    Maybe on the first acceleration out the driveway on a cool morning, there is a slight hesitation on partial throttle...open it up an it goes...
  2. Am I the only one who didn't know...

    RPM increases in all gears, put it in any gear and start to let out the clutch...
  3. Am I the only one who didn't know...

    I hear ya, I have gotten used to,the two finger pull so my other fingers are between the lever and the grip.
  4. Am I the only one who didn't know...

    Okay, I stand corrected. Obviously, using only two fingers to pull in the clutch I am not pulling it in all the way to the grip, so I see the rpm rise when I put it in gear...but the switch obviously detects the gear lever also because there is no change when in neutral.
  5. Am I the only one who didn't know...

    hmmm, have to double check that....but then that means the engine revs between each gear change everytime i pull on the clutch? get back to ya later on this one...
  6. Am I the only one who didn't know...

    doesnt seem to have any connection to the clutch...my engine speed increases by that 250 rpm when i put it in 1st, pop it back into neutral and idle drops.
  7. Lane splitting I believe is illegal in 49 states, California is the only one not illegal.
  8. got to hand it to ya, spliiting lanes in the city, putting a lot of faith in those drivers, sunday mornings are the only time i will take my bike into the city....i have seen people splitting lanes on the west side highway....
  9. First Service: 10W-50 Oil?

    Right?...it's a myth...years ago synthetic were suspect in the deterioration of rubber gaskets and seals...that is no longer the case, but like the 3000 mile oil change...some myths never die. Unless there is someone from Honda who designs engines that can speak on the subject, my money is on full synthetics.
  10. First Service: 10W-50 Oil?

    First oil change...600 miles honda oil...2000 miles amsoil synthetic. Seriously, how many years do you actually own a bike befor ya get the itch for a new one...had my 92 ST1100 for 12 years, had synthetics in after the first 800 miles, oil leaks were non existent
  11. MotoPumps risers

    Took a second look at mine, I noticed the other side has a beveled edge to blend into handlebars and bottom is flat, so check yours. Just flip them
  12. MotoPumps risers

    What could be wrong..,they only go on one way, right?
  13. Recommended 600 mile break in

    i have always done my own oil changes, but the dealer gave me such a good price on the bike and a pair of KLIM jeans that i felt guilty, so i let them do the first oil change....charity....same price as yours....do it yourself! lol
  14. What kind of Oil/Filter do y'all use?

    Amsoil synthetic fiber filter and their oil
