    The brakes on the GT are very efficient and not over-sensitive but with good feel. They are more efficient than on my Kawasaki Versys 650, but the brakes on the Versys are a bit wooden though good...

    Welcome PoloTLSE.
    The bike looks nice in that colour.

    I tend to leave mine in 'comfort' unless the road get's pretty bumpy, in which case, I go for 'normal' to sharpen up the damping. The difference is perceptible to me though not substantial. I don't...

    Yes, I'd be interested to hear of others' experience too! I don't want to wrap my lovely graphite blue GT but have another bright orange bike in mind :cool:

    Yep, most engines are the same. You'll notice it in a lot of cars despite the dry clutch as opposed to wet.

    Potentially, riding in the rain can make you a better rider, smoother on the throttle and the gentler brakes and anticipating manouevres well ahead. You learn what the tyres can cope with, which is...

    On the latest iteration of the GT, maximum power is at 8000 rpm IIRC. Max torque is at 5,800 rpm.

    I changed the oil and filter today. Got the engine good and hot and let it drain for ten minutes on the side stand.
    It took almost precisely 3 litres. After a good run, the oil is at the max line....

    I'm sure it's fine. They tend to be a bit noisier when cold.
    I wouldn't start it up very few days. This is likely to do more harm than leaving it standing for a few months. If you do start it then...

    I too had a good laugh at this thread. For me, it's not just screens, it's finding the perfect set up on the perfect bike. No such thing. :flypig: It's part of the appeal of motorcycling for me. If I...

    I have a 2019 model. Assuming it's the same, there will be an orange warning triangle on your dash when ASC is off. If you switch off the ignition and switch on again, then I believe ASC is...

    I have to say, I find the GT is the easiest bike to clean I have had. No need for harsh cleaners.
    Not having a chain is a big plus!
