I agree with with Rally throttle setting not needed. I used the offroad setting with ABS off and TC in the 6 to 8 zone. I just can't believe this bike is so different from previous bikes I need to change my style/technique. The clutch didn't completely fail, but I can see with gravelers and 2 track, no problem. Fully kitted out with gear for a 10 day trip and attempting difficult routes. Weight, terrain maybe a liability. My lower displacement WR250 with the same luggage, seams to like the beating I give on harder terrain and begs me to give it more. I see it looking at me everyday. My 2010 990R, I could just tippy toe one side "Tall" had over 40k+ km with not even a glint of a problem. Feet on the pegs because paddling was not a option. Not to compare, but I know I am not a hack and the , minimal amount of clutching I did....even though I admit doing it... like its a bad thing? I wasn't half clutching this bike and riding it like that the whole way. The adjusting arm was just done before I started so I know this was right with the required free play. I was also giving it cool down breaks. I love the size of the bike, lightness, ergonomics, suspension. I will love it more with out worrying about this. This exercise is a positive getting to know the bike. I know for me the new lower Gearing , new size jet and bring another clutch pack will give me comfort for my future trips.
