    Brand new s1000xr 2020 sluggish to take off from a stop

    Hey all

    Brand new owner here coming from a Yamaha tracer 900.

    My S1000xr seems sluggish to accelerate. Like I really need to ride the clutch for it to accelerate hard.

    Is this normal?? My Yamaha was real touchy and could accelerate quickly. Like the clutch would bite and the speed was enough to accelerate. Now if I accelerate the same way on the BMW I will stall multiple times.

    Just curious if others find the same.

    The XR has a very light flywheel that does not carry a lot of inertia ,but you will get used to it.


    My Triumph 1200 Explorer would pull away with no throttle input at all...and never mind my Harley...you could pull a train at idle and not stall that engine.

    Thanks for that. So I’m assuming it’s normal.

    If I want to pull away quickly I’m assuming just more revs?

    Yeah, just a combination of more throttle and more clutch slip until your moving..and I didnt ask what mode you were riding in, but I find its more apparent in rain mode as the throttle is a bit softer .

    It happens in all mode. Event dynamic pro with full torque applied. Maybe I’ve been spoilt by the torque on the tracer.

    yeah I come from mostly ducs, it's been a real learning curve to smoothly launch this inline four, still haven't gotten it down yet.

    most likely...but you will get used to it and it's a really fun bike once you do

    I had an FZ-09 back in 2014 when they first came out and loved that bike....but I sold it quickly because I couldn't stop doing wheelies everywhere i went and I was afraid for my drivers license...:)

    Tall first gear with lack of flywheel = more clutch and throttle.
    If you smile when the light goes on in the garage, you made the right choice.
    The first motorcycle race happened right after the second one was made.

    Adding 2-3 teeth to the rear sprocket or dropping a teeth in the front will cure that sluggish start.

    I knew your username looked familiar.  I think we used to hang around the same duc forums.  Didn't you have a 1st gen SF or Panigale?
