I like the style of the bike. However, engine's a "screamer". Although you can get a fix for the snatchy fuelling. It was in MCN a few weeks ago, so it must be true Cost about £250, IIRC.Not heard any adverse comment about the handling......
just wondered what the problem is exactly with the fuelling and what 'fixes' it ? Anyone ?
After having read a few comments by Kevin Ash on this bike I'm a little colder on buying it as a replacement option for my FJR. Terrible handling, stuttering fuel injection ... ?I'm not sure I trust his opinion, being a MCN nobhead of some vintage. Anyone have any idea if these are as bad as he says ?
I've managed about 145 to 150 miles out of a tank which I made a special effort to brim. Compared to Bobby's mileage this means either a: Bobby is not pulling the fuel hose right to the lip of the tank and missing out on a few millilitres of fuel or b: I'm riding like a wuss! (more likely)
TBH I've not ran the bike out of petrol so once on reserve ( 110/ 116 miles) I get to a garage pretty pronto! I really must strap a container of petrol to the back and see how far I can get before I run out .What sort of distance are you getting to reserve?
