    Hello from Lincolnshire

    Hi there, another new owner, this time a multicolour 2019 XE. I'm technically downsizing because this is the smallest capacity bike I've bought for years. Last one was a KTM 1190 Adv. Still getting used to the quickshifter (isn't it good!) and the power delivery (not sure yet but it is quite quick)

    I've had a couple of issues already.  First, ABS light stayed on.  Then orange engine light came on. Then the speedo went intermittently blank :114: After a quick search on here I checked the battery and the +ve was loose. Tightened up and set off; ABS off and speedo OK.  Engine light stayed on for a while and is now off.  It's in for a service in a couple of weeks so I'll get the codes checked.

    Secondly, the number plate fell off   :013:

    Yup, think it's an XR thing, lost mine on way to Willy woods couple years ago, new one securely held on with proper bolts.

    yup these push in numberplate holders look a bit crap.  Proper bolts for me too next time.  I will be looking to get a GS-911 or similar.

    I just ordered a UCSI-2000 and Motoscan app as I'm about to go through the whole lot, resetting all adaptations, service light, ABS pump bleeding etc. I can report back tomorrow or in a couple days as it's a significantly cheaper solution, and if it gets the job done, why spend more?

    I'd be interested in how you get on as that's the other option I was looking at.

    Hey, just got around to doing everything today, and 0 complaints, does what it says on the tin and then some. I reset service light, messed about with all the live readouts, was happy to find out I had no error codes apart from 1 high beam code which happened ages ago, no light for it tho, checked all the actuators, throttle plates, injectors, fan, abs pump, exhaust servo, it really can do everything. I also reset adaptations, and wow it made a massive difference. My throttle was -4% when on idle and it caused the bike to be extremely jerky when picking up the throttle especially in low gear low RPM environments, resetting that made an insane difference, I tried to reproduce the pulsing throttle I get when at like 5-10% throttle just totting around at 10 mph in 1st and it's completely gone. Also smooth pick up from 35mph in 6th gear, that's about 2600-2700 rpm, full throttle and it's just smooth. All this with some black widow headers I've yet to get to the tuner. I also reset the quick shifter and transmission but had no chance to properly test it though, I know in some low throttle instances going from 4-5 was a bit rough and sometimes it's just a bit "off" but just from the short run down to the shops and back if felt great and snappy, but I didn't have my usual boots on so I can't give full impressions yet. Either way, easily the best 100 quid tune up that you can do assuming all your other service is done.

    Nice one, I’ve got Black Widows, been tuned direct to ecu and still just a little jerky at low load/rpm as yours was so will try a throttle reset on my GS 911  :028:

    Do the throttle reset in road or rain mode, not sure why but dynamic and dynamic pro don't play nice apparently. Also when you relearn the QS put the suspension preload to 2 helmets.
