Try resetting the mpg, especially after being dyno'd where the bike was getting 0 mpg.
This is lifetime @7k miles. it's uk mpg.
The bike was mapped & dyno'd with just over 200 miles on it. Did the full header/slip on fr Leo Vince.
Thats awesome , mine has a 4.6 litre/100 km 51.4 mpg IMP. average . It gets considerably less over 110 kms/hour.
Hey guys, I’m about to purchase a tail today (thinking Camel ADV) does anyone have any recommendations for a plug and play set of rear turn signals that will work with a tail tidy system? Thanks for any thoughts.
Any turn signal will work. If you choose the LED type, riders usually change the flasher unit as well to calm down the flash rate. In the Camel install vide Corey cuts and uses the OEM signal connectors,
I have this set at work (industrial mechanic), and for my bikes. Super compact and good for hard to reach spots. No sockets but does have a 1/4" drive adapter for your sockets of choice!
So after installing the SW Motec center stand and riding about 600 miles with it on I have the following comments-
++ Install was easy, and the design of how they use a bolt to attach and tighten up the springs for the stand is brilliant
+ The bike goes up easy on the stand and is fairly tight to the bike - looks much tighter to the bike than the photos of the stock one I have seen.
+ Don't hear or feel it bouncing around over fairly rough surfaces. Have not taken it over any big whoops or jumps yet.
- Will definitely need to be removed to fully service the shock pivot/linkage
-- The bracket on the right side of the bike sticks out so that when I am standing on the pegs and try to drop my heels, the heel of my right boot hits the bracket and the post that holds the springs.
What He Said
Can anyone tell me whether the SW Motech Center stand is compatible with the Outback Motortech skidplate?
Did you notice how close the chain is to the centerstand when the bike is on the sidestand? The SW and HB are both like this... in fact my HB is lightly touching the chain. When the suspension is loaded there appears to be adequate clearance, but it's still kind of disconcerting.
Jeez, 175 pages this thread already!
So any main bitch points on this bike?
Thinking of downsizing from my GS to something simpler
You live local to me, swing by for a test ride, you won't regret it.
Well its been out for over 16 months.....
Some people winge because they don’t know where to put the petrol cap when they fill up
and others seem to stress because the fuel guage isn't telling them on a bi second interval how many km they have till they run out
and for some this must be the only vehicle speedo they have ever compared to what a GPS is saying
So if you can get over those deal breakers, enjoy

Well I’m a believer in Yamaha for simplicity and reliability. I know zilch about the maintenance on the T7, valve checks, oil changes etc...
well myself or anyone I know who own them, and I know a few, have not had any reliability issues, service is a piece of cake
but people who seem to crash a lot complain about damage getting done
What was going on in north ga this past weekend? I have been wanting to see a t700 for months now and none are available locally but I passed 7 of them back to back on a trail saturday
I still haven’t ever seen one with my own eyes. Rumor is there’s one around town where I live. If this bike doesn’t get to the dealer by end of November I’m just going to buy a 500exc and buy a T7 used in a couple years. I’m bikeless right now and the pain is real!
