Cheers mate.......the vibes either smooth out after a couple of thousand miles or you just get used to them :lol:

Mine is quite smooth around 4500rpms ......that's where it hangs in 5th at highway speeds (can't use 6th as it needs 125kph or better for the motor to feel happy.......nobody has any cogs in Aus for the Gt, so mine is a 5 speeder while the eyes are upon me ;) ).

I was concerned with the metal pegs at first.......never had them on any bike before......but they are fine and I get no vibes through my boots, and the bars are as good as any prev bikes too.......but the Caponord 1200 was outstandingly smooth - even considering it was a lumpy V2......it was a super smooth thing ;)

Hi all, there is a recall out on fuel pumps/filters which would likely be the solution to stalling/loss of power issues on some 1290's.

I have yet to hand my GT in for the recall (I haven't had any issue with the fuel pump but will do the recall when able)....... but my guess would be some of the pumps are having trouble with ethanol blended fuels and the filters may also be collapsing....(thought I read in the forum somewhere about filter media collapsing and blocking fuel flow as the media turned to mush...).

So Tankar was onto it and not just having a whine about his bike........ hold on while I remove my foot from my mouth (again :roll: ).......... :lol:

There is also a Brembo brake master cylinder plunger recall to attend to in case anyone has missed the notification.

Cheers all
