.
The bike had been on a tender and never given me a problem before.
when I got home the battery was low (11.5v) so it did not return to charge or want to start after being ridden 10 miles after being jumped the third time.
The only major change is I replaced the headlight with an LED unit that draws 28 watts @ 1.9 amps. Should be lower than the standard Halogen.
After being on a tender all last night (green light this morning) here are the stats.
Bike off = 12.9
Full load, Light on, blinker on, starter pushed, it goes to 10.2 - 10.8
fast rev 12.2
So bad battery Right?
No parasitic draw present
what is the resting range for a healthy battery in our bikes?
what is the normal reading for the bike running? (charging output)
what is an acceptable low reading when fully loaded?
well, as load tested by starter, it doesnt seem like it drops that much, but charging doesnt sound up to snuff. If should be hitting 13 easy when revving anywhere above idle. This 11 stuff is not good news It should be resting in the 12.2-12.5 range, I believe.
Battery is a good start, then regulator, imo.
Wasn't there a recall on the chargers? I know pmy dealer replaced mine under warranty
I'll go test it later after sitting off the charger for a few hours.
