Re: A bit of a review

MR C, I've heard of some people getting exchanges on their panniers through warranty but (if memory serves) the ones in question were letting in water.

RDKLL, I've seen the details of your crash and the saga that followed. I hope you get yours sorted and back on the road asap!

Re: A bit of a review

Cheers Dave! I actually forgot to mention in my write up that I'm also using the luggage mode when riding with just myself on the bike.

A bit of a review

I've had the 1290 GT for a few months now and I guess this review can serve as my introduction. Hopefully it will help out anyone who's interested in getting a GT, I certainly relied on info from owners to inform my decision. Sorry, it's a bit of a long read. For reference I'm 6'0" and 81kgs, a...

Re: Repair estimate is $10K-write-off?

Sorry to hear about the whole ordeal. I hope you're healing up ok. Sounds like you should at least end up with something that's as new though.

Congrats on the new bike! Looks like you've got quite the collection there. I'm not jealous... really, I'm not.

Re: Dash Reflections

This has bugged me as well, wish the dials had a non-reflective coating of some sort. I was going to look into this and see if anyone makes something I could overlay. A lot of companies make anti-glare products but they all seem to be pre-cut for mobile phones.

Re: Who's done front sprox mod !

I was thinking about changing the gearing at first (I also had a 16T front sprocket on the Capo) but I've decided to leave it as is for now.

If you're interested in the effects changes would make, this is a pretty cool tool:

Re: Ergo seats

I found the stock seat uncomfortable and an hour ride was enough to bring this out. For me it was the inside of my thighs where I felt it, the ass area didn't bother me. I want the GT set up for long days so grabbed the GT ergo seat when I bought the bike. It is definitely an improvement in comfort ...

Re: Oiling the chain on long rides/after rain

A mate of mine was doing that with his Diavel.....until the side stand broke! I've never heard of that happening before, will avoid that approach on the GT then. Not a great thing to do in the middle of a tour. Reminds me of the time someone's Suzuki Bandit had it's clutch sensor die about 1,500km ...

Re: Fork Chatter

Sounds like it is build up like the others have suggested. I've had this on other bikes in the past. Your best bet is to find a long stretch of road so you can run through this process. Basically get up to as high a speed as you're able to do comfortably/legally and break HARD down to about 10MPH, s...
