    Don't run the engine at all. In aviation the rule is to only start the engine if you can run it at something approaching cruise power for 1 hour afterwards. This is mostly to burn off accumulated...

    I have quite a bit of vibration anywhere close to top speed and I was wondering if my new(not balanced) tires were the culprit. But, reducing throttle significantly or pulling in the clutch pretty...

    That's my best theory, different/better ecu mapping on her particular 2013 bike, which runs really nicely. She used to get a kick out of teasing me whenever I stalled my 2014 F7, usually at a stop...

    The gadget is a fuel spoofer that attaches to the O2 sensor wire and fools the computer into thinking it needs to add fuel throughout the range. As I mentioned in the earlier post my F700 was quite...

    I thought I might have a tire/wheel balance issue as well but pulling in the clutch at top speed killed 90% of the vibes.....leading me to look at the engine as the culprit. I can run smoothly to...

    It needs that first oil change, then the frequency can be extended. The shorter the trips, the more idling time the more frequent the oil changes should be. I don't know the last time I read of an...

    Our chains do that too, VERY objectionable rattle that only disappears under acceleration, reappears when cruising at slower speed, never hear it when above 40 km/hr +/-.

    It doesn't look like a safety issue to me, although they are quite loose compared to my own. I've read that a dab of silicone goo into each bobbin / rotor point will do much to lessen the racket./...

    I'd suggest checking them every so often and the 12k is probably reasonable. I just replaced the lower bearing on the wife's 2013, due to pretty severe notchiness at center. The bearing was fairly...

    Hey Lyle,
    That's pretty high mileage on the Anakee 3 if you have plenty left. I'm at almost 15,000km on my 2014 and the rear still has some life (maybe 3-4,500km?) but the front is getting square...

    Best method I have found to avoid stator failure is to buy a spare and keep it on hand. A m/c battery at 12.6 is edging nearer the lower end of the expected scale...not bad but I'd keep an eye on it....
