  1. I'll echo the same sentiment most have. Thanks for being the steward as long as you have. I've met some tremendous people through this forum, and have you to thank for it. Onward!
  2. I have a similar issue currently. I'm investigaing the head bearings. I think that's the root cause. Everything else has been ticked off the list. Perhaps, this bike just allows that shuddering to start a bit earlier in the failure process? Will be doing that in the next few weeks.
  3. Hi, and welcome. You happen to have any audio/video of this idling thing? These bikes make a bit of noise, but this sounds like something suspect. Does it do it when in Neutral? Unfortunately, I don't know much about the DCT, so won't be much help on those questions.
  4. Hi Yokel, Thank you for your donation of 100.00 USD. We look forward to improving the forums with your donation. Thanks VFRDiscussion
  5. Good for you getting it to fire first time. That noise is familiar on my 2010, though my bike may not be as loud. As you noted, they are typically buried under plastics/tank/etc... on the standard bike. At this point I'd say "works as intended".
  6. I've had some personal things come up preventing my being there, and it looks like attendance would be about 3 people in total. Calling it off.
  7. Also, heads up in UK. Looks to be paint code r342c. https://www.ebay.com/itm/255668667767?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=3NBl_CX-S4a&sssrc=2349624&ssuid=mifTwA_JS0m&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY

    I had a similar moment that still makes me laugh. I was Ricky racer on my 1200 (150rwhp ish) going into a sweeping right hander, giving it the beans (I thought), and an unnamed forum member here on a 40hp kawasaki versys on DOT knobbies passed me on the outside while waving at me. Thats the day I really started asking questions. Hahaha

    If I'm reading the tea leaves correctly, I'm across the lake from you in Denver, NC. Not too far. I don't mind people eavesdropping... Perhaps someone can benefit from the discussion. As I mentioned, I'm really just looking for skills development. Most "skillz" courses I've seen are really just low-speed stuff for people with 900lb bikes. While that's all well and good, I don't need parking lot help. I like a spirited pace on the backroads - nothing bananas, mind you - but also would like to be more confident in what I can do, and what the bike can handle. Overall, I feel like that would make me a safer rider. You know, stuff like the interaction of suspension movement with cornering behavior, better managing grip, and developing the muscle memory when things get greasy. I've been really blessed to this point riding with people more experienced than I am, and they are happy to share pointers... But I feel I can be better for that inevitable day there's a deer in the apex. From what I've gleaned, track time is expensive and the safety check stuff seems a bit intimidating. I could frankly use someone to give me an "idiots guide" on what to do. Ha!

    Man, I'd love to pick your brain. I've been looking in to doing some stuff with N2, and I don't even know where to start. I just want to get my skills sharpened up, and I really think a good weekend of focused training/coaching would be a huge step. Cheers for the writeup.
