It's all clear now (or at leaast I think it is). Gravity helps (communicating vessels principle). But because I only put some 2-3 litres in the front tanks, with nothing in the rear, it was not...

Spacers are different

Grant, the spacers ("distance bushings" as per Owner Manual) are different in size. The left one is wider. If you switch them by mistake you get exactly the type of problem you described :cry

The 701D is a nice choice! Also called the "Strategic Road", it follows the mountain ridge (Latoritzei Mountains). West to East is a good approach for a big bike. I've done the road...
