First annual service done Saturday
« on: February 28, 2017, 04:23:59 PM »
Had he first annual service done on Saturday
told the tech dude that the heated grips were shocking
the quickshift both up and down felt jerky and it was much smoother using the clutch
and that the dynamic brake light didnt seem to be working no matter how hard I hit the brakes!!

His replies were as follows
The heated grips on the XRs is a bit of a compromise to be honest as its a sports bike, i replied so sport bike riders dont get cold hands then ??
he reset and re learned the quickshifter ??
and told me that the dynamic brake light is working and turned on but its impossible to get it to work falsely no matter how hard you brake as it only does its flashy thing in an emergency !! how does the bike know its a fekking emergency ive got both brakes pinned with the ABS working on both wheels from 60 to 0 in about 18 feet with the son in law checking the back light and almost ramming me right up the top box now if thats not an emergency stop then im bollocksd
anyway £201.56 later I was off and the quickshift does work better LOL

Adventure Boy, what year is your bike if you don't mind me asking? I'm trying to find out when the dynamic brake light became available and who has/hasn't got it.....ie me, on a late 15 plate.

Ok Phil I phoned my dealer and asked this exact question as I bought mine and it was advertised with it albeit I couldnt get it to work!!

It was fitted to all 16 Plus bikes now this is where it becomes a bit silly as 16 bikes were in the dealers from September 2015 as I was told so pretty much a lottery really unless you know your bike is a 2016 model

mine is a 2016 model, built in November 2015 registered 1st March 2016 so it has got it

so a 16 bike built in 15 registered in 16 confused ? I was

I would phone the dealer mate and ask if yours is a 15 or 16 MY then youll know for sure

Yep - quick shifter is variable and not always smooth despite apparently identical shift parameters, heated grips are not hot enough for < 5 deg C
