Any of you fortunate enough to have taken delivery care to tell us how the AT compares to the 1190 or 950? Don't want to start a my-bike-is-better dialog, just curious about how it stacks up.
Delivery dates are all over the place for the States, not sure it's a possibility until autumn at this point.

no body have the wiring diagram ?
OK, so this makes me genuinely curious. When the DCT changes down gear, the engine revs must increase to match the bike speed, but surely that doesn't require a throttle adjustment by the user.
Does anyone know how it does this without the DCT having any throttle input? Not trying to argue - I'd really like to know how it works.
As one clutch engauges the other dissengauages the engine revs are then pulled up higher by the lower gear. No blip of the throttle or anything like that. No user input.
Interesting. You have the oem screen or taller screen ? Noise or bufting with your Hornet helmet and nothing with the xr1100 ?
I wanna buy a new helmet but don't know if i choose the shoei hornet or NXR. ? I got the honda high screen an i am 177cm
Air flow is excellent for me wearing either the Arai RX-Q road lid or Bell MX-9 Adventure lid. Im 185cm tall and stock screen.
Does anyone wear the shoei hornet with the high screen here ?
Well, when would the engine downshift? When decelerating, you would presumably be braking and hence throttle would be reduced. But from matching isn't required then.
Otherwise, you bring up a good point.
Think the other way around, when upshifting, the bike does it automatically without telling you, so your throttle will stay open. I get the point that the software and mechanical systems are good, but I would still expect the there would be some intervention on the throttle bodies to control rpm. Pure speculation on my part.

There is no throttle servos!!! No intervention on the part of the bike, I has 2 clutches!!
lOL Just about to test ride with this old touratech clipon screen that I replaced the plastic screen on years ago
for an another ADV bike I sold last year, Totally tinned the shape and size, haven't changed a thing and looks good
Hoping it will work well when two up and can be removed at any time and fit in my tank bag or saddle bag.
Bonus you can have the best of both wolds wind protection on the open roads and remove for more air Flow
when at slower speeds and hot days off road
The helmet i will be using is a Shoei Neotec flip lid
I can report back in 3 ish hrs on the result
Yeah.. pretty much what I'm looking at.. except the Givi ones offer far more fore/aft adjustment and in the fly too
Why not take the peak off when you're not doing woods riding and worried about being smacked by branches. Easy to add back on when needed.
That's what I do. I like the lightness and bigger faceshield opening of my D/S helmet but have no need for the peak which is just plain troublesome at highway speeds. The peak sits on the shelf. If I'm riding in a situation that I need a peak to block roost I'll wear a true dirt helmet.
Here's a kit to eliminate the tubes. The few reviews I've read say it works.
Hmm, I wonder, is that why they call it a dual clutch? (Yeah, it's called sarcasm)

I though the AT wheels 1) didn't have the required bead (or whatever it's called) for tubeless tires, and that 2) the front wheel is too narrow or something like that for tubeless.
Gee, I don't know, you think so?
If you check the link you'll see pics of it installed on the AT.
