I wonder if there's a way to get around that so the DCT will work with other sprocket combos.
So you will be getting some better tyres soon then
How slow is it possibile to ride AT in first gear - on smooth surface and when off-road?
thats really impossible to answer. How slow can you ride a manual bike? Can someone ride slower than you? Maybe Chris Birch with a trials background?
Someone with impeccable balance can probably just balance the bike without any forward movement
How is the headlight brightness, spread and throw at night on low beam alone and on high beam with both lights lit up?
Erey, Thanks for sharing your new bike with us, you seem to be enjoying it, and that is the important thing.
I think he meant with the clutch fully engaged (not pulled). Basically the speed with the engine at idle at first gear.
As was discussed on the speculation thread you just ride the rear brake to slow down as needed. What may be missing (and maybe only by me) is can you keep the revs up to use the gyroscopic action of the engine. One of the skills taught during my MSF class was keeping the revs up while modulating the clutch and rear brake to keep the speed down. That's how I'm reading MikeMM's question.
Or was the throttle & clutch dance just to keep it from stalling...?
I have a crosstourer and a cb500x the cb with a aftermarket muffler sounds better than my crosstourer,i cant wait to get my AT in feb,the AT will have double the HP of my 500X so a lack of power wont be an issue :)
I have no question, it was my attempt to answer Old Roman..
Oops, my bad. I scrolled up to see who posted that comment and got yours by mistake.
One little detail: Erey has a manual transmission, not DCT:).
Yeah, I caught that after responding to the question that appeared to be directed at the DCT bikes. So I mis-read who asked a question about a bike that's not owned by the OP...
I need to stop while I'm not too far behind
Would it not have been better with tubeless tires and spokes like the GS?
Please don't start that conversation again. There's a couple dozen pages floating through the merged threadfest.
erey, Can you tell us the distance in mm/inches from the foot pet to the saddle (leg room)? And which saddle is on your AT? TIA.
I have a manual AT. But this is an interesting question. I will answer with this site. The AT is not yet in the database but you can find the idea. The most important for me is the torque and the rpm.
For now I think the AT is configured too high. I will change drive ratio.
I was happy with the headlight off-road in a forest. Low beam is alone and when you use the high beam, one light still low and the other high. Good for me.
54-55 cms with the normal seat in high position - seat to foot pegs (without the rubber)
