To quote Pauline Hanson, "Please explain????"
Had some big problems at only 450km on the clock when sprocket carrier bearings were loose in their mounting, allowing the sprocket to move sideways and impinge on the swingarm. Result: chewed up parts and one unhappy owner.
Of course it was fully covered by warranty and all damaged parts were 100% replaced, but no recompense for 6 weeks off the road, wasted registration and insurance, costs of transporting an unrideable bike etc. Dealer (and factory) claimed they'd never seen this problem before. I guess they would say that.
Since then all OK. 300km from a tank of PULP. (Fairly) easily kept up with my brother's R1200RT on winding country roads and quite a bit faster on pot-holed dirt. Can sit on 130 without much stress and did 160 with a bit of effort.
Yes it can stall easily when cold but seems OK if allowed to idle for 3 minutes before setting off. And yes the oil change procedure is fiddly.
Overall, quality seems good for the price and performance seems to be more aligned to 'what you need' rather than 'what you want'.
The BoosterPlug made a noticeable improvement on my Xch 650 so hopefully will work the same on your Terra.
What is that front tyre, Dave?
Dave The trusty Brazillian Pirelli MT21 Dave
Considering getting one of those myself DRF. Sounds like it's well worth it.
I took a run along a powerline track faster than I've done before. The plastic rear rack didn't like it much and broke at one of the front mounting holes. I also lost one of the central rack bolts. I reckon you need red loctite on these. The 243 loctite I used just wasn't strong enough.
Its got a sensor, two plugs and a switch. Where to put the switch is the tricky bit - it should not be too hard to do?
Nev where did you put the switch?
err - what is it?
Wuka King Power Controller. Gizmo to trick bike into making the fuel/air mix richer to get over the factory lean condition.
11 days & 3500km of Terra goodness around south west WA and the goldfields. Mud, tankslappers, sand and camels were all part of the fun.
Just needs a decent rear rack in my opinion. The Terra handled everything else really well.
Plenty of mud around...
Nice work chuffa
Got crash protection.
Drf... 7th Day ADVfarkle-ist.
