What kind of oil you use?
Both sides were replaced with the latest when they were trying to fix the stalling issue.
Mine is hopping tried 2 different tires the wheel is out I think
Dont change too fast to the S10 coz every other bike after that will be less reliable.
So... dont play your cards to soon.
Anyone on this thread had the worn out fork tubes that I've read about? I can't remember if I read about it here or elsewhere. I was wondering if you managed to get a look at them yourself. I'm going to have mine apart in a couple weeks for a rebuild just as a PM before snow melts. Would like to have an idea of what other's have seen in the way of visible damage (if any was visible at all). Thanks.
I found wear in my forks some time back. You may have read it here about a few folks that have had wear issues.
If you do find wear, typically is about 200mm from top of fork tube, pretty well inline with lower clamp.
It is usually on the rear side of tube. Sometimes the left leg shows more wear also. Typical size of wear around 40mm diameter.
The outer tube internal surface needs to be cleaned of oil to see the wear if present. The sheen off the oil can mask the appearance of the wear.
Best of luck you Don't have any wear.
Some have gone down warranty route. I never bothered, just re coated and did some other mods to help reduce risk of happening again.
I came from an S10. :)
No- I never had the wheel off- bike has 2000 miles
1st set of tubes egg shaped patch down there.
I'm not sure exactly how it works, but any time the bike is only idling in gear (first normally) it roll, just like a manual bike when the clutch is pulled in. Similar to a rekluse in feeling I guess.
That's some great info thanks for posting that. Knowing what to look for will certainly help. I remember reading that some thought part of the issue could be over-torqued lower clamp bolts from dealer assembly and I did re-torque all of the bolts when I first got the new bike home.
My lower is at 14nm now.A Internet cammando told me my front will fall off lol.
I just did my forks, 3500miles mostly road with some forest service roads when i can. The inside showed some light patches but not worn completely through so I just rotated the tubes to get to a fresh spot and will check on them the next time.
This photo confirms JJ is in 24hour awake mode, watching for the end of winter and the start of ride season lol.
Soon I can stop scanning these threads, driving myself crazy watching problems/potential problems, and put some miles down! Maybe 1 more week if these temps hold...
ok, sorry for the detour, and now back to problems...
Should hit 50 Saturday and I am ready.Also I am a 2cd shift guy.
Sound bad, but never happens to me. I hope they can really find it out, not just guessing. Maybe some sensor?
Dealer is closed today as well, so I'll bring it there tomorrow.
My previous shifting issues were never diagnosed. We've had to factory reset the system again since then when the idling wouldn't drop below 2k and I had trouble getting the bike to engage 1st, and stopping it from 'running away'. No error code, nothing wrong but functioning haphazardly.
I'm farked right now. I rode the bike around my neighborhood a bit and it seemed like it was shifting fine in S1 mode so I rode it to work (26 km away). I noticed as I was about 3/4 into the the trip the shifting got more hesitant. About a km from the office it got stuck in 5th and I can't start it, even rocking the bike back and forth doesn't make it go into neutral. I parked it at some company's lot and told them I'd be back later. Hoping it goes into neutral once it cools down...
