    "This safety recall involves the function of the front wheel lift-off assistant after receiving a software update at a dealer. The feature Riding Modes Pro includes a customizable riding mode “Dynamic Pro”. In the factory setting, the parameter “front wheel lift-off assistant” is deactivated. Riders can personalize this parameter to different levels. After a software update at a dealer the configuration in the riding mode “Dynamic Pro” will be reset to the factory setting (“front wheel lift-off assistant” deactivated). The rider will not be informed about this reset because it is not displayed in the instrument cluster. If the front wheel lift-off assistant is deactivated, a front wheel lifting will not be suppressed or adjusted.”

    Anyone experience an inadvertent wheelie, or do you all ride like twats anyway?  :010:

    its not a warning that its switched off. its the fact that the dealer would be changing this setting, and you wouldnt know. It's about protecting the dealer network, not protecting the riders.
