New to the Versys
Coming from a Uly, I really enjoy the bike so far, er.. what little power I can get from it. Dang Break in has you limited to 4K.. I feel sorry for folks who live next to an interstate.. How critical is this?
I have hit the 5K mark 2-3 times but only as I shifted through gears, nothing sustained.
Book calls for 10-40, I typically run 20-50. I see it is an option, and as I am in warmer temps I prefer the 50.. whats the general preference?
Bike rides like a road wagon.. Book says its set for 150 pound rider, im 193.. I need to check tire pressure, haven't done that yet, may have something to do with it. Possibly the suspension will soften more as I ride. Only 50 miles on it currently.
Little gear whine coming from tranny side during acceleration and sometimes during sustained riding.. Someone below said possibly from brakes, but its most definitely coming from the tranny / clutch..Possibly just running in as break in continues? Its not loud or obnoxious, just noticeable. One of the reasons I finally got rid of my Uly is the " where is the sound coming from, and that doesn't sound right" and Often the.. " Dang who put marbles in my motor"
Anyway, Very happy for the little I have ridden it so far! look forward to longer trips once I get the break in oil changed at 600 miles.
Oh, How important is it to let the dealer do it? I prefer myself, but will it void warranty?
