It is what it comes standard with, so why wouldn't they?

Off to get the MOSS moss Moss? treatment next week + valve check. Chains and sprockets - might gear it down a tad. I got a DR350 rear sprocket that should fit if the Moss doesn't assist the stalling "issue" (to be honest it has only stalled on me twice - once was in a slow race).


Dozen beers on board.

Just drop one tooth at the front Dave. Makes slower riding a lot smoother and still pulls like a train up top.

Are owners who have fitted the BoosterPlug still having stalling problems?

Maybe go down if the plug does not work (I like the idea that I can dial this bike up high it is real silky in the 130 plus zone)

The moss did not do much.

Nev has a booster plug on his with good results. Mine is on order.

Got 12,000km on the Terra. It ate the EO7 rear in 5,000km.




The last bit of news I heard about the future of the model is a bit disappointing but who really knows?

Updated owner's report.

Had some big problems at only 450km on the clock when sprocket carrier bearings were loose in their mounting, allowing the sprocket to move sideways and impinge on the swingarm. Result: chewed up parts and one unhappy owner.
Of course it was fully covered by warranty and all damaged parts were 100% replaced, but no recompense for 6 weeks off the road, wasted registration and insurance, costs of transporting an unrideable bike etc. Dealer (and factory) claimed they'd never seen this problem before. I guess they would say that.
Since then all OK. 300km from a tank of PULP. (Fairly) easily kept up with my brother's R1200RT on winding country roads and quite a bit faster on pot-holed dirt. Can sit on 130 without much stress and did 160 with a bit of effort.
Yes it can stall easily when cold but seems OK if allowed to idle for 3 minutes before setting off. And yes the oil change procedure is fiddly.
Overall, quality seems good for the price and performance seems to be more aligned to 'what you need' rather than 'what you want'.

The BoosterPlug made a noticeable improvement on my Xch 650 so hopefully will work the same on your Terra.

Considering getting one of those myself DRF. Sounds like it's well worth it.

I took a run along a powerline track faster than I've done before. The plastic rear rack didn't like it much and broke at one of the front mounting holes. I also lost one of the central rack bolts. I reckon you need red loctite on these. The 243 loctite I used just wasn't strong enough.

Its got a sensor, two plugs and a switch. Where to put the switch is the tricky bit - it should not be too hard to do?

Nev where did you put the switch?
