The 610 is so stable, it does not require a steering damper. I found it a bit too stable and the turning ability was compromised as a result.
Thank you RR! :thumleft:

It will be lots of $$$, so appreciate your advice! ;)


The electrics (lights, indicators & horn) died on this weekend's trip in Swaziland. No issue with starting and the FI though. ;)

Have not checked anything yet. Any such previous experience? ???

Suspecting a fuse or wiring.


Sounds like one of the fuses under the right hand number board. I had one go once before. The fuse holders are not the best quality.
Correct. The front one, 20 A, is fused. Wonder why?

Nothing than the standard consumers on the bike.

Can someone please post a pic of the standard battery with leads connected (from top) My XTZ14BS seems too tall and terminals are up against frame with cable running over the battery. Is this the standard setup?
Surely if I was obsessed with motorcycles I’d have more than one; no two; no three; no no, four… ah, never mind…
