  13. Aloha 800RR800RR , you've come to the sunshine & less traffic! :)
    Awesome sexy bike you have (I'm jealous)... Welcome to the nut house and keep an eye out for organised rides in the Events Qld thread.

    See ya round!
  14. Glad to hear from you again Gianni. Thought that was you when you mentioned you're name.

    I absolutely LOVE my bike. Been having some starting issues the last few months - bike starts first thing in the morning but after that (hot or cold, short or long rides later) she will take a fair amount of cranking over before she fires up. Changed to a new Lithium battery but still the same.
    Seemed to have found a 'fix' for this the past week (if you hold the start button down and then only pull the clutch lever in till the bike starts turning over and keep the clutch at the friction point she seems to start up very easily again). Will be taking the bike in to the dealer this week to check everything out.

    Need a new rear tyre - just reached 8700km and it's well and truly stuffed. Will stick with the new Rosso III since I was most happy with the Rosso II supplied as OE.

    Hope you are enjoying Brisbane and all the new roads that it brings.
  15. Hi George, keen to hear how you go with the starting issues as I have noticed my bike can be difficult to start from time to time.

  16. will do
  17. Hey George, how did you go with the starting issue? Has it been solved?
  18. Dealer ordered 5 sprag clutch warrenty kits so they will call once they have it to do replacement.

    The 'fix' as described above works a charm though.
