So true Toby. Exactly what I was getting at.
I love the pipes! I have to agree with you!canyon1 said:This may seem weird to some, but I like the pipes. Yeah, the bike has a whine instead of a rumble but it has a short stroke and overhead cam and it's water cooled so it is inherently quieter. I've had more compliments on this bike than any other I've ever had. People at stop lights ask me questions about the bike or give me the "thumbs up". So far no one has waved at me with their middle finger. That is a GOOD sign.

I was beginning to think that the CLUNK in first was something that was wrong with my bike.....was actually thinking of taking it in for service till I read your post.......Is this normal for everyone else's strykers? Can this be fixed by adjusting clutch?Saltyseafarer said:Cheesy a$$ horn = flaw replaced mine with a PIAAA duel Slimline
Oil sight bubble = seriously lacking especially with the 45 degree slant while on the kickstand
Kickstand = flaw WTF! down here in the sunny south you run across a lot of thin melty asphalt in parking lots, I've left a few divots where the stand was startin' to sink in. The wild angle puts more weight to bear on the stand, just a poor design.
. . . . . . a parking puck from Cycle Gear is now in my bag works like a champ.
The pipes I don't mind, visually it was one of the things that first caught my eye, I wish the sound was better, but a drill can help that a little.
First gear drive-train engagement CLUNK! = disappointing WTF Yamaha you can do better. I am used to it now, the stuttering at low speeds between gears is offset by learning to use the clutch appropriately. But that 1st CLUNK is definitely tacky.
