    I give up and feel like a right muppet. Does anyone know how to set the suspension on a Gen 2 TE for two up pillion ridding? The Feckin next to useless manual has you going round in circles and I've exhausted every button pressing engine off/on option. Nowt on youtube either.  :084: :012: :021:

    I swear it's the same as gen 1, just hold down the D-ESA button for a couple seconds, and hold down more to cycle settings.

    Nope, tried that. I'm wondering if I've got a fault.  :084:

    Agh this is my confusion, cos the manual says when set it for two up/pillion it'll show on tft with 2 helmets like the Gen 1. But I can't get past the min/auto setting?????

    TE is the auto set suspension option. Which in terms of settings has Min or auto for preload which is supposed to adjust on the fly in the latter setting, and Road or Dynamic for damping choices. The 1 or 2 helmet option is for the lower spec sussies where preload is manually set to one of the two options shown cant remember what the other settings the lower spec comes with as mine is a TE.

    Thanks Dude, I went back to the "misleading" manual and the section with all the details on Dynamic ESA has one line for more info go to "80 pages on" and hey presto Dynamic ESA Pro as you say does it all in Auto mode. :152: :047: :037:
