I've had the battery out of the bike and on a tender every other week until topped off.... plus it was doing this before I took the bike off the road.

I'm pretty sure it's not the start button. I hear a click under the seat when it doesn't start, so it's actuation the starter it seems but without enough power.. or something like that.

Title says it all... It was a fairly warm night last night so I took my mint 2012 50th anniversary edition R1 out for a quick ride to do some errands at around 7:30 pm. About 2 miles from my house...

Digital Torque Adapers (Torque Wrench)

So it sounds like they changed the epoxy they are using on the new rotors in comparison to the original ones. Did do anything to your bike to make it run a lot cooler that would prevent it from ever...

I have a Motobatt in both my R1 and SV1000. The original one that I replaced in the R1 was the factory stock battery that came with it when new. The SV has a decently larger sized battery than the...

Haven't heard from him since. Hopefully the stand didn't fail and crush him.

In the words of my 4 year old nephew... "Him died?"

Damn.... rough way to see the bike go, but at least you destroyed the bike without crashing it and thus avoided any injury.

I guess on a positive note, you get to upgrade without having to sell...

No vibration at all from the R1 at any RPM.......

No vibration at all from the R1 at any RPM.... It's ridiculously smooth from top to bottom. On my SV my mirrors would shake and vibrate all over the place at idle. Such a nice change.

It's not really NO engine braking.... it's just far less than the SV and is effective at way higher RPMs than the SV really ever hits. It's one of those things you notice immediately when...
