Hate: The seat, the heat and the dimly lit displays.
Like: The power, the handling, the looks and the suspension.

Love:
Power (even though it's not run in yet)
Handling (spot on)
Suspension (although still needs setting up properly)

Hate:
The inaccessibility of the ignition lock, I'm always getting my key fob jammed under the top yoke (yes i'm being picky)
The Height (although see suspension above, it's definitely too hard at the moment)
The buffeting off the screen (better since I dropped it to the lowest setting but still a pain)
The fact it's not run in yet and i'm limited to 7000 revs!

Hello to all, this is my first post here !
When I took my footpegs off, I cannot get the hefty little springs back on.
Has anyone come across a special tool for this, or made one ? I am currently riding around without those nasty little springs.

If I remember correctly I used needle nose pliers to reinstall spring. Once you get it compressed you should be able to slide into place.

I love the hydraulic clutch, it has a very controllable feel to it.

I hate the 35 inch seat height, I will have to lower mine. I can barely ride it on the street, God help me in gnarly stuff !

Nice, I will try my best needle nose pliers. Perhaps by grinding a little notch in the jaws.
