    I thought that was already standard equipment.

    I see where you're coming from. The more I ride the more I feel it would come in handy though. I'm 5'10",160# and not particularly strong. I've had situations where a reverse would have made things a lot easier. A recent example where I was on a muddy single track and had to turn around. I made the about face successfully but again it would have been far less if an effort.

    1. Please bring the engine clatter down below 135dB! My God that noise is annoying after a few miles..even with earplugs!
    2. Please keep the engine heat off the rider!
    3. Lower the pegs
    And I for one HATED the old turn signal setup. Countless times it interfered with braking or throttling. (The left side was fine!)

    Hmmm. Didn't think about a heated seat. That's a good one.

    I want a built to order system like beta has. Instead of paying for all the things I take off to replace, let me take a factory credit and add the items pre-delivery.
    I like the old turn signals better but whatever.

    Love the bike, the engine, tranny and all. Yep, I change it but I do that to every bike I own.

    A 7th gear..or something in the 6th. I swear at 80mph feel like I'm turning way more RPM and the noise associated with it at speed. And, since the average buyer is older I believe, a speedometer we can read. Though the little glow dots in the right place I put on help.

    As stated: Better lighting in the rear, more accessory power, larger tank, taller wind screen and lower foot pegs. That little taillight is sad. Stronger power output for accessories. The bike is tall and that limits some riders who are short but the seat to peg ration is what truly allows for more comfort IMO, lower the pegs, I do not think it would impact a short rider, the complaints I hear are about touching the ground. A larger tank, yeah its big and I may be the only one but I'm averaging 42 at best with my fat ass, fully loaded, the claimed 55 must have been done at 45mph, no bags, and a 140lbs rider going downhill lol. A taller wind screen, just let it lower more so its not a big deal for the folks that like it as it is.

    Partnering with some of the aftermarket companies so those upgrades could be done at a discount or some sort of cost/time savings based on it being done upon delivery. Like Harley does with the after market pipes, only for us the risers, increased protection (radiator, skid plate), even seats potentially. On the seats they could easily let you have the bike and then send in their seat, swap when it arrives, rinse and repeat.

    They should take a look at how Harley managed the data inputs from millions when coming up with their Project Rushmore model. Genius data mining and answering the most sought after changes.

    • Improve consistency of the transmission so they all shift well
    • Redesign the stator so its serviceable without removing the whole engine
    • Redesign the clutch shaft so it can't grenade the engine if the hub nut loosens
    • Better swingarm seals to keep moisture out
    • Customizable suspension settings

    Replaceable cylinders on the WC engine would be nice also.

    More underseat storage so I can mount a fuse block.

    Get rid of the service warning light. Or, have it resettable without a GS-911 or the dealer.
