Hello from Greeley

Post by JustinP » Sat Jul 13, 2019 9:16 pm


Hey all, just wanted to stop in and say hello. I'll be picking up my new H2 SX SE on Friday in Greenville, SC, and riding it home to Greeley, CO. I'm sure I'll be back asking lots of questions once she's in my garage :).

Thanks. Yes, we will be intimately familiar after the 1600 mile ride home :). I just hope that stock seat isn't as bad as some say it is.

congrats!!!

I don't find the seat bad, make sure you vary that load on the rings don't just jump on the highway and cruise

Thanks, good advise! I'll be taking the back way out of Greenville for the first few hundred miles (Cherahola Skyway etc). I won't be riding it hard, but those roads should give a nice variation on load. And I'll take plenty of stops at the beginning to give it some heat cycles.

P.S. - you'll be seeing my ECU in the next few months :). Going to stick with stock pipes and filter on this bike. Even with your lowest tune, the increases are astounding, and enough for me.

Thanks. Had assumed US as big distances in miles not km but wasn't sure.

I would recommend stopping early and often to keep the blood circulating. Letting the bike heat cycle will give you a great excuse to stop .

awesome! Ill be up in that area this weekend also,

yes even with the stock pipe the bike is pretty insane when it is uncorked. Enjoy your ride home!!! such a cool way to get a new bike!!. Ive done a similar thing for a used car but not a new bike
