    Quick one for you guys?
    Am I right in say that the gen 2 suspension is fully automatic? i.e. don’t have to go into any settings to let bike know we’re 2 up with luggage?
    Obviously I can change to road / dynamic.
    Can’t find anything to select pillion etc like K1300 etc

    Yes, default is Auto preload on the ESA bikes

    You can manually over-ride with max or min settings

    As I understand it, they have a swingarm position sensor, (Gen-1 has one too), as the swingarm moves up in relation to the chassis with the weight of a pillion, the system resets the preload etc.. to suit.
