Yea bad explanation, just needs to be open or closed
I tend to only do that with clear road in front of me, I like to try to stop without the aid of the back of a bus/lorry.
Wait. There's a manual?
Yes, really, but then you knew that already.
I have to admit for the first ride or two I found myself still letting the throttle off when shifting, just habit I suppose. Noe it feels really odd not to have quickshift.
Do you mind if I ask where is the windshield? The reason I ask is the local dealer just received 3 including mine and my buddies and all 3 bikes arrived with broken windshields.
As a 990SM owner, I'm wondering how it is to ride without the screen. It actually looks pretty good without it, at least from the side.
Hello my windshield came OK. That's picture is directly from moment of delivery, for that is without windshield and mirrors.
@dustof BTW, cool to see a biker from SK joining the SA S family.
My partner is also from SK. Her home is further West though, so meeting up (when I'm over there) would be tricky. I also don't have a bike over there - yet!
Certainly we would to meet. Let me know when you will be in Slovakia.
Will do! :)
Good info on the seats, grips, peg adjustments, handle bar adjustments and quick-shifter functioning. I’ll tweak two of these items today and the QS is working flawless now that I’m keeping the throttle open during upshifts. That goes against everything I’ve ever done before on motorcycles, but it works on this bike and how it was engineered to shift.
I do have a question about your comment on the 620 mile service. My manual on pages 181-184 lists that first service interval but all items are grey and not filled in black for mandatory compliance. In short, my manual doesn’t have one item that requires attention at the 620 mile mark, so what exactly occurs at that service and how are they unleashing more HP from the bike? I know the shift light can now be modified after the break in period, but the manual doesn’t say anything about the engine being unleashed at the 620 mile mark. Is this something that occurs automatically or does it require a technician with laptop etc?
You’re correct and it is really, really good. I tried it yesterday and it’s awesome. Been reading the manual for a couple hours this morning and getting caught up after the purchase and long ride home.
They are not really unleashing more HP, it just appears because you likely use higher RPM ranges after the first service.
However, if they did, they could easily just have a softer throttle map (like street versus sport) that is set for the 1st 1,000km. Plus the engine might be a bit looser/smoother with fresh oil.
Also, it seems to take around 5000km+ for the engine to break in well and for me it seemed to smooth out/become more peppy every 500km ... even more so when I got a proper fuel pump at 7,800km. :)
Hi, congrats to a super bike!
I remember correctly the tack redlighet came on at 7500 rpm and IT was rekommended not to go over until first service, I Hardly Went over so IF there was any loss in that region i do not know, especially since My bike was one of the ones were the tank was not cleaned and had to change filter. If you are looking for a really nice topbox, look at the Givi Dolomiti.
Recommend also the PP seats.
Notice how my manual has nothing required at that 1,000 km / 620 mile mark...
Thanks... so far my tachometer is programmed to throw red screen warnings at 6200 rpms. I’m definitely in the market for more GIVI products and their top and side boxes.
The hollow circle/ring symbol means one-time event/interval.
It does appear that the hollow circle items need to be done on the first service.
And it says one time interval meaning doesn't need to be done every 620 miles.
Your manual picture shows requirement to check oil nozzle for clutch lubrication. Never heard of that before. Can an owner post a closeup photo?
