Ok those are interesting fact. Thanks for sharing that;)

From what I understand is that the airbox is "leaking" around the edges, correct me if I'm wrong...If that's the case why not just put a beat of silicone round the edge and presto...job done! I don't live in a dusty area but when I opened mine at around 4500k's I did find musquitos and smallish flies etc inside the box. (should have taken pic) ...Not good

Hopefully I will have an answer in the next day or so but I would be keen to hear how yours goes.
Sorry to hear this.. I have noticed that mine can be hard to start sometimes, like the battery doesn't have enough CCA to kick it over, was yours the same?
I was thinking of upgrading the battery

Favourites settings

Hi I was just wondering if any of you would like to share what your Favourite screen settings are, I havent got the bike yet but thought this may be a good start

Are there any other ones that are absolutely essential in your mind.

Thank you for your input.

Nope. No indication of problems before it happened. If the valves are out of whack it will be harder (or impossible) to start when cold.

I have has confirmation from my dealer that the valves are indeed jiggered and that dust is the likely cause.

There are a couple of options in the Off-Road PowerParts book.

I have fuel range on their too but it may as well say "have a guess" the way it works!

Either that or I have a fuel tank that is always feeling very optimistic when I fill him up and get gets depressed an very pessimistic once hes half full

Wise words I was scared to offer ,,, paper filters FILTER but oiled foam largely relies on the inertia of the dust particle having it crash into the sticky oil rather than find its way through a passage in the foam....for this reason I left the paper element and only very very lightly oiled the minimal area new foam piece supplied later . it will clog rapidly.

I have
Trip1
Fuel consumption 1
Fuel Range
Air Temp
Odometer

The mode is visible above the clock, so useless in the favorites.
I wanted the oil temp in the favorites in place of air temp, but it wont let me put it there. I hope that is fixed in an update.
