    I say one new color in, one existing color out, and carry over otherwise. I would like to see a blue.

    He really needs to powder coat those upper crash bars to match.

    I predict higher sticker prices and another part or two that has undergone some fine tuning in quality (cost) that will fail and cause recalls or campaigns.

    Course, that can be said of almost any maker. :D I just wish my Jeep's windows would go up first try.

    I predict they bump the actual displacement to something random like 798 CC

    Ha ha to all who responded. Seriously, I would love to see a new cast wheel design, for example. It hasn't changed now in the entire 7-8 year history of this bike (other than that cool wheel and frame finish color on the sunset yellow special edition). I, for one, love the look of the new F800GT wheels.

    Better windscreen.

    A gas gauge that actually reads from empty to full. ( better than no gauge but really is useless)

    What will they really do? Change the color. Tweak the abs, just 'cuzz

    For general use in summer, I favor Rotella 15W-40 blended 2 to 1 with Royal purple 10W-50.

    For the cooler months, a 3 way blend of 10w-40 Amsoil, 5W-40 Castrol Syntech, plus 15W-50 NAPA branded Valvoline synthetic.
    Pre-warmed, well shaken in a one gallon Delo 400 jug, and then served at 68 degrees F.

    ... I ALWAYS prefill the filter.
