Re: Official start up procedure - 2 or 3 minute idle

Oil hits the critical parts pretty quickly and the noticable rattling stops, but it is the constant flow of warmer lubricant that is important.

Re: Official start up procedure - 2 or 3 minute idle

When the engine is cold, I start it and sit and wait and focus on the ride and the day until the dash shows 40° C. I then ride to work or out of the underground garage at work homewards. Gives me time to focus on the ride ;-)

Re: Tough choices - help!

... The green will grow on you :) Yep, it really had to grow on me. I would have rather had the blue metallic of the zzr1400 when it came out. :-( After reading all the posts, the QS (quick-shifter) is the pivot point. I am amazed there is a retro-fit one. Both up and down? Heated grips are a game ...

Re: 2HYPR out and about...

You did the drone thing towards the end of the video, didn't yout ? Great Music, great perspective and parched landscape! If I wasn't riding an H2SXSE you would have made me dead envious! Flying a MavicPro myself and was planning on doing something same.
