NR makes good shit.

I'll look into that bag. I ordered the larger KTM bag, but it's too big, awkward fit, and it scratched the hell out of the tail on both sides of the seat in the 200mi I had it on the bike. :-/

I still can't make myself put a tail bag on a bike.

At this point its raw knuckleheadedness, but I can't do it.

Can one of you guys please check to see if your bike stays in sport mode after you shut the bike down for at least 30 minutes?

My bike won't stay in sport or rain mode. It always goes back to street mode.

Thanks!

Battery voltage: 12.5 when engine off 14.0 when running

Time and date hold correctly

I thought they did go back into their default setting when shut off, or am I thinking if the traction control and wheelie control.

Mine stays in Sport mode. Haven't switched since I got it. I think I may have set that in the favorites menu.

I think the traction control will revert unless you buy the $110 dongle to make it stay.

Another question:

When you turn the key to "on" but don't start the engine, does your fuel pump make a squealing sound?

My friend & I bought 1290s a week apart. He has near 1k miles now and was surprised when his bikes 6500 rpm light reset itself somewhere around 650 miles. He also was surprised to find the bike rushing past the 6500 rpm limit...he reckons the throttle was being shut down limiting power until the magic mile break-in # was passed. He could not get into a dealer for the 620 mile check up so he changed his own oil. Says his bike went from the TQ monster we all knew we had, to something way better. Huge difference he says, and he's been around the block a few times & knows his bike. It's not just in his head.

So I was all excited today having 625 miles thinking mine would be unleashed too. Well, my red light doesn't blink @ 6500 now, but the bike isn't @ full power. In fact, it feels almost like its in rain mode.( it's not ) It does hit hard down low, say from 4 to 6k rpm, but after that the party's over. It feels like a 650. Also I'm getting a "general failure" message in the warning section along with a service message too. I have my 620 service scheduled for thursday so I'll know more then but these two bikes were set up different somehow at the PDI I'm thinking.

He went on and on how his bike "changed" for the better @ around 650 miles. Anyone else have this experience?

I went for a little ride with the wife today so I didn't have earplugs in and I noticed it makes a funny sound when you're off throttle. Hard to describe, but not a happy sound. Only happens when you're completely off the throttle just coasting on engine brake. Anybody else notice something like that? I guess I'll have the dealer check Friday when they do the 620mi service.

Other than that, still lovin it. I will say, this is probably the best fueling that I've ridden on a bike, S1000RR included. It's really impressive how smooth it is for being a huge, torquey v-twin.
