The fuel gage read zero with fuel in it...got to the dealer and they were looking at a couple of other things. The tech came and got me and aske...

Re: Tell me it is a bad idea..

I am hoping that I get my wife's confidence up to test ride one herself...but if not I will ride it and tell her it would be great for her. And watching/reading the reviews so far it really would be the perfect bike for her. The rags are saying this is a great starter bike all the way up to someone ...

Re: Headlamp and Daytime Running Lights

There were some questions the other day on one of the fb pages about the DRL on the GT...DRL: OFF-Low beam will be burning all the time and the LED element will be illuminated as well. DRL:ON-Low beam will be off and the LED above the headlight will be 4X brighter than when the low beam is off. I wa...

Re: No start?

Has plenty of gas; filled up at favorite BP station last week on the way home. Good question, tho'. Called the dealer this afternoon. He said try charging the battery. Even though battery is strong enough to turn the engine over, and get it to cough, it may not be turning fast enough to start and r...

Engine turns over, coughs once, then dies. Attempts to restart have same result: crank, cough, die. Crank, cough, die. No hints on di...

I brought it in and they pulled codes and nothing r...
