S1000XR - General Chat / Re: 2021 gen 2 no usb?

You say it's a Sept 20 bike but was built earlier in the year...what does that mean..?? Surely it's not a Sept 20 bike and was just registered in September..??

This can be quite confusing with the British machines.....it can be registered as a 21 plate machine but was actually built in very late 2019....It may have sat around for two years before being registered.....can be difficult when ordered parts etc... I know the VIN will be the definitive thing but it does get frustrating sometimes.

I'm also member of a couple of Ford Transit forums, (Mostly UK oriented) and as an example the guys from England may say they have a 63 plate Transit but when actually look at VIN plate the "build date" it was Aug of 2011...so it is actually a different year model and is a Euro-4 instead of a Euro-5. What is it with that..?? What am I missing..??

Smithy.

Its easy but probably not correct.The UK number plate is the year of first registration with the authorities and is completely unrelated to when the vehicle was manufactured. So a vehicle could have been manufactured 3 years ago but registered today as a "new" 2021 vehicle.🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🙃

So on a related matter (re:Gen2 USB), has the newest batch of XR's done away with the BMW power socket that is on the inside left-hand side of the cockpit?

Don't have that many years, but got 2 in the same rear tire. All my others have been OK.

I think this is all anecdotal again, since I've had 0 michelin punctures last 5 years yet i had half a dozen on pirellis in the last 6 months alone... just how luck would have it.

Agreed.

The PR5 is an excellent tyre and gives great confidence in the wet. I took the 01s off after 1,200 miles and sold them as part worn.

Maybe I was just unlucky getting so many punctures?

Changed my OEM Metzeler RT 01 for Michelin Road 5 and the improvement was immediately obvious. R5 is my preferred ST tyre.

You're right. I cancelled the order. It may still be a decent seat without the bladder in which case the price is a bargain, but I think I'll get a Russel Day Long. That is the only seat that worked for me on my K1200RS.
