    Mine has the flathead screw in the middle of that nut. I don't think the 17mm is supposed to be moved?

    The R has the center screw for low speed, a 17mm nut for highspeed, and then an even larger nut (that you most definitely do not want to loosen unless you feel like making a mess...

    Word. I see it now. Thanks.
    I've owned the bike for 2 days. Need to thumb through the manual.

    So, I just put the Antigravity ATZ-10 Re-start battery in the 790 a few days ago, but today I noticed the battery system voltage constantly climbing up and down between 14V and 16V, just like this post from last year. It did NOT do this with the OEM battery, and it looks like no one ever answered the OP's original post. I'm wondering what's going on here, as the LIFEPO4 batteries don't really like charging voltages much over 14.7V, much less 16V.

    Weird, stock charging system should not go over 14.5, anymore is bad.
    Put the stocker back in and see what happens maybe?

    I have a Lithium battery on mine, charge is stable at 14.5 V.

    I have checked the FAQ a couple of times and looked around, I'm wondering what short clutch levers people are using. The clutch lever is super long so I'm hoping for something shorter.

    As above, I too snapped one of mine off in a drop. Came home and just wrapped the levers in hockey tape. I should probably take bolt cutters to the other lever so they're both short but I'll have to wait till the snow melts so I can get into the shed to get them. Quick and dirty shorty levers. ;) The tape gives them a nice feel imo.

    I saw a few people here using Raximo levers. Mine are on order, check in next week

    My output shaft seal was replaced at the 1st service, July or August of 19. No leaks since then.

    I put that in mine a couple of weeks ago. I'll look at the voltage when I ride today.

    I did some further investigation, and found that, along with the wild voltage swings, the headlamp flickers on and off, and the high beam comes on by itself at times. The voltage spikes must be really playing havoc with the canbus controller. When I put the stock battery back in, I get a nice, even 14.6V charging rate, and the headlamp operation is normal.
    I contacted Antigravity about this, so we'll see what they have to say.

    Seems to be quite a few weird things happening I see with Antigravity batteries :dunno

    I'm running the ATZ-10 in my R. So far, no issues. Im wondering what else is going on as I lost a brand new battery in a brand new bike in less that 5 months. Maybe something fluky in the charging system on these bikes?

    I assumed it was the charging system?

    That's not a conclusion I would reach. The charging system has been operating normally for 10,000 miles with the stock battery, went right around the bend with the Antigravity battery, and is acting normally again with the stock battery. The ATZ-10 battery with Restart has a whole layer of electronics between the electrical system of the bike and the actual storage cells, to limit over-charging and over-discharging, so it would seem something is going on in that area.
