Speaking of bar risers....

I have a set of Rox risers on my Vstrom but I saw these PowerMadd risers on a buddie's DR650 last weekend and really liked them.

They offer both 2" and 3" rise in 7/8" - 7/8" and 7/8" - 1 1/8"

I think I will go with these on the Stelvio. I like that they won't twist like the Rox risers can, plus they are cheaper.

In my experience, it's not twisting that's an issue, but rotating in the stock clamps. The PowerMadd risers would be susceptible to the same issue.

That said, they'd work fine as long as the distance between the clamps is compatible. I don't know what it is, but with the Rox Risers it doesn't matter.

So, are you going to change your bars?

Has anyone had any issues with the bike cranking fine and not starting up? Sometimes mine does this but it does start on the second or third try. Just wondering if anyone has run into this and has any ideas ?

It usually happens after riding for about 1/2 hour and then letting it sit for an hour, Like doing lunch, but the other day it did it cold right out of the garage.

Sometimes mine did this, but as I get more miles on it (nearing 6k now) it has been doing it less and less. In my case, it would fire first or second revolution in the morning, but in the afternoon it could take 6-8 revolutions before it would fire. No clue what the difference was, but it hasn't done it in a while so I'm not too concerned.

Mine always starts up pretty quickly, even when it's 20 degrees outside. It's got 8K miles on it and doesn't seem any different than it did when it was new.

My 2012 NTX has not had this happen, always starts right away. On my 2010 Bonneville T100 I had a similar problem after I removed the air injection. Previous to the removal it would always start right away. After removal, if I let it cool for 1/2 to 1 hour it won't start unless I use the choke. It acts like it's flooded. I think it's some type of vapor lock in the FI. I just use the choke.

Pyounbl,

No what I was getting at is if your headlight isn't on you blew the fuse that also runs the alternator. And you will soon run out of juice and be walking.

The headlight is fantastic.

Just as a point of reference, Marc....that bike never did in in the ~12,000 miles I had it. Always a quick start.

Same here...2012 w/5200 miles- never an issue. 2013 with 500 miles, same as 2012. Hot, cold, wet, dry...didn't matter. Fired up on the first few turns.

+1 - never a problem

Isn't hard start sometimes a tight valve issue?

Most of the time it fires right up on the first turn, zoom. But every now and then it takes some cranking, kind of like it is flooded???? I will mess with it and see if I can determine the exact conditions that it happens under.

I love the bike however. What a hoot to ride.

Connector Brand?

Looking for the brand of connector used on the fog lamps. I want to create a plug and play in-line fuse holder (will create extras for you fine folk). Connector in question circled.
